What's New at Kimberbell: October 2023


Autumn is a wonderful time here at Kimberbell. We enjoy fall to the fullest, anticipate the holidays, and start really planning for the year ahead!

Here's what's new at Kimberbell this October. 🎃

Inside the Hoop

TIME CHANGE! Our fun Inside-the-Hoop show now airs every Thursday at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time. (It was previously at noon, so please note that it's now at 10:00!)

If you miss the live broadcast, though, no worries! You can watch the replay by clicking the links below. 


This month, Ginger, Kim, and Deanna shared  tips and techniques on how to create dimensional fringe, how to use Clear Blue Tiles on a variety of projects (Think waaaaay beyond quilts!), how to do block-by-block background quilting, and so much more!

Buy-a-Block Program

We also released the Snowman block from Kimberbell's Cup of Cheer Advent Quilt as this month's Buy-a-Block design. It's only $5 and a flurry of fun to stitch! ☃️

NEW Deck the Palms Spark Event

Also this month, Certified Shops began hosting Kimberbell's new four-hour Spark Event: Deck the Palms! 🌴

At this Kimberbell event, you'll create the Bulb Ornament Zipper Pouch , the Let’s Flamingle Cinch Sack, and the darling Palm Tree Charm.  Take a look!


That small zipper pouch just kills me! 😍 You'll also go home with a Present Zipper Pouch, Round Ornament Zipper Pouch, Let’s Party Cinch Sack, and three additional charms to stitch later.

With multiple styles and sizes to choose from, Deck the Palms is Christmas fun for everyone! Click HERE to find a shop hosting this super-fun event. (It's just the right length for busy beginners!)

New Products

This month we also released our new Nativity Stuffies! Each of these 13 beloved characters come in three sizes and feature a variety of decorative stitches and techniques.


You can find this project anywhere Kimberbell products are sold. Learn more about Nativity Stuffies HERE!

What's New Wednesday

What's New Wednesday is a highlight of the week for all of us. Join Kim live from her sewing room every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. MT to learn what's new, ask questions, enter our epic giveaways, and see what Kimberbell fans are creating during our "Sew & Tell With Kimberbell" segment.


This month on What's New Wednesday, Kim talked about several new Kimberbell products, including the Nativity Bench Pillow, the Nativity Stuffies, the Cranberry Star USB Case, two Digital Dealer Exclusives projects (the Dimensional Bat Jar Topper and the Pineapple Crossbody Bag), Mini Quilts, and more!

Kim interviewed Tori from M.E. Time about the newest Bella Box on October 18th and she also interviewed me on October 11th. (I shared pieces from some of my favorite nativity sets.) ✨

Machine Embroidery With Kimberbell Podcast

Did you catch our podcast this month? We covered some really good topics!

I especially recommend listening to our special October 17th episode where Kim interviews Kathryn Schmidt from Maywood Studio. During their conversation, Kathryn gives advice for choosing the right fabrics for your projects. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from a true fabric expert!


Remember, you can listen to our Machine Embroidery With Kimberbell podcast through streaming services like Google, Podbean, Spotify, Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Podcast, and more. 

Blog Posts

Last but not least, I wrote several articles for you to enjoy on the blog this month, including this delightful cranberry sauce recipe (just in time for Thanksgiving)! 🍁


Mmmmm. I can't wait to make that yummy sauce again soon! Here are some other October articles from the blog. (Just click the link to read the post!) 

PLEASE NOTE: If there's ever a topic you'd like me to address on the blog, please drop a comment below! I welcome your suggestions. 😊

Ready for November!

So, what's ahead for November? A whole lot of fun, that's what. We're working hard on new Digital Downloads (including Vault and Buy-a-Block products) as well as the release of Kimberbell Mini Quilts! And there's a whole lot of BUZZ about next year's Digital Dealer Exclusives projects...

It's going to be a great month as we look forward to the holidays together!

Again, thank you SO much for your support this October. We love to Experience the Joy of Creativity® with you!
