Hey all you big time creative sewers, three weeks until, the big day. Christmas! Do you have everything you need? There is still plenty of time to whip up some sweet little gifts, or maybe even a few large ones. When you give a gift that is handmade you might be giving something that could become a family heirloom. Think about those special items you have that your Momma or Grandma made. Time ticks by so quickly, soon your beloveds will be hanging onto things that YOU created. When you think about it this way, you can have a hand in your family history, by stitching something heartfelt today! Weird, but true.
To that point, if you log onto maryjos.com you can shop, as late or as early as you would like and find exactly the perfect fabric. You will enjoy the FREE Shipping we are offering the entire month of December. It is our holiday thank-you to you.
Etsy Storefronts: Whew, we sure have gotten a fine response from you talented folks. Today we are going to feature a few of the gals who sent links to their Etsy Storefronts. You will be delighted, we sure were!
We are featuring a few more each week in December, tell your friends who have Etsy Storefronts or sell online. They may be a feature! Email today.
Our first pick is Ellen Reed. We have featured her before and we love that she purchases her fabric here at Mary Jo's and that she comments on our blog posts and most importantly, makes some super sweet handbags, which we think you will love as much as we do.
Not your Momma's Handbags, Etsy Storefront. Ellen buys all of her sewing supplies and fabric for the linings of these delightful and fun handbags.
The second Etsy Storefront comes with a sweet little story, from a customer who lives in Georgia, Patsy Clements. Flutterwear Boutique, Etsy Storefront
I have enclosed my etsy address with the outfit I am selling made from fabric bought from Mary Jo's. My girlfriend and I made a trip to North Carolina in October to see Mary Jo's store for the first time and we were wowed by how wonderful it was. I was looking for that perfect material for my new fall line of children's clothing along with other material for my many Christmas gifts I am making. A couple of quilts later and several dresses I am so very satisfied with the quality of material and how beautiful everything turned out. I made the most stunning Christmas dress for my 16 month old granddaughter. Her pictures are on Saturday. Can't wait to see them in print. She is also the model for my fall line.
Thanks to all the wonderful staff who helped me the entire day I spent at Mary Jo's. I was there from the time they opened and the last one to check out. Everyone was absolutely wonderful. I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful Christmas season.
