Ambassador of Fabric

I’ve given myself the unofficial title of Ambassador of Fabric. I love fabric with  my whole heart. And I feel compelled to share this love with others. My friends have other, less flattering terms for it. Fabric pusher is probably the nicest. 😉 Confession: Years before I worked for Moda. I decoded their file-naming system […]

Bright and Bold

Today I am celebrating getting my sewing machine back from servicing (in only 2 hours!) with a new stack of beautiful solids.

Hooray! Tara is a great teacher and I had serious Juki-envy while watching her sew,  I need a Juki to come live in […]

Retro Whimsy Bella Solids

Moda Fabrics has a series of free patterns designed for solids called the 12-Pack. I’m working on a pattern from the new set using the lovely stack of Bella Solids above. I like to name my fabric stacks because I’m a nerd like that so this one is called Retro Whimsy. The colors are sort of […]
