Ashley, my daughter, who made the cute little baby dress for her friend has joined Pattern Review and written her first review. She also had hoped to enter her little dress in the Sewing for Children Contest but alas she found that she needed to sign up before the contest began. She was heartbroken. If you are a member of Pattern Review could you take the time to check out her review and leave her a nice comment. It would mean the world to her and perhaps keep her interest level up in sewing. If you are not a member of Pattern Review what are you waiting for ?! Great site with a wealthy of information. Sign up today!
You may or may not know that Martha Stewart is hosting an contest called “Martha Stewart American Made”. This contest is focusing on American made products, ranging from craft, design, food, garden, style and technology. Colette Patterns is an Oregon based small independent pattern company, and has made their way into the contest and needs your vote. If you have never sewn a Colette pattern do yourself a favor and make the plunge. They are well designed, instructions are out of this world, they have a great tutorial section on their site for help and if you can’t find help there head over to their blog, Coletterie.Com. Everyone is willing to help and are so informative. They deserve this win, at least in my opinion!
