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!
The Sis Boom Collective market opens!!! 8pm for the US and 10 PM tomorrow Saturday in Australia!!! I am beside myself with anticipation. It has been so joyful to see all the contributions to this collective. Karynne Johnson of Chook Shed Design and Christie of Christies Quilting Boutique have organized quite a fiesta!! I am so moved by all the love! Get there and if you see something pounce, it moves quickly..just write sold and its yours!!
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. We hope you love them $85.00 each!! All different.
They will also be available at the show!!!!
