Pattern Sale

Patterns are expensive, but once in  awhile JoAnn Fabrics has a great sale. You just have to watch and plan ahead a bit.

I found a great deal on patterns yesterday at the local JoAnn Fabrics store. McCalls patterns were 5 for $5, or a buck a piece.

I bought 5, and my total savings were over $87.

When I start stitching them up, I'll review them here and post any workarounds you can do to make them easier.

Now, one last question, this is for McCalls and the pattern companies... Why the heck is your selection of men's and boy's clothing patterns so stinking pathetic? Seriously, it's SUMMER WEATHER, why is there not a single pattern available from the big name companies for a pair of men's shorts with pockets. I don't even care if they're the zipper kind or elastic, but there's NOTHING. Boo... Hiss... Sewing pattern company FAIL!!!!

My New Upholstery Website

I'm building a new upholstery website, Upholstery-Girl, and would like to share a link to it.

The site is about sharing information for do-it-yourselfers, people starting their own shops, and to also promote my own professional upholstery work as I prepare to reopen my own shop.

If you're interested, I would love to hear your opinions. While I'm hoping you'll think it's awesome, I'm open to criticism, too, because it can only help me make it better.

You can leave a comment there, here, or email me at

I'll add a link to it on my upholstery page here on this site, too, when I have a bit more time.
