This is Sandi Henderson of Portabellopixie. And before you call the blog police, Kathy has asked me to fill in today and guest write. But I'm going to pretend she doesn't know about it because it's more fun that way. ;)
Let's see, so I am supposed to talk about me. Well, in case you aren't bored to your gourd from reading about me on my blog, then here is the scoop! I am a lisenced designer for Michael Miller Fabrics. My first line, Ginger Blossom is just about to hit stores. In the next few weeks everyone will be able to play with it!
Working with Kathy and everyone at Michael Miller has been so wonderfully rewarding that we decided to start right into a second line after the artwork for Ginger Blossom was completed. That second line will debut in May and will be in stores shortly after that. So there will be lots to play with in the next little bit!
My background is in children's clothing design, and along with the second line of fabric, we will be releasing our first line of sewing patterns. The line consists of 4 patterns for boutique children's clothing. What is boutique clothing? To me it means super cute and very well contructed, while still being wearable! Here is a sneak peek of one of the patterns to be released this May at Quilt Market. These patterns will go beyond a regular "how to" in that each one will have an inspiration section that will really show how to make the most of the pattern. Dozens of beautiful photography to dazzle and delight. Crafting and sewing are again becoming cool and sewing for children is a huge part of that!
Let's see, before I go, how about I give away some fabric? We had a little giveaway over in my land recently and only one person got to win, so I'll spread a little textile love over here too. Leave a comment and TWO (whoa) people will win a fat quarter of each print from Ginger Blossom. From me to you. Just don't tell Kathy I hijacked her blog or we won't get to do this again. shhhh.. muahh ha ha (You should totally give the wicked laugh a try, it's good for the sould every now and then.)
