  1. I have watched this challenge unfold, marveling at both the remarkable talents of the participants and at the extraordinary investment of time and money they have made in your promotion. I kept anticipating that the grand prizes that awaited these women would respectfully acknowledge that investment, but I am disappointed to see that they do not, in my opinion, do so.

  2. We appreciate each and every one of our viewers out there watching the contest unfold and supporting all competing. Being that this was the first time we had a contest to this length, we learned a lot, and learned it along the way. We are grateful to have 10 contestants (and I'm sure it could have been more!) take time out of their regular sewing lives to compete in a fun challenge. I'm sure our winners will be grateful for the prizes they have received. Being a small business we can only offer so much without asking for sponsors from other companies. We felt as though this was more than enough for someone to receive. Thanks for your input and if we decide to do another competition will take not only yours, but other comments and suggestions into consideration.

My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black. She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race”.

My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "all lives ma…

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Time Blues

Hello again and happy July!  In April, I started sewing a work wardrobe in red and black, and I decided to expand that work wardrobe to include blue and white.  I just love the combination of blue and white especially in the summer!  For my work wardrobe, I want fabrics that do not wrinkle easily, can be laundered, and can mix and match with other fabrics.   I ordered several coordinating fabrics- a white ponte, a blue chiffon print, a blue geometric crepe de chine, and a blue double weave suiting.  Most of these are still available as I write this, but are in the 60-70% off categories, so if you like any, I would order soon!
