Sew South

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 2.06.01 PM

The Sew South Modern Sewing Retreat starts today in Charlotte, NC! If you’re not familiar, the Southern weekend retreat was founded and is produced by Jennifer Mathis of Ellison Lane. It is a boutique, modern sewing retreat where attendees will sew, create, learn, and connect with other passionate sewists. Its small size (50 attendees + teachers) is designed to help make connections and become inspired on a personal level. [text taken from sewsouth.com]

It is in its second year and we are a proud 2-year sponsor! We won’t be there to say hello in person, but if you’ll be in attendance, you’ll have little Pellon® sightings all weekend… from the handy samples in your gift bags to the interfacing & batting in your classes!

Just because we’re SO excited, we’re hosting an additional giveaways for all attendees. The giveaway will run via Instagram and details can be seen via our account today. If you’re not already following us, you may have missed the announcement, so take a peek below, make sure to follow us, and then submit a photo before midnight on Monday! We want to see what you’re making!!

For those not able to attend, don’t worry! We’ll be hosting another giveaway here on the blog soon:).

Are You City Savvy?

We want to know… are you City Savvy? If you’re not already, you should be!! Big-City Bags Savvy, that is. ;)

BigCityBagsCover

Big-City Bags (available through Martingale) is the very first book release by designer Sara Lawson and we’ve been looking forward to it all year! Sara is one of Pellon®’s beloved designers and she was one of the very first to sign on for the Pellon® Project Designer program. Since then, she has contributed over 10 unique projects, most of which are fabulously stylin’ handbags.

[The Lindsay Tote & The Urban Jungle Bag]

Sara has a great eye and a keen sense of style and her patterns speak to a large audience of sewists. It’s been incredible to follow her story. We are dedicated readers of her blog and did a little happy dance when she released her first commercial pattern. You can imagine, then, how excited we were for the release of this book. We love seeing people in our industry succeed, but it’s particularly exciting when that someone is as talented and all around fabulous as Sara is. We adore her and know that she deserves all of the success that comes her way.

pixiehexiewallet Caliticlutch[The Pixie Hexi Wallet & The Caliti Clutch]

Is it possible that we’re a little biased? Perhaps. But it’s hard not to be when you consider that there are 4 full pages dedicated to Pellon® interfacing — what to use, how to use it in bag construction, and a detailed description of Sara’s go-to products. Sara has been educating readers on the different uses for and benefits of interfacing on her blog for a while now and it’s safe to say she’s become a go-to on the subject in our industry. In addition featuring a section on interfacing, Big-City Bags gives instructions for how to create 12 super-stylish bags.

Martingale has a great post today that features Sara talking all about the process of putting together her initial book proposal AND a whole video dedicated to interfacing tips!! The video was filmed at Fall Market in Houston and serves as a fabulous introduction to Sara’s book.

After you’ve learned all about Sara and Pellon® interfacing you’ll definitely want to enter-to-win a fabulous Pellon® prize pack. We worked with Martingale on this one are excited to offer all the products needed to complete one of our book favorites, the Miss Independent Bag.

Miss-Independent-bag

Laptop-case

The Miss Independent bag is a laptop bag that looks like a high-end handbag. There’s room for all of your day-to-day items, along with a removable zip-top laptop sleeve. The prize package includes Pellon® SF101 Shape-Flex®, Pellon® TP971F Fusible Thermolam® Plus, and Pellon® 520 Deco-Fuse™. So, don’t forget to head on over to Martingale!!

Now… for our very own GIVEAWAY!!
Since we love giveaways, we thought it only fitting that we feature one here as well. Martingale was kind enough to offer a copy of Big-City Bags to one of our readers. One lucky winner will get either a print or an e-copy of Sara’s book. To enter-to-win, head on over to Sara’s profile page on our website to check out all of her designs for Pellon®, then come back here and in the comments, tell us which one of her bags you’d most like to make. We’ll select one winner using our pal random.org one week from today.

Good luck & Happy Sewing!!

UPDATE — December 3, 2013 @ 5:45pm THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED

Congratulations to our winner, commenter #106 Joan!! Joan — we sent you an email:). Thank you to all who entered. If you’re interested in purchasing a copy of Sara’s book, head on over to Martingale!

Sew South Giveaway

We were incredibly proud and honored to be one of the sponsors for the very first Sew South Modern Sewing Retreat. A weekend of classes, fabric shopping, and online friends having the chance to meet face to face, the retreat was a wild success. We provided all of the interfacing needed for the weekend’s classes and adored seeing all of the photos of the students’ creations. Founder Jennifer Mathis did a terrific job in pulling everything together and we’re hoping to see this turn into an annual event.
