One of my favorite things to do is to share with you the Scientific Seamstress Patterns with you. Carla Crim Just introduced the Be-bop!! For Girls and their Dolls!!!! Yes you heard me correctly. I just absolutely love this one …heck I would wear it! so pretty, so painterly like the artists smocks from back in the day. Purely and genuinely innocent and lovely!! We are so happy for her and we love that her team has been doing sew alongs and how-to’s on the Scientific Seamstress website. They will be putting zippers in this week so pay attention to the Scientific Seamstress website!! Look at the beautiful flower pin from Girls World that she designed for our book Girls World. She is the very very best their is. Carla continues to be one of the first PDF designers and consistently on the cutting edge. We are so grateful to have her in our business but more importantly in our lives. Hats off to another win Carla!! Oh What I love about her work is that she gives options, This one can be a flutter sleeve, a long sleeve, a dress, a top, lots of bang for your buck!! Check out the photos on Etsy.

Maybe a shout out to your local store for carrying Sis Boom fabrics or a photo of old Sis Boom stock and a location they can be found. We have a need for old stock!!! People scour the internet day and night for our first lines. Most will pay top dollar! We also want to get to know you if you are carrying Sis boom fabric and get you on our locator list. It’s hard in a world of online sellers to find a spot but we want you to know we are holding a place for you..Having a sale?? Tell us so we can let your neighborhood know. These quilters and clothing designers will travel!!! That much we do know. We have an active community on facebook. Alas the dreaded facebook but it’s amazing how fast we can get up to speed to see our favorite fabrics. Brick and mortars, dead Sis Boom stock, can’t move, post your photos to Jennifer Byrne Paganelli and we will chat you up!!! Better yet show us what you have and then our sewists will make the trip. Are you a fan of Sis Boom ??? Take a photo in your favorite store that carries Sis Boom and enter to win 5 yards of Circa!!!! Ends August 31st!! We will be sharing more about that. We want every seller to be an online seller , to be known for carrying Sis Boom. We are an eager bunch and we love to chat!!! Got a favorite store in your area??

Rachael Daisy of Blue Mountain Daisy has been coming by my blog for a few years and she is so supportive and kind to all the folks we post and always has a good word to add so I thought once again I would put her in the spotlight because she really knows how to work a quilt. I love to see the quilts on a long arm quilting machine!!! I tell folks how big they are and people can’t even fathom the scale. Look at this magnificent quilt of West Indies!!!! We’ve actually had it on here before but I love it on the machine and you get a sense of scale. This is huge!!!!!! Rachael you consistently pump out the beauties. We are so fortunate that you love West Indies. Here’s a link for some West Indies fat quarters if you are dreaming of creating. Sew Love Fabrics on Etsy has lots of West Indies!! I like the green set below!
I love when this happens, just trolling facebook and come upon one of our dear friends in Australia using her creative license on one of our Sis Boom patterns. Love the Cathy Pattern done long and love the ribbon at the waist and boy the Queen Street Toile just blows my mind..(I did that) I found some listings on etsy . Don’t forget to ask your etsy and ebay sellers if they have more than one yard..they usually do. Sellers just fyi if you can find away to list yardages you have in stock try and do so.( I know it’s not easy to monitor that) I think folks are looking to make larger items, duvets, curtains, apparel etc. If you do list yardages you have in stock let me know. Fabric.com does a great job of listing yardages on hand. If you already do list stock amounts..Let me know. Just trying to make it easier on the consumer. anywhooooooo I digress.
Girlfriend Kim Vanderbelt from Australia just sent these pics via facebook ..make sure to friend her..one of the sweetest gals on the planet. Look at her daughter Katharine looking like an island beauty. Cathy pattern sales will jump through the ceiling today at least I can only hope with fantastic photos like these. Kim serged the collar and hem I love the whisper of purply blue it leaves behind. Thanks for sharing Kim!!
