The Fabric Maverick says... Happy New Year!

January 8, 2009

It is never too late to say Happy New Year unless it is the Fouth of July! I know that some of you have made resolutions and have already broken them. I have decided to make only one resolution which is to learn to say "No" in a polite but positive way.  This may seem a strange resolution bur how many times are you asked to mend somthing or hem something or make something for family or friends when they know you know how to sew? I say it is time to teach them the basics of sewing. Anyone, male ore female, should be able to sew on a button! With that thought in mind, Melanie is going to try to come up with some great beginner basics series. I hope this is something you will like.

This month we will also introduce "The Tool Lady". She will be reviewing new notions and giving her  thumbs up or thumbs down on new notions. I know I like to know how to use some of these great items. Using the right tool sometimes will make or break a project.

If yoy have not noticed, we have added ready made drapery panels to our already great line-up of products. I was lucky enough to be around in the merchandising area while they were photographing these panels. They are absolutely beautiful and available in several designs. You will also notice that on many of the pictures you can click on a pattern design closeup. This will give a very accurate feel for what the design looks like.

Stay with us and you will see many innovative things happening at Fabric.com this year!

Hey Mav!

I'm looking forward to the beginner series that Melanie will be holding as I think many people are interested in sewing, but don't know where to begin. Also, starting with smaller projects (with some fine guidance from Melanie) could give people the confidence they need to work on more projects themselves and bigger ones too!
