Greetings from your friends at Sew Fabulous
|Happy April! I can't believe March flew by so fast. Besides having our 2nd Anniversary celebration from March 1-25, we had a lot going on including an in-house retreat that was tremendous fun! Now I'm in Nashville at the SVP (Singer, Viking, Pfaff) Headquarters learning all about these beautiful machines. I'm also going to bring home with me the amazing DITTO Pattern Projector system. If you've ever made a garment from a paper pattern, you know how challenging it can be to 1) Cut the fabric using a paper pattern, 2) Achieve the perfect fit. "Projector Sewing" is the first true innovation in patterns since 1860. Stop in and check it out later in April.
|AURIFIL: Are you a fan of Aurifil Cotton thread? Many of us are so I decided to expand our line of Aurifil threads to include an amazing 126 beautiful colors. We're still waiting for delivery of the cabinet; the threads will be loaded in it as soon as it arrives.
VILLA ROSA DESIGNS: These little one-card patterns are simple and fun. They make up so quickly and easily! Most are great for beginners.
