Vintage Vogue Patterns

Vogue Patterns, the magazine, has featured some of the vintage Vogue patterns in the last couple of issues. Again readers are saying, "Where can we find them as they are out of print?" Well we still have a small supply of some of the Vintage Vogue reprints at our store. The whole reason we started this store in the first place was to help other sewers find out of print and hard to find patterns. Currently we have around 7500 patterns listed with another 4-5,000 more waiting in the wings to scan, list and post to our store. Stop on in and visit us and bookmark us so that you can find us again. Moonwishes Sewing and Crafts.

The Purple Hat

The Purple Hat is a great machine embroidery design site. Not only do they feature a lot of In the Hoop designs, they are very generous with freebies to test their designs and digitizing process. Many of their designs are for the younger set although currently they are featuring some great In the Hoop purses. They are also having a freebie treasure hunt of alphabet designs that would be perfect for a child's quilt or garments. Visit every week to see what is new. Click here to see The Purple Hat.

Judaica Jewish Machine Embroidery Designs

Over the years, I have noticed that some faiths are not well represented with machine embroidery designs and the Jewish faith is one of them. You can always find Christmas designs all over, but very few Jewish designs. Sew Terrific has just released some great redwork Judaica designs. Check them out here!

Autumn Leaves Embroidery Design

This weekend only (through October 9, 2011) Embroidery Library is giving away a series of Autumn Branches and leaves that would look great on any fall item you want to decorate. The designs come in different sizes. As usual with Embroidery Library, the designs won't disappear after this weekend, but you will have to pay for them later so this is a good time to get them now while they are free.

Freeman Process Services

What in the world does Freeman Process Service have to do with sewing? Absolutely nothing, but what kind of mother would I be if I didn't help promote my son's business? Ron lives in the Columbus, Ohio area with his lovely wife and is happy to help you out in your process servicing needs, especially those lawyers and legal types in other states that aren't hooked in with a process server for the State of Ohio. Get to know more about Ron and his strangely funky views on life at his blog: I Trust Ron Freeman.

I have found that sewing a little bit at a time is great therapy for newly revised knees, but sitting in front of computers isn't the most comfortable thing, so I'm looking forward greatly to being able to do both activities without pain. Tomorrow is exactly 3 weeks since surgery, the bruising is fading and I can finally get my leg in the car without help--at least that is progress. Oh to be free to sew again!

Happy October!

If you haven't done so already, time to pick up your free October machine embroidery designs from Embroidery Library.  While there, you will find a cupcake/ribbon design to honor October Breast Cancer Awareness month. The great thin is, if you need a different ribbon color, it is easy to substitute it into the cupcake. Don't know for sure what color or ribbon you need for your particular awareness ribbon? Embroidery Library's has a project page with a HUGE list of different ribbon colors. Just click here to see all the different ones.

I love Embroidery Library, not only for their generosity, but also for great designs, very usable color change sheets that you can also download as a PDF format. They are everything great in what you want from a machine embroidery site. Absolutely no affiliation with them other than a very pleased customer!
