Well, Jump Rope Sew-Alongers, you have the weekend to catch up to our contributors. We’re enjoying your process photos on Flickr and can’t wait to see your finished dresses!

For the rest of you who aren’t sewing along, I encourage you to take a look at the posts from this week. Amy, Amanda and Jeanne are amazing sewing instructors. If you ever need help with tracing your pattern and cutting your fabric, creating a placket, making a collar, or setting in sleeves, you should bookmark these posts! You can comment in any of the sew-along posts to win a new Oliver + S pattern or a 12-pack of City Weekend fat quarters (coming soon!)

We received some great new fabric this week.  Just in time for a change in the weather…

We also received two collections from Anthology Fabrics, which is a company that is new to the quilting fabric scene, but has been around the fashion fabrics industry for a long time.  We’re really excited by their artists–surface designers with a wide range of products behind them.
