I was thrilled when my friend Allison (over here at Within A Quarter Inch) let me know her local quilt shop had been having a contest with my book! At Fran's Sewing Circle (in Wilmington, North Carolina at 5751 Oleander Dr., Unit 5, if you are lucky enough to live nearby) the employees made their choice of a skirt from the book (17 skirts to chose from, plus maternity!) and then held a contest where the customers guessed which employee made each skirt. Such a cute idea, especially in a place where customers and employees become friends (it's like Cheers but with fabric instead of beer).
Here is a view of all the skirts hanging together (I love the clothes line idea too).
Here is a close-up. I'm so thrilled to see they took the leap to try different things. Look at how great these look!
More! Such cute fabrics and you can never go wrong with a solid black skirt (ever). It's a wardrobe staple.
And more! Seriously, these are so darling and the work looks impeccable.
Such a great idea for a store (or for a sewing circle). A huge thank you to the folks at Fran's Sewing Circle for including my book in their fun! If you have a shop and have made any projects from my book please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org)! I'd love to let people know!
