We have been working hard for the past few months with Sew News to debut our newest patterns and special videos and it's happening TODAY! The new Sew with Me video series features moi and the ever-talented Carla Crim. In each video, we take you through one new project from start to finish. Sis Boom Pattern Company developed four new amazing projects including Bonnie’s Flouncy Skirt, the Peggy Party Runner, the Wendy Weekender Bag and the Shellie Clutch, and all are shown in Sis Boom's newest fabric line Caravelle Arcade.

Stop what you're doing right now, grab yourself a cup or tea or coffee, and check out these darling tea mats Melissa Peda made over at 100 Billion Stars. Blues, pinks and big florals combine all my favorites into one easy sewing project! Aren't they smashing?! I can't get enough of them. She used fabric from our newest line Caravelle Arcade. The darling pink monogram adds the perfect final touch. The best part is, these can be whipped up in a jiffy! Maybe surprise a dear friend, a favorite teacher, our invite your bestest friend over for tea and nibbley things on the back porch, and enjoy this glorious weather we are having. Melissa was sweet enough to send me 4 of these, and I'm ever so grateful for the surprise. They really brightened up my weekend. Quick projects that make a huge impact are one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. How about you? I love seeing what you've been up to. Don't be shy. Share with me 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
