A Giveaway : :
You all know that Anna Maria Horner is my most favorite fabric designer. Her Good Folks line and my wonderful husband Kevin are truly the reason I began to finally sew. Kevin had surprised me with a sewing machine for our 5 year Wedding Anniversary (almost 5 years ago). Actually, he really surprised me since I had never asked for or even mentioned wanting one. It's a really fancy Husqvarna Viking that sews beautifully with lots of stitch options, all digital and even will do embroidery (which I have yet to try.) He bought it refurbished at a Singer store in a town nearby, putting down $20 here and $10 there until he was ready to bring it home to me. When he did, I was thrilled! But quickly became overwhelmed by how different it was than my Great Grandmother's Singer. So it just sat there as three, yes three, more years passed by. Then one day I stumbled upon Anna Maria's blog and saw Good Folks and the rest is history!
I am so grateful for Anna's fabrics and constant inspiration! And so very grateful for my husband Kevin, who knew how much this machine would change and add to my life, even before I did!
Here is just some of what I've stitched up with her fabrics, on my much-loved machine this last year and a half that I've been sewing. Pillows, dolls, clothing, blankets, recovered chairs, deskmats, pin cushions, aprons, and curtains, oh my!
