Sis Boom Holiday Blog Tour – Day 3 The Ethan and the Marco

As we roll into the Thanksgiving week home stretch, we hope you have a wonderful, and blessed holiday with family and friends near and far. As always, we are thankful for our fans. We couldn’t do what we do without your continued support. Thanks for loving all we do here at Sis Boom.

We hope you have enjoyed our blog tour so far. Today, Kelly of Handmade Boy has a lovely write up about what she loves about the Ethan and Marco shirts for her boys.

Sis Boom for the Holidays

by Kelly S


I LOVE the holidays! Seriously love them. I love getting together with my family and cooking crazy amounts of food. I love the traditions we have developed over the years. One of them being pajama pants. We are totally casual and I’ve actually declared Thanksgiving and Christmas pajama pants day. Yeah, you read that right, my family comes over and we hang out and eat dinner in our pajama pants. So comfy! However, my kids still need some nice clothes this time of year, especially Thomas for his Suzuki concert. So, I made him the most adorable Sis Boom Ethan with this gorgeous fabric from Phat Quarters and paired it with Sis Boom’s Bosco Bow Tie. Talk about adorable!!!
 I love making button down shirts for my guys. There is just something about a button down that is so clean and simple, but beautiful. It’s a wonderful pattern for showing off some topstitching.

Hickity Pickity for Jenny Eliza

hickity hickityp hickitypick HickityPi HICK HickitypickitySo by now you have heard of Hickity Pickity and I know for some of you it can be confusing because we are always talking about them on Facebook. they are the leaders in their genre. They use quilting fabrics for all of their products and we couldn’t be happier that they are smitten with both Sis Boom and Jenny Eliza. Judy Buchannan has been the visionary of Hickity Pickity and now along with her daughter they have artistically styled a very branded look.  They bow to Lily Pulitzer but have a certain signature that moves beyond that and distinguishes them from the pack.  They are also the ones that got the Aussies all their Jenny Eliza and we are so grateful for their generosity.  Hickity Pickity  you make us thirst for more of the incredible style that is you!!! Follow them, They will make you anything, you will enjoy working with them. They are in Florida and ship internationally!!! Organic Moments thanks for all the beautiful photos.


Public announcement

Wow I am the luckiest girl I know!!!  This past weekend I was unable to attend Quilt Market due to our imminent show here back at home.  I was fortunate to be blessed by lovely friends who really did an outrageous job of sharing Lucky Girl with all of you.  First of all to know the Long Ladies of Marie Madeline Studios is to love them.  Hearts as big as the eye can see.  You just want to be around them and be smothered by there openness to love you right back.  I am so touched by their gifts and there uncanny ability to make beautiful things. This year with appliques and stunning clothing and fierce patch working I can only pray that they hit the roof in sales!!  My understanding was that the booth was always crowded!!  I want to thank Freespirit for supplying them with Lucky Girl so they could have everything ready for market.  Long Girls what can I say..except your beauty out shined everything ! I will always be your fearless cheerleader and always here for you.  Jenny thanks for your satellite reports from the Convention center in Houston you did an amazing job!!!  So please venture over they have lots of Lucky Girl in stock and Patterns that will bring a smile to your soul.!!

Soft Spoken

Lynn Harris’s quilts speak to me I love how an innocent golden brown pinwheel glides over the surface of her Lucky Girl Quilt.  It is indeed magical and I am always happy with the choices she makes when doing a Sis Boom Quilt. Lynn is wonderful and now has a long arm quilting machine so talk to her.  I send it to her and she does the quilting. This collection reminds me of an old quilt with random pieces thrown together but it’s the darks and the lights that create the story!!! I love the navy in this collection because it grounds everything else.  Thanks for the classic you created Lynn. I am in heaven….seriously!!

Hit Send

I did it, I announced Lucky Girl on Facebook. It’s always thrilling to launch a new line but it can be terrifying simultaneously!! You just always want everyone to be happy and that you continue to raise the bar for yourself.  Achievement can never really be measured so it has to come from within.  I like this line so much and know that you will have so much fun putting the designs  together. You know how much I love seeing your work and if I can help you launch a little biz so you can stay home with the kids I am happy to do so!!!! So I hope you are enjoying the summer it can be difficult juggling kids and your biz but take heart in knowing it will come when you are ready and not before.  Savor the notion that you are right where you are supposed to be!!




Keeping my word

As you know Circa is truly sweeping the nation and because of that I am holding tight to mine.  I have a photoshoot to do!!  But I thought that because all of you mean the world to me that I would at least offer up half yards of all of Circa for all my pals out there. So here’s the deal. The comments have to be here for us to really know what the heck is going on.  So share with your neighbors we love that about all of you.  Tell us your favorite Sis Boom story if you like but you don’t have too or maybe how you know Jennifer (me) or maybe how you got into sewing.  We love your stories!!  Tell us about your business and what it means to you. Short and sweet , we love getting to know you.  If you know me from facebook / twitter  you’ll know I try to reach out to everyone.  As we are growing I’m still the same girl who launched Sis Boom and know the heart of what goes on here is because of all of you.  It’s a special place with lots of special people and it does take a village.

So leave your message here and you will be entered to win a big stack of 1/2 yard of all Circa’s.  I kid you not.Offer ends June 15th at midnight so everyone gets a chance.
