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!!
So imagine my surprise when I saw lovely images of this beautiful woman in a dress she created using our Border print from Beauty Queen (Valerie) in her dress design. I almost fell off my chair when I got to see her vision in real time. Exquisite. border prints can go a long way but you have to be inspired, you have to know what they can be used for and we think Paisley Farm did an incredible job!! You will be so stuck on her blog!! She does it all so well!!!! Sofia lives in Las Vegas , Nevada and her blog is so inspirational. She loves Floral fabric so I would say she really gets me. I am so excited for you to meet her and see her beautiful dress that I know will make you swoon. I took the same border print and used it on my antique bed as a covering and I just love the results so whatever the use just know you can’t go wrong with a border print..heavenly ideas await you! So be sure to follow Sofia Moore on her blog and Facebook page, we are hoping she does it in other colorways. This is very much like our Angie so I expect to see some of those being created. Thanks Sofia!!! Please show us how you use your border prints!!!
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.!!
Here’s the remarkable tote everyone talks about in our Happy Home book. We actually have a beautiful sunhat as well to show you the versatility of quilting cottons, not just for quilts but has expanded to apparel and home dec product categories. We just adore Circa and are so glad you have decided to hoard that line because it will be years before it makes a comeback if at all. It is a classic and will live on long after the shelves are depleted. We thought we’d show you two of the projects from Happy Home done up in Circa for your viewing pleasure. As you all know I have made it my mission to get these books into every sewist’s hands so they can have fun creating all the loveliness inside these books!! I know I belabor the issue but I love that these books connect us all and inform us of the aesthetic that is Sis Boom. We love that you join us in our homage to color and all the artists that have gone before us in celebrating color!
So enjoy making the market tote and sunhat we appreciate you!!

So when you give us the thumbs up on a pattern or a product we get so very very excited!!!! So browse through our pics find inspiration and get to your bliss!!! We support the dream in everyone!!!
This shoot started with Thunder cracking and lightening bolts and everyone in the kitchen at 7am in case a tree decided to fall on the house…Poor George was shaking like a leaf..I wondered what God had in store and how we would pull it off but I just had to trust.

We can feel the romance of Circa!!! We wanted to share with you some of the beauty from our most recent shoot…Some of these are our own patterns revisited and some our from Girls World, again revisited!! We feel so blessed to be working with the master ..Mr. Tim Geaney!!
We had a magical photoshoot with Tim Geaney our favorite photographer in the whole wide world. His photos are just soulful and touching. We can’t believe our good fortune when we get to have fun with him in the jungle or in his studio. We love a collaboration and we love trying new things, it’s how we grow into ourselves. I hope these photos engage you and encourage you to be expressive and enjoy the process!!
Check out all the inspiration!!
We love the the Marco Pattern on women..great for summer!!!!
As you can see we have disappeared for a few days and we apologize . As a designer these are the moments that are most stressful. I want to bring you the very best of Sis Boom and that means working like crazy with the stylist (Madeline) and my seamstress (Bettyann) we go until the sunsets and as most of you know I pop up early to get the inspiration on paper. We adore you all and hate when we can’t be in touch with all of you all the time. You are what make me want to raise the bar every time. Carla is busy working on a Sis Boom pattern for all of you and we are so grateful to that very busy woman. Remember to purchase all the Scientific Seamstress classic patterns on Etsy. Today we go underground for more planning and styling but we will be back soon!!! So get your ticket to the show and get a front row seat..(:))))) we are so excited for you to see.
