You may have seen all over the interwebs (and maybe even from Sarai Mitnick herself) but her new book, The Colette Sewing Handbook, is out and it is GORGEOUS. We’ve got copies in stock!! It is full of great information (and 5 new patterns!) with a focus on the 5 Fundmentals–Plan, Pattern, Fit, Fabric, & Finish. With beautiful photos and clear well-written chapters, this makes a great reference book for technique by working through choosing fabric, fitting adjustment, seam finishes, and more!
We couldn’t be happier about supporting Sarai in this awesome endeavor and are proud to be a sponsor of the party on Thursday November 17th to celebrate her achievement. She’s asking for RSVPs here. Join all of us for a night of crafty fun with giveaways, drinks, button and trim swaps, and more! The festivities will be held at Ford Food and Drink at starting at 8:00, 2505 SE 11th Ave at SE Division.
There’s all sorts of fun things that are going to happen during her blog tour and here’s your map. You’ll notice several friends of ours are stops along the way including Bolt, Elizabeth Hartman, and Sew Mama Sew. And it starts tomorrow!
