Who knew that could be a background song for a life style face lift..but it got your attention and that’s what matters. Just want to show you what I’m working on. Seriously you all mean the world to me. Our facebook page is jumpin!!!!! So here are just a few of the things happening around here. We are gussying up the place and getting ready to welcome you to #sisboomworld where everything that happens here stays here..xo
From welcome door hangars to catnip treats we got you covered at #sisboomworld. oh and thanks for stopping..means the world to me. There I said it twice..
Our intern artist Lauren Cody was commissioned to revamp the vintage Putz Houses that had seen better days. Lacking their luster Lauren went to work this past summer to renovate these little houses from the past and gave them character . Wow, they are so happy now and definitely a place I would like to live. 🙂 Love you guys. Thanks Lauren for the love you pour into these. More Houses at our show below..xo
PS Barbara Strawser will be here and she can’t wait to meet you all!!
Hawthorne Threads ordered more Circa for those collectors (hoarders) out there! They have cut you fat quarters and charm packs and all that good stuff. So please take what you need to complete your Sis Boom Treasury!! We are so excited this line filled you with inspiration! We love all the ideas and are amazed at the talent out there!! This may be the end of it so grab up when you can!! The sellers shelves are making way for Lucky Girl!!!
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!
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.
You have to love Violet Fields new pattern. We are crazy about it. The Emmaline dress can be found here. We adore it in Circa and love how the Taylor in blue was just made for little girls, priceless, precious!!!! I just couldn’t wait to show you this photo and have you watch the fabric come to life. An abundance of floral bouquets tells a beautiful story on this little girl. Fabric found here.
Brothers and sisters can now have the Sis Boom vibe . Check out the Hamling’s on this beautiful spring day and you can be sure mama Jeanne made the most beautiful clothes. This just excites me so much to see a bowtie and a shirt all from Sis Boom patterns as well as the Marissa and the Vanessa. Gorgeous family she’s raising and I get to be the beneficiary of Jeanne’s talents. So thanks Hamlings for this beautiful portrait on facebook so grateful to see you all! And on top of all that beauty the Scientific Seamstress has 30% off all Sis Boom patterns so use code TRYSCI call her nutsy!!!!!! That is a great deal!
Zabtree Couture you have quite the eye. OMG it takes a special vision to put these fabrics together in this ingenious way but I think the theorey is if you love it others will too. I never would have put these together but omg I can’t stand it ,thrilled with the outcome and I know it is going to inspire others to really just may I say “CLASH” if it feels right do it!!! Sometimes a matchy matchy world can close us off from amazing options but friends of Sis Boom all know to do whatever their heart calls them to do! We see it over and over with the folks highlighted on the blog. We love your signature, we want to see what you are up to!! These photos give permission for others to do the same. I get in trouble because I’m not so matchy matchy but my heart flattens a bit when all the blues match, takes the fun out of creativity. There is an energy that we don’t see other places when folks express themselves in this colorful way. Zabtree you rock my casbah!! Theresa Abel Martin you go girl. Find her on facebook.
PS. take a look at the lining of the dress!
