That’s what Circa gives us!! It’s a Glance at the past but not a stare. We love to borrow from the past but we love to fussy it up with all your favorite colors.  There is something you relate to something you can’t quite put your finger on..that would be the sentiment from an era gone by!  Hickity Pickity , along time friend of Sis Boom has embraced the sensibility of Circa and as always spins her own style amongst the folds.  We love her creations and we hope they inspire you. Get to know Judy Buchanan on facebook because she sells her wares and if you don’t sew this is your chance to get lovely affordable clothes made from Sis Boom Fabrics. Thanks Judy and of course the lovely Georgia who takes the beautiful pics!!

Elf Central

As you know we are getting ready for our annual show coming up Dec. 13, 14,15th that Thursday, Friday, Saturday.  So I just want to say I’m in the speed lane of crafting and enjoying my time immensely in the craft room.  My husband Peter and my assistant Madeline are making it so nice for me so that I ‘m free to create 100’s of items for the show so from October to December I don’t look up hardly.  But as crafters all know something amazingly divine happens when we are in the zone. It’s a magical time and I have so many ideas and those ideas breed new ideas so there is no time to despair.  I hope you all our well I’ve been thinking so much about the Sandy victims and praying for them and trying to do what I can.  Before I leave you I wanted to show you the Vanessa and Bettyann ready to be launched in two short weeks and it’s a very exciting time.  This is one of the last items in our book Happy Home to be done and then all the clothes in the book will be patterns.!!!  Thank you Carla for making this all come to life.  You are the best!


Below is Judy /Buchanan version . Thanks Hickity Pickity.  Judy takes custom orders!!!
