Warmer weather is just around the corner and we have a darling project for you!
We've teamed Michael Miller's Fishies print with a cool and carefree Quick Sew pattern to make the perfect summertime dress for your special little Miss.
We've kitted this sweet dress complete with all those buttons and ric rac (fits sizes 1T through 4T). Unfortunately quantities are very limited so if you'd like a kit, please don't wait.
Thank you Beverly for another adorable model. It's always exciting for me to pick the fabrics and trims then send them home with you to work your magic. I'm never disappointed and always grateful to be able to tap into your willing creative skills.

It's just days before Christmas and the stress in some of our customers is palpable as they scurry about trying to get everything done.
Tuesday we had three customers standing at the door before we officially opened at ten. As we let them in from the cold they apologized and thanked us as they grabbed a quick gift card or a yard of fabric to finish last minute projects.
About mid morning a young mother came in with her three small children. As she strolled her baby through the store her two preschoolers made their way to the toys and began quietly playing together.
I overhead the five year old say to his sister, Excuse me, may I play with that toy? She happily handed it to her big brother and continued to play.
As I checked on the mom to see if there was anything I could help her with I told her what I had overheard and complemented her on her young children's kindness towards one another. She smiled and admitted she had reminded them to behave themselves before coming in the door.
A little later Barabara asked the four year old if is she was excited for Christmas and Santa Claus. She replied, Christmas isn't about Santa. Christmas is all about Jesus!
As you rush about to cross those last to dos off your list and put the last stitches on your gifts, I hope you'll stop and remember the words of one very wise little four year old.
Christmas isn't about Santa, Christmas is about Jesus.
This little doll came trick or treating at Strawberry Patches this morning.
Her mommy made her pants from one of my favorite patterns, Britches and Bloomersby Jackie Clark. You can whip them up in just an hour or so - they are super easy to construct. (Did you know our Halloween fabric is 30% off)?
One thing I've learned along the way is that babies grow way too fast. Before you know it, they're eleven with definite likes and dislikes. Today it's cute ruffled pants and tomorrow it's trendy jeans with rhinestoned pockets.
My advise is to dress them how you want when they're tiny, because before you know it they will have
As one retailer to another I just want to say you rock reinventing yourself like that. I used to think your colorful quilted bags were just for grammies, but you have totally changed your marketing. Now eleven year old girls think you are like so cool and now, so do I.
Rock on Vera, rock on!

PS: For the love of Pete, can somebody please tell me what has happened to my baby girl?
