My First Time on the Sewing Machine from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello makers,

The last few days, I’ve decided to tackle something I never thought I would try (at least by myself)... sewing on the sewing machine. As a kid, my grandma loved to sew but she never used a sewing machine, everything she ever did was by hand, and she passed those skills down to me. Growing up, she would have me sit next to her on her bed, set down a pile of socks, shirts, pants, anything with holes, and have me sew up the holes to practice. I really enjoyed that time with my grandma, it was ...

Sharon Holland's Latest Collection - Everlasting! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

 

Ever

"The story behind my new collection is definitely a love story inspired by my daughter,  Anna. She reminds me, in so many ways, of all the joys of summer. A large part of this collection celebrates her June wedding, so you'll discover several of the fabrics aptly reference marriage, but you'll also find some special memories from my childhood woven in as well.

The fabrics I chose are from the blooming and hand-drawn styled Signature Collection and from the Pure Elements: Extempore Fancy (Fabric A), White Linen (Fabric B), Venture Caravan (Fabric C), and Sporangia Plaid Dotted (Fabric D).

Natural Wonders: "Signature" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers,

Happy Monday! Hope you all enjoyed a lovely, Father's Day weekend!

I'm sure a lot of you spent it outside and there's nothing better than being in the great outdoors! (Weather permitting, of course!) Whenever I'm in a bit of a funk or need to gather some inspiration to reset my mind, I love to immerse myself in the natural world. Living here in South Florida, there's such fascinating, tropical wildlife and I always enjoy admiring it while I take my two beagles pups for a long walk, twice a day. I live ...

With her hand drawn nature elements and beautiful use of color this collection will definitely be on my cutting table all throughout summer.
