Yesterday I posted this picture and asked for help with finding the fabric.
http://www.appleanniefabrics.com/wools/2009. It's 96% wool and 4% lycra so I'll be able to get a very nice fit. I am so excited. The fabric has been ordered, so if by chance you want some, don't worry, I should have all I will need. By the way, the fabric, actually all of her wools are 30% off. Here's a link to her home page, http://www.appleanniefabrics.com/.
Just a little note about the sewing community. First of all, the sewing community is just the best! Just about every good thing that has happened in my life has come to me because of sewing. Name something I am involved in, and I can tell you how it was a connection I made because of a class I taught, a dress I made or a sewing group that I have been involved with that has lead to positions and experiences that have truly enriched my life.
Yesterday, I commented on The Wednesday Showcase about how much I appreciate the fact that Sue of http://sewqwk.blogspot.com/ spends so much of her time teaching young people how to sew. She sent back this note, "I do love to share my sewing with teens and tweens. I get so much satisfaction from
seeing their eyes light up and the creativity and fearlessness they have about
sewing! I have been teaching/enabling teens for almost 5 years now and while the
older ones seem to go off to other things at about 15 years old, I know one day
they will be back, like us, sewing, and hopefully sharing!" For all of you who teach, you are not just passing on a skill, you are opening doors of opportunity!
