So my first line for Joann fabric and craft store is perfect for Christmas stockings banners, and tree skirts!! Just take a look at all of these beauties and the combos of lettering and backgrounds are endless. Throw in some James Thompson Ticking (available in so many rich colors) We are thrilled with the stocking and hope to have a pattern next year in time for the Holidays. The vintage pom poms are all available on Ebay! Check out the green dots and the red dots cause they are fab for Christmas!
The Sis Boom Collective market opens!!! 8pm for the US and 10 PM tomorrow Saturday in Australia!!! I am beside myself with anticipation.

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!!

Nothing motivates us harder at Sis Boom than the love we receive from all of you so today we’re celebrating Jenny Eliza through your eyes! So here are some “#JennyEliza” pics we found within the past week on Instagram! We hope they bring you as much joy as they bring us:Keep the photos coming!!–Lisa
Jenny Eliza was my mom’s nick name for me and it always made me feel sooooooo good. Mom’s nick names had a way of doing that. With that in mind Jenny Eliza for JoAnn’s has the same feel good character that describes that cozy feel mom communicated every time she chirped my name. I love Jenny Eliza, the scale, the colors, all perfect for quilting, and sewing beautiful clothing and home designs. Madeline captured the happiness in this cool graphic below with this wonderful layered dress. She’s so cool!!!!
I hope you’ll be standing by when this arrives at your local store!! We hope that it tickles your soul and inspires you to do pretty!!! Please follow Jenny Eliza on facebook for the latest updates. …as always thanks for dropping by we are so happy to have you!!
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!!
Something very big coming to Sis Boom wholecloth Quilts made in the USA. As you know not many designers offer wholecloth quilts because they are so costly to make. We pay a huge premium to do business in America but we also know this is something that many of you want. We are starting with twin bedspread quilts only!! These are an investment for sure but so worth it!!! These are heirloom quilts.
These will last a lifetime just like our ancestors quilts! They will travel with your children throughout their lives and the beauty is these are ready made from our Circa Line, no custom available but we would like to know if folks would like to see Queen and King so please let us know. We hope to hear from you!! These are $400 each and please no hate mail, we are trying our best to keep them made in America. Once we get into volume orders we may be able to reduce the price. But we are years from that. Hope you like them. They will be available in our shop very soon!!
