September is National Sewing Month, for good reason
I've always looked forward to Fall. The weather is such a nice break from the summer heat here on the Virginia piedmont, the leaves are spectacular, and the fashion!! Oh the fashion.
I've been an avid sew-er all my life and the change of season makes me feel all squirrely with preparation. New clothes, perhaps a new coat and new pair of boots.
With the "covid 6" pounds finally leaving, and my determination that they not return even if we have restrictions that make me stay home, I really NEED to sew.
I'm ready for some pretty toppers for Zoom meetings, an outfit for my occasional shopping trips, and a nice car coat.
I'm ready to tackle a pattern system that I've always heard about, the Lutterloh system. I finally bought a system and a catalog of their patterns (new supplements come out every season). I've made a test garment from muslin and I'm almost ready to cut into my denim for the sample garment. I will use that for a concert I plan to attend, should circumstances allow.
The fabrics this season are so inspiring. I'm afraid I'm going to collect several for my personal collection, but I have to give all of you customers a fair shot first! For actual samples of the fabrics, avail yourself of our sample set. More than 60 fabrics, with generous 3x3 and 7x7 "feeler" samples!
We'd like to hear what you looking forward to sewing for the coming season! How will you use your selections from our beautiful collection?
