Today we feel lucky to be a part of the “I Sew For Fun” Blog Hop.
“I Sew For Fun” is a new book written by Nancy Zieman. It was written with her granddaughters Avery, Luella, and Adeline in mind.
The whole idea of the book is teaching a love for sewing by working together as partners and having FUN! The book is written for the mother, grandmother, aunt, etc. to help walk them through how to create terrific projects that are perfect for little hands and young minds.
The projects in the book teach the basics of sewing while creating fun items that those sewing them up are sure to love.
Projects like this cape:
And this darling owl:
But Nancy thought of everything so not only did she write a book but she created an entire line of sewing notions to go along with it.
Everything from a seam guide to a magnetic pin caddy…and they are all done up in a fresh mint and purple color scheme. (For more information about the notions you can click HERE.)
She also developed an entire line embroidery designs that are perfect for little ones to work with.
And all the details about these designs can be found HERE.
Then last but not least…she wrote a story book to read to your budding seamstress…
The cute illustrations and soft color palette make the book just as sweet to look at as it is to read.
You know, I said at the beginning that we feel lucky to be a part of this blog hop and we really do.
We met Nancy for the first time several years ago and she was nothing but kind and gracious at every meeting. She took time to sit down with us, give us advice, treat us with kindness, and…remember our names.
We have been blessed to listen to her speak on many occasions and learn from her experience not only with sewing but with life…and that has been a blessing indeed.
When we learned of Nancy’s passing Elizabeth and I were just picking up our new line of fabric we designed for Riley Blake Designs called “Shine Bright“. The line was inspired by our girls…with all the prints created to remind them that they are brilliant and to let their lights shine.
With that in mind we have put together a package to send to one lucky reader…a collection of “I Sew” notions along with a fat quarter bundle of our “Shine Bright” fabric. We think it makes a perfect pairing.
To enter to win this package all you need to do is leave a comment telling us either who shared their light with you and taught you how to sew or who you would like to share your love of sewing with.
And thank you Nancy for sharing your light with all of us…
