November Update and Happenings!

It is hard to believe that it is already November!! Fall is certainly in the air and I believe with fall comes more sewing time as we spend a greater amount of hours inside. I personally have a fireplace (gas) in my studio and on a cool day it is so cozy to have a fire going and settle into a project.

Round 7 has seen some significant changes to the ordering process. Due to a number of challenges with Paypal invoicing and on the advice of Paypal staff, we have taken steps to remove the paypal invoice from our system and replace it with a system that offers a Paypal button which has better "backend" systems and security for both the seller and customer.


Fabric Stache  was built to host both Shannon and Jackie's presales and retail orders as a result. It is hoped that soon you will all come to appreciate the more streamlined process and direct check out options that have not been able to be offered previously. Paypal is still offered as a payment option but you can also use your favorite credit card now securely. Please take comfort in the fact that we do not see nor retain your credit card information. 

If you have not stumbled upon Shannon's Stachuation yet, it is a blog with updates and information specific to fabric and buys Shannon is running. It has been built as a one stop place to find current info and we hope to (in time) add some other bonus features.

We all need fabric to sew with so here is the Shannon's Stachuation as it is right now......

Pre Order Round 7S is OPEN!!

  

Koyari is an Indian inspired Paisley. Mendhi is the elephant print and made us think of intricate henna art. Skateboarder is the rad print for the boys...big and small. The solids work for each and Mendhi and Koyari also have the same colors and work together. A colorway has been developed to allow you to maximize combinations of fabrics that will work in unison yet produce unique and vastly different final results depending on how they are applied.

A couple of examples :

 



The bonus print this round is The Walking Dead. An edgy feel, it is a grown up print and is produced for that group. Great for loungers, tees and boxers for your favorite TWD junkie!
