Erika Rodriguez and Cheryl Pinkman have won the Raven Hill Fabric Dolls and thank you everyone for playing along in our raffle. I think we all agree on Emily Moss's talent!!!  Some other things I want you to be aware of are the number of quilts that Nancy Geaney of Go Make Your Bed has created of late…Top two photos…and
also my friend Jamie Harned who makes our baby quilts and has her own Etsy shop…don't get me started…called Sweet Baby Jamie!!  This girl doesn't sleep, she got a long arm quilter that hasn't stopped since she purchased it over a month ago and that I like to think was christened with Sis Boom fabric…All of these ladies make my world a better place because we are all winners everyday we get to wake up to gorgeous fabric….Am i right???  The design world just keeps getting better and I'm grateful to be one of many talented folks. You guys are the best and please come back next week for another fun contest ok?? Oh and if you see George, head of our customer service department could you tell him Monday is a workday???

Thank You Josie!

This was a tough challange for us!  A wonderful woman and her beautiful daughter asked to come by and talk to me about a graduation dress.  I'm always up for the challenge but teenage girls have their likes and dislikes and I wanted to be certain we could deliver.  So I took notes for my seamstress, smiled the whole time , but I was a bit nervous.  She and her mom had looked everywhere and I didn't want them waiting for two weeks and then not be sure so I told them to keep looking while we worked on it because unfortunately custom anything can be dissapointing if  interpretations don't match up.  First round I wasn't sure how it would hang and so added a ruffle at the bottom for extra weight.  Josie a girl with a fashion sense of her own , did not like the ruffle but everything else was perfect.  I was so glad she could speak her mind and ask for what she wanted…So a week later the ruffle nowhere in sight , Josie was giddy with the results of her creation and so was her mom!  So here you have the results of this fine, perfectly tailored dress, we named "The Josie Dress".   It is totally her design and we couldn't be happier with the results.  So thank you Josie!!

Just want to hug um up!!

Sew Mama Sew

I'll tell you when a designer comes out with a new collection we love to see all the places it shows up and the fuss you all make about it makes us so happy because truth is, we design to please.
We love to design and I'll always throw extra pink in cause I've learned you can't live without it and neither can I!!!  Believe it or not we've been known to sweat it out a bit to see who picks up the line.  Not every line is going to be picked up by all the stores (mortar and brick or online) all of the time.  But there is something about that clothesline at Sew Mama Sew that makes me feel as though I've arrived.  Kristen Link has been a huge supporter and I've been so grateful to her for all she's done. This in no way diminishes the way I feel about all of you who have embraced Sis Boom fabrics and throughout the years have unwrapped, unpacked, stored, cut, and sent out every single yard. I am so grateful to everyone in this community.   For those of you who follow us here at Sis Boom it's about rich ,saturated color and right now we clamor for it!! So take a peek at Sew Mama Sews blog April 2nd for some fun giveaways.  Tell them I sent you!!
