Here is some more great news for those of you coming along to Sew It Together in Sydney: Gillian, and her new business Sew Vintage are sponsoring Sew It Together Sydney 2011!
Gillian is another of our fabulous stay-at-home mothers who has started up a small craft-based business from home. She loves 1950s design, fabric, fashion and homewares, and loves to stock fantastic retro Michael Miller prints at Sew Vintage. Gillian enjoys a good hunt for rare and out of print fabric, and she plans to increase the range at Sew Vintage very soon, stocking some co-ordinating fabrics, ric-rac and other haberdashery.
Gillian makes lots of one-off, unique items, and loves to make custom orders. She does markets, works with kindergartens, and offers an individualised service and fast postage (and you know how much I love fast postage!).
I don’t think I have ever seen vintage patterns on sale on an online store, but you can find them here at Sew Vintage! Gillian even checks each and every pattern to make sure that every piece is included – brilliant!
If that doesn’t keep Gillian busy enough, she also designs her own patterns! Here’s Gillian’s gorgeous Gingerbread House pattern that was published in Homespun:
How sweet is that? Gillian’s also planning on designing and releasing more 1950s-style patterns this year, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.
And the exciting news for the SIT 2011 girls, is that Gillian is not only coming all the way from South Australia to join in all the SIT fun in Sydney in March, but she is also sponsoring Sew It Together with FIVE prize packs to be given away at the Saturday Crafting Session!
Each prize pack will have 4 half yards of fabric from Sew Vintage, a pattern for the Gingerbread House, some vintage style haberdashery and even some vintage patterns! Awesome prizes!
Thanks Gillian for your generous support of Sew It Together! Thanks for the fabulous prizes! We wish Sew Vintage all the best as you grow the business, and we’re looking forward to meeting you in person in March!
