Fall 2008 at SBDF

We’ve had a busy summer and I’ve been lax about posting to the blog.  So much to say…so little time!!

We have a fabulous fall season coming up so we hope you all gear up your your machines  and your creativity and and get ready to sew!  I’ll be talking about individual fabrics as I can.  In the meantime, subscribers are already receiving their third mailer of the Autumn season.  If you don’t subscribe, we post fabrics that are still in stock to the web store about 2 weeks after we mail to subscribers.  You can follow along there.

Speaking of the web store.  We are in the process of moving to a new store front.  This will take some time and perhaps a little patience on the part of our customers, but when all is said and done, we believe the store will be a better place to shop!  We’ll keep you updated as we progress and if you have any problems don’t hesitate to contact us.

You’ll want to watch the Savvy Sewer Salon for a new video sew along hosted by Jennifer Stern of J Stern Designs.  You can see the pattern she’ll use at her web site.  The sewalong will encompass beginner techniques and Jennifer’s suggestions for finishing touches to her simple, wearable, fashionable tee!  She’ll be available for questions through the Salon as you watch the video and make your own.  Fun for any level of sewist!

We have some wonderful Boutique fabrics coming in the next few weeks.  Watch this blog and the web store for up to date info on luxurious offerings that are rare in today’s marketplace. 

We’re looking forward to a visit from Pattern Review members on September 20th.  It’s always good to have our first group visit early in the season –it forces us to clean up our act in the Rem room!!!  We’ll be cleaning, sorting, re-pricing and generally sprucing things up for PR.  If you aren’t familiar with Pattern Review…check it out. 

As you can see we have a very busy fall.  This is our crunch season because the advent of the  holidays compresses our mailing schedule.  Be on the lookout for rich harvest colors of deep pumpkin, squash, melon and bright fern green; trendy blue teal and cranberry pink; classic black and elegant ivory in every fabrication we could find; and purples from magenta to blue violet!! Watch for lots of mailers (at least one per month) and act quickly if you want to get first dibs on the great fabrics!
