We’re highlighting our playful and spring-like Under the Sea collection this week (and having a SALE!), so we got some of our dear friends together for a photoshoot last weekend. Can I just say how grateful I am for such generous (and photogenic) friends? We just let the kids run in an open space near our house, and they were instantly adorable.

I know it doesn’t feel like spring everywhere yet, but it’s coming! Spring has definitely sprung here, and Saturday was a perfect day for running around in some fresh organic cotton digs. In this photo, we’re showing our Ella Dress on the littlest, our Boy’s Skater Shirt, the fabulous Goodship Dress by One Girl Circus, and our Super Simple Skirt in Under the Sea. I also tried out Olive Ann’s Geo Dress Pattern, shown below, which was fun and easy to sew, and is a great way to show a few different prints that go well together (like our Octopus Party, Kelp Forest and Scallop!)

I know I’ve mentioned my favorite tree before – this beautiful old Live Oak in the open space where I hike in the mornings – and it was the gorgeous backdrop to many of these photos. It’s branches are thick and worn, bowing down to rest on the ground before swooping back up again, which, of course, makes it ideal for climbing.

Our Go Fish print works perfectly with our On the Go Dress pattern, shown above. We’re also working on a new sewing pattern, the saucy two-tiered ruche skirt shown below in Octopus Party and Scallop. It’s great for showing off coordinating prints, and looks good with boots or spring sandals. What do you think?

As promised on Tuesday, today I’m sharing photos of our new Raaga organic knit fabrics which will be coming out in late fall. This collection features four of our most popular Raaga designs, printed on 100% organic cotton jersey knit. We’ve shown it here used on our new Ashland A-line skirt pattern for kids (we’ll have an adult version too, with a culotte option!). The tank top and shrug are from the book Sewing Clothes Kids Love. Stay tuned for more cute knit projects, coming soon!

Whew, what a flurry the last couple of months have been! We exhibited at our 5th Quilt Market two weeks ago, and the dust is just now settling. Every time we start the ramp-up to market it seems like such a huge project – samples to sew, quilts to make, a booth to design and build, props to buy, catalogs to compile order forms to order – but once we get there it’s always so fun, and so worth the work. It’s a great feeling to be among so many like-minded fabric lovers, and get to meet many of my on-line customers in person and see industry friends. Plus, there’s so much creativity and inspiration there! This show was busy, and the down-side of that is that I only had about 25 minutes at the end of the day on Sunday to walk the show (not nearly enough, btw), so this time I don’t have photos of the overall show, but I will share some images of what we introduced there.

 

Here are some photos of our booth from the show…
