New Fabrics and a Giveaway

We have just received some of Anna Maria Horner's new line Innocent Crush.
These velveteens are crying out to become a cozy fall skirt, or a couple of soft pillows for you couch, can you hear them?
Also, we have some new colorways of Anna Maria's Square Dance. The past incarnations of this fabric were printed on a textured, dobby fabric, this time around the print is on untextured voile.

To celebrate this great influx of Anna Maria's fabrics, we're giving two lucky readers a copy of one of Anna Maria's Books - Handmade Beginnings or Seams to Me.
This giveaway is open to Twin Cities residents only.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment here, and I'll randomly choose the winners next Friday, November 26th.

Tell us what you're sewing, tell us about your stash, let us know how you feel about the recent snowfall.

Happy Sewing, and best of luck!

Best of Treadle Flickr Group

You guys have been coming through big-time with some beautiful sewing on the Treadle Yard Goods flickr group and I have a few to share here.

First, we have this lovely ensemble from Julia at minecreations.
She made the Eclair Dress from Colette Patterns, and it is just beautiful.

As a bonus, she had enough silk left over to make a matching tie for her fiance!

As we are nearly half-way through November, it's also a good time to talk about holiday sewing.
We have a fine example here - Jenna made this advent calendar out of wool felt.
This looks like a great way to use up scraps hanging around the house!

We do so love to see what you're sewing!
Head over to flickr and share your photos too!
