Preparing for THE trunk show!

We are busy getting everything ready for the trunk show - from press releases to getting flyers printed and at the same time putting the finishing touches on all of our inventory that will be for sale at the show. Splendid wares has some lovely fall clothes and a boiled wool jacket that you just can't live without. In addition, she'll have what is left of her summer clothes at a discounted price. I know my daughter wore her Splendid Wares summer dress all winter last year over long sleeved shirts and jeans. The designs are so timeless, your daughters can continue to wear them next summer as well!

Firecracker Baby has some great new prints she is working with for her famous diaper bags - why did no one think of a machine washable diaper bag before?? She is also sewing up some really fantastic new handbags that can double as a smaller diaper bag with her signature pockets. keep watching the website for new designs.

O'Henry has some lovely new blankets as well that have yet to make it up on the website - there are so many beautiful fabrics out there, and so little time! New this year will be darling felted purses for little ones - from flowers to polka dots to a big smiling octopus! Watch for those on the website soon, as well. I'm also trying to finish a new pattern for a great little ragdoll who is SO easy to make and perfect for using up all those little peices of great fabric you have in your stash.

Ainsley and Oswald have joined our group this year and we are SO glad to have them! They have the coolest I spy with my little eye bags for hours of fun for your little ones, as well as the most adorable little felted animals. PERFECT for stocking stuffers. We are so glad to have Ainsley and Oswald! Check her out here:

Keep checking back for more on our amazing designers!
