Fun from the Weekend!

Happy Monday Everyone! Did you have an awesome weekend?? We sure did and we thought we would share a few highlights! So, our fearless leader and shop owner Karen O'neill was in Vegas this weekend with her hubs and spotted this awesome vintage sewing machine store! Everywhere you go these days there is MAD sewing machine love and we just can't get enough!
We have a couple vintage machines around the store and I'm pretty sure at least half the ladies that work up here at the Cabbage Rose have one (or two!) at home! We just adore the sensibility and simplicity of these older machines...they just don't MAKE things like they use to! We even have a Sew Fresh member who EXCLUSIVELY uses her hand-me-down, vintage Singer and she just loves it! And it sews quite beautifully!
Do you have a vintage machine?? Take a photo, post it on Facebook and TAG US!! We want to see more and more of these beautiful sewing machines! Oh, and don't forget to post your baby's name...we KNOW it has one! ;)

On Saturday, Caroline taught her first Staple Dress Class and just LOOK at the beautiful dresses her students created!! I am literally dying over each one of these! They all picked such gorgeous prints! Can't you see this dress getting tons of mileage in your wardrobe? I mean, I kinda want one in solid black and one in a Navy Polka Dot...maybe one from a gorgeous Kaffe Fassett fabric and then, at LEAST ONE super fancy dress created with a beautiful voile!
Caroline is teaching this class again on September 7th so SIGN UP NOW to reserve your spot! You could TOTALLY make this dress wearable all Fall and Winter by using a print that will look awesome with layering pieces you already have in your closet! Think cardigans, leggings or bright and patterned tights tucked into awesome boots!
We hope you all have a beautiful week full of inspiration & creating!
Happy Sewing!
