We're turning the blog over to Denita from
Hattie Lu Handmade this week - let's see what she's up to:
Greetings, fellow sewists! I am sooo excited to announce that today kicks off the first blog tour for Mabel Madison. We're celebrating fine fabrics for modern sewing and Valentine's Day.
We've asked 8 creative, stitchin' mamas to showcase their personal style for Valentine's Day. We want you to be inspired to create your special look. You will be surprised by what these ladies have sewn up for us, and I can't wait to share!
Why a blog tour? We were surprised that some had never heard of Mabel Madison. We carry high-quality imported cotton poplins, jersey knits, corduroys, and more. Yes, they’re more expensive than what you’ll find at the big box stores, but they’re also wider (poplins run 60-ish inches as opposed to 44 or 45), show off a huge range of colors and prints, sew up beautifully, and will wash over and over again, still maintaining the attributes that made them so wonderful in the first place. It’s not unusual for an item of clothing made from Euro fabric to be worn and outgrown by two or more family members, and still be passed on to another user (or two, or three… you get the picture). We want you love Euro fabrics as much as we do! We've added some apparel fabrics and character prints to our stock, too. They're high-quality fabrics that sew up well and look great!
On each of the next nine days, I'll give you a teaser of the featured item along with a link to the full post on their blog. My hope is that you'll find lots of inspiration. Aaaaaaaaand...(drum roll please)....get ready to be "wowed." I'll see you back here tomorrow!
Be sure to check out all the awesome series participants to get lots of inspiration!
