So I am falling in love with the form and shape of chairs. How many times have you seen a chair at a yard sale or the thrift store that has the best shape, but the Ugliest Fabric Known to Man on it? Just a bit of new fabric which inspires you and you have a new treasure, a bit of beauty and function to spiff up your room.

Meet Josephine and Beatrice. They will be accompanying me to the show this weekend. Josephine sports the Uptown Coat, ready for our crisp fall weather. Beatrice’s outfit is almost ready…..You’ll have to come to the show to see what I created for her.
It seems since my daughter announced her engagement in June, I have barely taken a breath. Finishing up our homeschooling year, planning Ana’s wedding (at our house!), starting school again…..
As soon as the bride and groom left to start their new life, I hit the ground running getting ready for Ruffles and Rust–and it’s almost here! I will have some very fun stuff to pretty your home for the holidays. But what I want people to be able to do when they visit my booth is to think about what is possible when hiring a custom seamstress. (Or as I saw it on an Amy Butler pattern…”sewist”.) What about that well-loved armchair that needs a new cover that is made to order? What about a special gift for a baby or bridal shower, or Christmas? Maybe a new coat or skirt for the holidays? There are so many patterns and ideas out there to choose from. I have a list of resources that I love to use, online and local. I have a 10% off coupon waiting for you when you stop by. If you can’t make the show, but would like to talk about a project you have, comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the next part of my adventure….I will be hosting a booth at this fabulous show coming up in 3 weeks. Ruffles are the order of the day—-many ways to pretty up you and your home for the holidays. Have a fun day out with your friends, get inspired, do some Christmas shopping, order a custom project…… Next blog will have some pics to get you thinking that you really can’t miss this fun event!
