Sew Modern online!

Some of you may have noticed that I have some sponsors over on my sidebar now. One of them is Sew Modern, my local shop where I also teach. We are so lucky here in LA to have access to such a great shop that carries so many of the wonderful new fabrics out there. I mean c’mon now, they carry EVERY color of Kona Cotton! How many people get to see that when they walk in to a shop?? We are a lucky bunch. But now you’re lucky too because Sew Modern has just launched an online shop! Click on over and check it out – and don’t forget their sale section – it’s pretty killer…

Now it’s not every day that I go bonkers for a fabric, but now and then, some comes along that makes me feel faint. These latest arrivals at Sew Modern, Yoshiko Jinzenji’s fabrics, are some of those!

The second they showed up in the shop I snagged two yards of each. They are so unique and gorgeous.

In celebration of launching their online shop, Sew Modern is giving away a half yard set of these three beautiful, sophisticated fabrics. Leave a comment here and I’ll pick a winner on Friday.

P.S. The winner of the copy of Modern Mix was Sam. Congrats and keep an eye out for an email from me!
P.P.S. I know it’s been giveaway central over here recently. Not on purpose – just a timing thing. I promise I’ll be posting some actual sewing at some point! Ha.

    Thanks for this post. I’m moving to Culver City next month, and I keep driving by Sew Modern. I’ve been meaning to explore the store, but I usually have my pup with me, so I haven’t popped in yet. I’m thrilled to know that there’s a great sewing emporium on the Westside. I have a big quilt planned for my new place and will be sure to get my Kona fabric for the sashing there.

  • VickiT

    October 12, 2011 at 11:21 am |

    You are so lucky to have such a great shop nearby. In order for me to find a shop with fun fabrics like that I think I would have to drive into Chicago which would be a four hour round trip drive.

    I really love the white fabric and the bright yellow and red. Very cool

  • Anita

    October 12, 2011 at 3:56 pm |

    At the risk of sounding very, very old, I must point out that when I first started quilting (in the early 70s) one had to drive all over in hopes of finding a piece of 100% cotton. No internet, just sewing stores that mostly had polyester. It’s overwhelming to have so many choices now, but I’d rather be over than under-whelmed. Yes, I want to win this fabric.

    Oh great! They are so beautiful. I’m in the process of moving right now but what you say about some kona solids and a beautiful strip of one of those in a quilt. Gorgeous!!! (just like in the book cover of Modern mix)I think I’ll get a new bedcover very, very soon as soon as I settle in my new home.
