I've been sewing up a storm!

Check out all the hooded scarves I've been making for the store! I've got TONS now but if you still don't see one you love, bring me a sweater and/or scarf and I'll custom make you one! Always an option at Sew Dandee!

And I've been getting distracted in between making the hooded scarves with ideas for reworked sweaters. Here's a couple I came up with!

And I've also been working on some new headband/neckwarmers! I'm in LOVE with this yarn! I apologize for the creepy picture but it gets the point across that it really is a two fer one kinda design.

Oh So Cute Cuteness!

We've got a new addition to our Sew Dandee local designer family as of today! Kathy Beck of Just A Little Longer makes the most adorable girls clothing using upcycled fabrics. Come see their cuteness in person, perfect for that little girl in your life!

I also wanted to spread the word that I've decided to carry gently worn footwear again for the time being. I just HAD to take in these fantastic BRAND NEW Uggs (not at a BRAND NEW price though) and gently worn Sugar boots in addition to some super cool Vans and Cons! Come check them out!

We've got the wintery goods!

Well, Sew Dandee is now FULLY STOCKED in wintery wear and accessories! Come check out our great mitts, scarves, hats, leg warmers, arm warmers, hooded scarves, neck warmers and winter headbands and of course all the great coats and jackets!! I'm trying to find someone who makes cool ear muffs this year too so I'll be sure to keep you posted on any progess I make in my search.

And this past weekend marked the completion, installation and tear down of a project that is very dear to my heart: Knitting the Bridge! It was a HUGE success with almost enough knitting to cover the length of the bridge THREE times!! I had such a great time working on this project over that past several weeks and am so grateful to have met so many creative and awesome people. All of our work will be on display at the Manitoba Craft Museum at 183 Kennedy downtown for now but may be shipped off to another museum to be displayed. If you didn't get a chance to get down to the bridge to see our work, here's a shot that will give you an idea of it's awesomeness!

And here are a few other shots of us working it at the Sals on the bridge!

I JUST got in some new Melissa Abram hair pins, headbands and brand new sets of 4 buttons! I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner, getting her to make her adorable fabric covered items into sew-on buttons! So, now I've got sets of robots, cupcakes, kitties, mushrooms and more! Come down and check them out!

And on Friday local designer, Sarah Jonasson of The Velvet Vixen brought in some of her clothing. She uses new and recycled fabrics. Here's just a couple of her outfits!
