Watching Mommy Sew - SI0605

Watching Mommy Sew - SI0605

To all of the women out there who have ever:

read a book, tied a shoe, mended a boo-boo, wiped a nose, dried our tears, gave us a hug, taught us a lesson, passed on a tradition, allowed a mistake, picked up the pieces, stood on the sidelines, pushed us ahead, and generally been there for us - be it grandmother, aunt, mother, sister, mentor, co-worker, pastor, cousin, or simply a friend…

We say happy Mother’s Day to you all!!  We couldn’t do it without you. Thanks Mom!!

Inspiration from Sew Expo!

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

I wanted to share some photos from my trip to the Sew Expo In Puyallup, Washington. I was hosted by the Pacific Fabrics and Crafts booth, which has six locations as well as an online store. I presented two sell-out lectures Sew Vintage and Craft a Business:Sewing for Profit. Cheryl joined me to help out, and we had a great time working the booth with the Pacific Fabrics team!! I found some vintage treasures at the show I want to share with you. I also met some new friends whose businesses I want to share as well. Carol Saber of Japanese Textiles & Tours shares her jacket featuring vintage kimono fabric. Dyan Emery of Jennifer Osner Textiles share wonderful treasures including the gorgeous fuchsia and black crazy quilt I bought! Love the idea to take the vintage photo frame and use blackboard paint to turn in into a sign!!
