We Love a Flying Girl!

A favorite personality of the Quilting World is Melissa Stramel , She is simply put..Lovely. She has no idea that I am a big admirer of her work and love for life.  She is one of the loveliest folks I have found and she is going after her dreams which is always a positive message to carry to others. The Beloved pattern is hugely popular but because her daughter requested a ball gown she made some changes and added a couple of things and voila, she has reinvented the pattern for her daughters whimsy and now so can you! Purchase the pattern here.  We love her use of Happy Land found at Hancock’s of Paducah.   Just a reminder Happy Land is moving fast to make room for Circa so don’t delay your decision. Getting harder to find. Melissa thanks for delighting the world with frills and fancy!!!!

Do not miss the raffle June 15th.


Keeping my word

As you know Circa is truly sweeping the nation and because of that I am holding tight to mine.  I have a photoshoot to do!!  But I thought that because all of you mean the world to me that I would at least offer up half yards of all of Circa for all my pals out there. So here’s the deal. The comments have to be here for us to really know what the heck is going on.  So share with your neighbors we love that about all of you.  Tell us your favorite Sis Boom story if you like but you don’t have too or maybe how you know Jennifer (me) or maybe how you got into sewing.  We love your stories!!  Tell us about your business and what it means to you. Short and sweet , we love getting to know you.  If you know me from facebook / twitter  you’ll know I try to reach out to everyone.  As we are growing I’m still the same girl who launched Sis Boom and know the heart of what goes on here is because of all of you.  It’s a special place with lots of special people and it does take a village.

So leave your message here and you will be entered to win a big stack of 1/2 yard of all Circa’s.  I kid you not.Offer ends June 15th at midnight so everyone gets a chance.

NYC Library with the ferocious lions out front!!

Maura Madden and Jessica Pigza from Crafternoon have invited us to teach a garland class on one of their get together’s and we couldn’t be more excited…..meeting crafters in NYC is the ultimate exchange.  Maura Madden also has an incredible book on Amazon called  Crafternoon and both have been on Martha Stewart show so this is going to be lots of fun!!! Such a big city and hard to find like minded crafters  unless you are at an event like this.  We are also going to be giving one lucky person a copy of Happy Home!!  So if you are in the vicinity please come and let us know you will be attending.  We love to keep track of all of you!! Sometimes when I get a heads up  that you’ll be there I keep you on my radar and then get a chance to hug you in person.  So today’s post is garlands and just enjoy the process.  See you in NYC !! Let me know .  I lived in NYC for 12 years so this is like going home!!  So grateful for the opportunity!! Before you go take a look at their fun blog  register at with your name and date of event..
