Winner of the Sew-Ichigo Contest - Jennie P!

It's time to announce the winner of our Sew-Ichigo pattern contest.

Congratulations, Jennie P., who wrote an entire list of gadgets that she loves in her kitchen.  I'm guessing Jennie is a pretty good cook in addition to quilting.

Jennie will receive her own copy of Sew-Ichigo's Kitchen Classics.  Thanks for playing!

If you didn't win, check out the sale they have going on right now. If you buy both the Button It and the Rainbow Rack of Spools together, they are only $9 (normally $5.50 each). 

Don't forget to take pictures of these and any other projects you make to share in your new Seamed UP sewing room just as soon as the makeover is done.  We can't wait to see!


Makeover - UPDATED (x2)

It's been a little too quiet around here lately and you know what that means - we're up to something!

There's so much going on "behind the seams" that I thought I'd pop over to the blog to give you all a sneak peek.  Shhh...don't tell Brye and Allison!  

First, Brye is busy as ever updating the site to Drupal 7.  (If that doesn't mean anything to you, don't worry!  It has nothing to do with quilting or sewing.)  These code updates should fix most of our bugs list and keep the site running more smoothly.   

Next, Allison is getting bolts of new fabric ready to upload to our already bursting-at-the-seams catalog as soon as Brye gives the thumbs UP.  You'll be able to stash all the latest prints to your streamlined sewing room.

Last, we've contracted with graphics designer Palmer Davis, who also designed the Martingale site, to give us a makeover.  I grabbed a snapshot of it for you!

What do you think?  We are hopeful that these updates will all be live this month.  Can't wait!


***edited to add***

Hey everyone - this is Allison.  We are currently having some pretty severe issues with the CURRENT website. The 'Sewing Room' is taking people to an error page. We have been in close contact with our server and no one seems to be able to determine (ie fix it, darn it!) what the issue is...

However; we are closer everyday to the launch of the re-designed (from the ground UP) site and, thankfully, it works as designed!


The site is now down while the makeover is installed.  Hang in there!  We will let you know when the site is back up and ready for you to check it out.  Thanks for your patience and for sticking with us.
