It’s been a while since we’ve had a sale in the shop! I hope you enjoy browsing around with a little discount in your pocket! Use code MD20 at the time of checkout to get the discount. And while it’s a national Holiday here in the USA, the discount applies worldwide:)
There are so many new prints in the shop, and it’s been so delightful to see so many responding so well to the new collections. There are still a couple more fabric bundles left, so be sure to check that out as well!
Happy Memorial Day!
This month, Parent & Child Magazine asked if I’d illustrated an article on mindfullness in kids. It’s a great article that you can read online here. I’m a huge believer in teaching children meditation and giving children the tools they need to control their bodies and minds in order to be happy. So, naturally, I was thrilled! My kids saw the magazine on the table before I could show them my feature, and Addie ran up to me and said, “Mom! Great article! I saw your drawings, and it looks great!” I love that I get to share my art with them, and that it speaks to their level of understanding.
Have a lovely week! We are busy in the studio with tons of orders, and getting ready for BYU Women’s Conference this week. Will any of you be there? We have a booth at the BYU Bookstore….more on that later! xo sarah
So, after a bit of thought, I’m not going to be offering fabric bundles in the shop after this run. It was super fun to have them with the prints as a bundle, but with with the amount of illustration work I have (and mommy work) I’ve decided that cutting the folding fabric isn’t something I want to keep up. I wanted to offer these so you had a decor package that you could design around, and get directly. So, if you were considering buying these, we only have a few left.
You can see the bundle here in the shop.
In less than 2 weeks, I’ll be a keynote speaker at my first ever sewing conference. I’ve spoken to sewers before, but never for a 90 minute presentation. And I’m so excited! (And nervous…but who wouldn’t be!)
Quilt Bliss is taking place in Timber Moose Lodge (biggest private log cabin in the USA) and is sure to be an amazing retreat with plenty of inspiration, R&R and rejuvenation!
Individual classes are sold out, but day passes are still available.
Will you be attending Quilt Bliss? I’d love to know if you are! I’ll be sure to share all about it when it’s through!
See you there! xoxo
Today’s giveaway is from Quilt Sandwich, and I couldn’t be more excited for you!
Quilt Sandwich Fabrics is two sisters, Kris and Becca, who love to sew and quilt. We love so many fabrics that we decided starting a shop was the best way to see a lot of them! We both felt that the fabric industry was something we wanted to be a part of because it’s creative and exciting – there are so many great ideas online, new collections coming out all the time, and tons of people we admire (some of our favorite fabric designers are Anna Maria Horner, Kaffe Fassett, Tula Pink, Amy Butler, Denyse Schmidt and Heather Ross). We wanted to do something that we feel passionate about so we started our shop in 2009 on Etsy and have just recently moved to our own website, which we are really excited about. We hope that our new website allows us to offer a better selection of fabrics and also some new products – we have some beautiful ribbons by our favorite fabric designers, and we are going to be adding patterns and kits soon. We love choosing new fabrics for our shop and luckily we tend to like the same things, so buying is a lot of fun. We think we have a good eye for fun, eye-catching fabric and we have a fun sense of humor that we bring to our shop.
WHAT THEY ARE GIVING AWAY:
QUILT SANDWICH is giving away 6 quarter yard cuts of fabric to go with this LOTS OF DOTS quilt pattern (by Green Bee Patterns)
