Tuesday Fun and Games

Our Monday game was a busy one, did any of you guess how many yards of fabric was in the stack? It was big, and I hope you all had a good time guessing.  Much better than guessing how many Jelly Beans are in the jar!

Today we have more to bring you.  Wardrobe by Me has so many great patterns and they have donated a prize of $25 to spend in their store!! How awesome is this! You can see their Facebook page here and make sure you say hi from us!

Are you wanting to make clothes and shoes to match for your babies and kids? Sew U Can has some really cute patterns that you are going to want to try.  Everyone needs new shoes when they get a new dress.  Check their patterns out on Etsy and then drop by their Facebook group to get all of the fun insider info.

Speaking of babies, A Sparkly Baby has generously donated a pattern of your choice to win today! How exciting. You will have to choose which one you want, and they have a ton of cute ones! Then check them out on Facebook, to keep posted on all of the new stuff! 

What are you going to do with all of the patterns with no fabric to sew with ( really just kidding, I know we all have fabric).  How about some awesome new fabric from Northern Rose Fabrics.  They have donated a $20 gift card for one of our lucky members.  Check out their Facebook group and see all of the lovelies they have to offer.

Phew, well that is how our Tuesday is looking and it is jammed packed with some amazing prizes for you.

Thanks to all of you for making this all possible.

Weekly Update 5/11/2018

Hard to believe that this month of May is already half over! Time just goes so quickly!

We have set up a pre-test this week for our new Love Potion No. 9 dress and that is going swimmingly.  The results are going to be gorgeous, and this top and dress will be a staple in your capsule wardrobes.  Make sure to keep your eyes open for the full tester call coming very soon.

The Perfect Play Henley for babies is in full test mode now and should be released in the next couple of weeks.  These tops looked great on kids and now seeing them on babies is just the sweetest thing!

We are also testing the all sleeve add-on pack for the Gigi's Bowtiful Top and the Playdate Top for girls. Adding a different sleeve really changes up the look of these tops.

The big news for next week is our 8K Member Celebration! We have had a fantastic showing of love from the online sewing community and have many sponsors lined up to give away some really great prizes.  Stay tuned to the Facebook group for all of the details on how to be a winner! 

To celebrate Mother's Day and Kellie's birthday we are having a huge sale through 5/13 and the whole site is on sale.  Now is the time to get those patterns you have been waiting to pick up.  So many new releases are just waiting for you to sew them up! This is a wonderful time to share our patterns with your sewing friends.  Everyone loves a sale and to shop with friends is always fun!

A new sew-a-long will be starting on Monday May 14th and we will be taking you through the sewing of the Snail Hunters Pants and Shorts.  You can sign up on our Sew A Long group here.  

Phew! So many things happening and we will continue to keep you updated as new and exciting things get going.

We hope your bobbin is always full. We appreciate each and every one of you.

Until next time, take care, and happy sewing,

Ugly Fabric Contest!

UGLY FABRIC CONTEST WIN $15 IN SHOP CREDIT

Sew up your ugliest fabric using a PTP pattern. We need a fabric only photo and a finished product photo.
Comment on this post with your photos to enter. 
Contest will end 3/31 and winner will be announced 4/2

I'd just like to tell you a bit of back story on this. I've got a bin (a really large bin) full of fabric that someone "donated" to me. It's ugly with a capital U! In fact this is the least ugly fabric of them all. I couldn't figure out what to do with all of it. My youngest daughter is growing out of ALL of her night gowns... enter ugly fabric. SO I started to sew up all the ugly fabric into Night Night Gowns.....
They are so ugly they are actually are cute! So I thought it would be so much fun to see what kinds of ugly fabrics you all have in your stash and what you can make using them. I'm sure we will see some amazingly UGLY fabrics! 
Happy sewing and can't wait to see what you make.
