Long time no post!

It's been waaaay too long since my last post but I've got a good excuse! I was lucky enough to get away to Victoria, BC for the long weekend with my honey so that kept me away from all virtual communication for a good six days. A very nice break, let me tell ya! I found some awesome shop owners who share my love of handmade and vintage along with some fantastic new duds to add to my already bursting wardrobe. But enough of my bragging.... let's get down to business!

This past Saturday I was selling at the spring installment of The Crafty Minions Handmade and Vintage Sale at Aqua Books and it was another great day with great people. I got to catch up with some of my consignors and loaded up on some fresh stock from Head in the Oven aprons and Marathon 1981's kookie monsters.

And I made a couple new connections with some other local designers and crafters who I might start carrying, too so stay tuned for some new goodies on the shelves at Sew Dandee!

I've also been busy coming up with some new designs inspired by a customer's request for a fabric lunch bag. Here's what I've come up with so far and I've got more fabrics and sizes cut out that I plan to put together this week. As per usual, I can make a custom lunch bag for you if you like! You can even choose from my pile of super fun fabrics for your pocket/panel on the front! Lunch has never been so fun!

I found some inspiration while in Victoria and made up some elastic belts with fun vinyl scrap 'buckles'. You just pull them on and TAH DAH, you've got an adorable accessory that gives you a waistline!

Oh and I almost forgot! I found a new line of shirts from Thread Pit that are good for a giggle. And you know how I love a good giggle. ;)

And one more thing! For the month of June I'll be having a draw to win one of the handmade creations from here at Sew Dandee! All you need to do is spend $20 or more and you can get your name in the draw for that week. I'll be having a prize once a week every week for the whole month in celebration of FIVE YEARS at 105 Osborne St. So, get your butt on down here, spend a bit on some awesome handmade or gently worn goodness and be entered to win MORE handmade goodness! It all starts tomorrow! I hope to see you all soon!

And don't forget to 'like' the NEW Sew Dandee page on Facebook! I'd LOVE your like!

New Facebook Page!

As some of you may already know, Facebook has decided (yet again) to make some changes to the Group pages. So, I've had to make up a new page for Sew Dandee. If you would be so kind, I'd love for you to 'like' the new Sew Dandee page! But only if you really, truly DO like Sew Dandee. ;)

On another crafty note, the next Crafty Minions Handmade and Vintage Sale is just around the corner! Saturday May 28th from 11am to 5pm at Aqua Books downtown. Make an afternoon of it and bring some friends or family. Check out the book store, have some tasty eats at Eat! Bistro and then head upstairs from some super awesome handmade wares of all kinds and some of the coolest vintage finds around! I hope to see you all there!

New cards!

The Best of Friends Gift Shop at the Millenium Library downtown is carrying some of my stuff now so go check it out if you're in the area! I'm sending these booky cards their way next week.

And I made up a few new Winnipeggy cards today, too!

Don't forget it's Mother's Day this Sunday!!! Come down to Sew Dandee and get your #1 Mom a card that's sure to make her giggle and maybe a little gift to show her just how awesome she is.
