Fabric Maverick Says... Get Ready, Set, Sew!
February 26, 2008
Spring is on its way! Smell that! It is daffodils blooming. If you could put the scent of daffodils and a few drops of sunshine in a bottle, you could make a fortune selling spring to our friends in the North. Spring is a time of renewal. It is time to begin spring-cleaning. A sewer will interpret this to mean:
- It's time to have your sewing machine maintenanced
- It's time to finish winter projects or put them away for next year
- It's time to organize the sewing room
- It's time to plan your spring projects
For the apparel sewer, it is time to check out the new spring pattern books. Look for new ideas in the fashion magazines. This will be a good way to see what fabrics and colors are hot for the new season.
For the quilter, it is fun to curl up with the spring quilting magazines for new project ideas and techniques. What new fabric collections are being released?
For the Home Decorator, this is a great time to refresh your home. Pick a room that you have been thinking about redoing. If you only have a little money and little time, start small. Changing the colors of your sofa pillows and accessorizing can make a world of difference.
March will be a month of Celebrations. Easter, National Quilting Day, St. Patrick's Day are a few of the fun sewing days coming up. It is time for the young ladies to start picking fabrics for their Prom dresses. I know that Victoria has a grandson due in March. I know what she is already working on.
April is Fabric.com's anniversary month. Get ready for some great sales. Now would be the time to get fabric for your Home Decor projects.
Now is the time to Get Ready, Set, Sew.
