Hope you are enjoying your Summer. The weather has been unbelievably hot.. kinda perfect for tackling some unfinished sewing. So far I have managed to make a list of sewing projects I would love to check off my list before the school year gets underway next month.... in 26 days. Who's counting? I am going to take a short vacation to visit family & friends in Minnesota next week and will be closing the shop for 3 days - August 4, 5, & 6. I will be back in the shop on Tuesday, August 9.
I was so flattered when Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts asked if I would like to be featured on her awesome blog. Jennifer is part of the Modern Quilt Guild in Charlotte, NC and has some fabulous tutorials & fabric swaps on her blog. Check her out and become a follower and you might be the winner of a fabulous fat quarter selection from Joel Dewberry's lovely new Heirloom Collection. Ok - I know I'm late letting you know about this opportunity on Jennifer's blog - 1 day left to enter and win - this is quite rude on my part, I apologize. So I am going to have an additional Giveaway for you to win 13 fat quarters from Joel's NEW supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus collection. You know what? You deserve another opportunity to win free fabric! Yes you do. Ok, leave me a comment about a super fast and easy sewing project you are contemplating to make with this gorgeous fabric and I will randomly select 2 winners on Wednesday - before I head out of town next week.
One more thing ~ next month the Design Camp will be held the week of August 8th and will be offering sewists some fun fashion challenges. Students will be receiving the Built by Wendy Dresses book which offers endless inspiration and solutions when it comes to customizing your wardrobe. We have a few spots left ~ call me if you want to join this fun class.
