Sis Boom Room… the cozy version

A recipe for Sis Boom coziness… in style!

Curl up in a (4) Lime Green Herman Miller Eames arm chair whilst in some cozy (6) Lucky Brand Sabrina Star slippers. Rest your head on a set of (2) fabulous Sis Boom Pillows… the Back bay Hook pillow, and the beautiful pom-pom pillow, which takes after Sis Boom’s Prelude from Flower Power (you knew it looked familiar, right!?). Hang a romantic, delicate, light source from the center of the room, like the (3) Pagoda Chandelier, and for some added ambiance, strike a match and light a few candles that will rest beautifully in the whimsical (5) Horse in Wonderland Candle holder. Every so often, peak in the adorable (7) Silver Duck Mirror to remind yourself how cute you are! Our favorite part of the room? Design, sew, and drape some lovely curtains with Queen Street‘s Maritza & Dolin. Don’t have time for such a big project? Make some pillows to compliment the others, or design yourself a little something from our Patterns collection! The possibilities are endless! Have fun & get cozy!

Sis Boom Wonderland

Are you all snowed in?! Relaxing at home? Are you sewing away, spending time with your family, drinking hot cocoa, reading those books you’ve been waiting to get to? We hope you’re enjoying the beautiful, snowy, windy day and the last few days of 2010! Here’s a Sis Boom Winter Wonder Land for ya!

A Warm & Cozy Holiday to You & Yours

May your Holiday be warm, cozy, yummy and full of loving family, happy friends, and peace, peace, peace!!! Thank you for such a wonderful year! We could not do it without our dear Sis Boom Friends — we mean that! You all mean the world to us!

May your Holiday be Filled with Glamour!

We are wishing you a glamorous, stylin’, Sis Boom Holiday. May all of the parties you attend, and all of the parties you throw be full of laughter, joy, and wonderful friends! Have an awesome day and know that Sis Boom is wishing you all the best in 2011.

From Fat Quarters to a Beautiful Masterpiece

It just amazes me what people can create from a stack of fat quarters. To have the vision, the will, and the patience to sit down and design something so perfect and so lovely is simply magic. Take  a peep at this stunning Queen Street quilt designed by a dear friend, Victoria Findlay of Bumble Beans. We’re loving the shape that the center took on, as it is festive and reminds us a bit of the Holiday, which is just hours away at this point!

Sending you all peace during these last few crazy days of shopping, wrapping and stressing! I hope each and every one of you can find some time for yourselves to sit back, relax, and take some deep, peaceful breaths! Do it right now if you haven’t!

A Queen Street Challenge!!!

Hi all!

Hope you’re enjoying these cold, crisp days of winter … all leading up to Holiday & New Year celebrations! Can you believe 2010 is coming to a close?! In reflecting back on our year, we find ourselves daydreaming about all of the awesome things that Sis Boom has accomplished.. and one thing that stands out above all is our dear, dear Queen Street. It seems to be the line that has something for everyone, which we really love. We had such a wonderful response to Queen Street during our show and practically sold out of the entire line!

Apparently all of you out there love it just as much as we do! We hear it’s been flying off the shelves and we’ve seen such fun Queen Street projects here, there and everywhere! We’re writing to say that you should get it while it’s hot (and available!) and also….we have a fun challenge for you all!!!!…

Email us*  pictures of your queen street projects and we’ll have our little panel of judges (George and his friends) pick their top 3 projects to be featured on the blog! Need fabric? Check our long list of Sis Boom Fabric vendors on the left side of our blog. Expand the list to see all stores (click “see all”)!!

Get sewing! Can’t wait to see what you come up with! Points will be given for originality!!! Winner will be announced on January 5th (we will give you some time to get fabric and design your masterpiece!) This could be your big break!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!
