Sew it Up Grand Opening Recap and a WINNER!

We had such a great time yesterday at the grand opening for Lorene's new space at Sew it Up Studio in Hurst! The place was packed most of the day with excited customers who were buying up patterns, books, and the luscious fabric that Lorene stocks in the shop. Thanks to everyone who came out and made it such a successful day. The shop is just AMAZING! If you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, this shop is worth the trip. Lorene stocks all sorts of wonderful fabrics for clothing and quilting. Her wools, silks, and other specialty fabrics are to die for, not to mention all the fabulous trims, buttons, ribbon, patterns, kits, etc. You name it, she probably has it! The space is bright, roomy, and happy. I can't say enough about how lovely it is. Her employees are super helpful and friendly and the customers are great too. It was such a pleasure to meet so many people that are enthusiastic about making clothing and quilts! Below are some photos of our day:

Me and Lorene, the owner. Look! She is wearing a Diane Kimono Dress and I am in the Paige Pillowcase dress from Fashion Formula Dresses. Sorry, but the fabric my dress is made from won't be out until October (I know! Why so long?). Watch for it from Moda in a line called Simply Color.

Here are some photos of the goodies to be found in the shop. See how spacious and bright it is? You simply must visit! You can get the details on her hours and location here.

And now, what you have all been waiting for.....the winner of the new patterns (via www.random.org)......is.......
