An excerpt from her latest News Letter….
Dear Sewing Family,
Now back to Easter sewing! We have never, never had so many gorgeous prints for your sophisticated, contemporary Easter sewing. Please look at the Sis Boom fabrics. The book, Girl’s World by Jennifer Paganelli is one of the most beautiful that has ever been printed. It ties with a pink ribbon separating the pattern section (with 21 patterns in all) and the book with spectacular photography and beautiful, beautiful, clothing. The directions are fabulous and there is a world of patterns in this one book. There are four patterns for girls sized 2 to 14. There is an apron, a tulle ballet skirt and an apron with a frilly pocket. Accessories include a headband, purse, paper doll overnight bag, badges and flower pin/barrette.
For decorating a girl’s bedroom, which will make her very happy, there are directions for banners with pompoms, two pillows, fabric animals, a quilt, a lampshade, memory board, pinwheel strands, and a happy birthday banner. To see the book on our website and order it, click here. To see the fabrics on our website ready to ship now please click here . When these fabrics are gone they are gone, so you probably will want to order them now. The book is only $24.95 and I guarantee it is one of the best sewing book values you have ever purchased. It is photographed by a very famous photographer, Tim Geaney who has photographed for Vogue magazine and other famous magazines. Ladies Home Journal says about Jennifer Paganelli, the author and fabric designer, “Jennifer Paganelli has a talent for creating whimsical pieces…blankets, flowered lamp shades, throw pillows…it’s inspiring.” Martha Pullen says, “Her patterns and fabrics are among the most creative and beautiful that have ever been developed. And the book, Girl’s World is a national treasure of sewing.”

Sis Boom Sightings
It’s what we love here. We get emails now and again that tell us of Sis Boom Sightings and we really and truly appreciate hearing about them..So Terri one of our die-hard fans emailed and told me about a quilt in this months Quilt Magazine by Karen Dumont of KariePatch Designs that really got our attention!! It is fabulous and the step by step is all there in the magazine. Karen chose Honey Child (which I saw plenty of at Lola Pink Fabric) to complete her quilt called Day at the lake which is really taking Bow Tie Blocks and standing them on their head. 3D no less. She along with Judy Jennings made a fabulous quilt that you have to have!! Thanks ladies!! Got a Sis boom Sighting to share?? We want to know.

It’s often our dear friend, Melissa P, of 100 Billion Stars, that comes up with an ingenious project that just makes you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?!”…
Well, folks, she’s done it again! So while you’re all anxiously awaiting to find out whether you won the West Indies raffle (you have some time), try Melissa P’s tutorial out for mod podge hangers!! We promise you’ll have a blast!!
Imagine giving them as a gift to a new Mommy? Hanging them in your toddler’s closet… maybe even your closet?? How about hanging a mod podged pants hanger on the wall, clipped onto a photo? Just throwing some ideas out there!!…
MODPODGE ROCKS… no, Seriously
Amy Anderson has it all wrapped up when it comes to Mod Podge influencing even the diehard users such as myself. Years ago I would create suitcases with Mod Podge from old Story Books. I always had a hard time with the finishing stage. Using varnishes and such , the suitcases couldn’t open would yellow etc… so then I tweeted to Amy what do we use to seal and Voila she tweeted back use a Matte acrylic sealer spray or paint on and look how lovely this turned out.
P.S. they do open. Just mod Podge and scraps and sealer. Hats off to our girl Amy!!
