Kelsey was named after, you guessed it, Kelsey! Kelsey is the daughter of Jenny Fish and quite the budding fashionista. The Fish Family lives in Texas and have been long time Sis Boom Fans. In fact, they are known as the FIRST documented Sis Boom Fans around here. We are so grateful for their support over the years and it was a thrill to name a pattern after this beautiful young lady. The Kelsey Top/Dress came be made in three lengths - top, tea length dress and maxi dress. This pattern is sweet and sassy and perfect for summer and fits girls 3 months to 14 years. Take Kelsey into the fall with a cardigan or long sleeve top underneath. We hope you enjoy sewing a Kelsey as much as we enjoyed designing her. Make one today and give us a shout on Facebook or Instagram!

This past weekend I had the luxury of attending Monarch Workshop. The workshop is run by an incredible group of women (including our very own Madeline) and aims to support "those who need a little push, those who are looking for a creative connection, and those who need inspiration to believe they can follow their dreams." The attendees were made up of a spectacular group of women whose occupations ranged from bloggers to therapists and real estate agents to artists. The two day workshop consisted of non-stop activities (lessons, speakers, crafting) that catered to the mind, body and soul. It was FABULOUS. Our fearless leader, Jennifer Paganelli, was a guest speaker and led the group in creating vision books. The books were created by gluing inspiring cut outs (words, quotes, images) from magazines onto blank notebook pages. There was yoga and lessons in make-up and skincare. We made our own dream catchers, ate delicious food (from the ladies at Whisk + Brush) and had a tutorial in all things confetti! Take a look below of more images from the incredibly talented Victoria Gloria: To see even more images click here For information on Monarch Workshop and to receive notifications about the upcoming Spring 2015 Workshop click here -- Lisa
Can you keep a secret? Since I totally trust my Paganelli Peeps, I'm going to let it all out...just don't tell my boss... You guys, I have the BEST job in the world! I get to be surrounded by incredible people and breathtaking fabrics all day. We chat, we work, we craft, there are puppies here...what more could you ask for? I feel so incredibly lucky and grateful to have landed a job with Sis Boom that if someone dared me to eat dirt, I'd totally do it! So, what has me jumping for joy today? The answer is: the job perks, of course! Yesterday the most incredible dress arrived at the office and I got to try it on!! This patchwork Good Company (in stores November 2014) dress was inspired by a J.Crew silhouette and the seamstress absolutely nailed it! Not only was it super comfortable, but it ended up being super convenient during a business meeting as well. When speaking about Jennifer's upcoming line, Good Company (did I mention it will be available in stores November 2014), I simply stood up to reveal what was to come! What else did I do for the hour I spent in the dress? Craft and snap some selfies, of course! Hope everyone enjoys the sneak peek at the collection! -- Lisa

Cut from an old quilt that had made its way to the flea has been revived in a beautiful and luxurious way. The beautiful Window Pane Quilt is stunning in this 12 x 24 pillow. Backed with Ticking this 50 year old quilt handmade by some wonderful person has a new legacy as comfort pillows. They are perfect for the Holidays and beyond. We are so happy with the results.
