I'm very happy to see nine prints from the Khristian A. Howell's line Bryant Park for Anthology in the store. There are some beautiful, painterly florals, geometrics and gorgeous palettes. Spring, this town is coming for you.
We are all back from a couple of days away sewing (!) new samples for the store and working on some personal projects. Thanks for your patience! April put together a sweet, embelished tote using some of the Bryan Park prints (above, in progress). A couple of us even borrowed some fancy Berninas from MD to familiarize ourselves with their awesomeness.
Other Great Things:
**Modern Domestic has some big news to share-- they have become a full-fledged Bernina Dealership. They have made room for all Bernina models (including sergers) on the floor and the lower classroom is now outfitted with beautiful Aurora 440QEs.
*We are celebrating Fat Tuesday with a Fat Quarter Sale! They will all be marked down from 2.75 to 2.50 next Tuesday, March 8th through Friday. I will be stocking up.
*There is a fantastic Seam Finishing Technique round-up over at Colette Patterns. They have been publishing detailed how-tos this month that make me want to be a better sewist.
*Karen put together a fantastic post on sewing with knits (embellishing, finishing, and construction techniques) over at Patterns by Figgy's. I have been back to this post several times for inspiration and instruction.
