Today’s gift ideas are all for people who sew! It’s your day!

Today’s Guest Curators: Jess and Donna from Bloomerie Fabrics

This mother-daughter team just entered a fourth year keeping shop at Bloomerie. Bloomerie Fabrics sells modern fabric, patterns, embroidery supplies and more. They have a great selection of pre-cuts and fabric bundles and there’s always something new to love in the shop.

You can also find Jess and Donna at the Bloomerie blog. These self-confessed fabric hoarders lovers both learned to sew at an early age and believe it’s still one of the most important skills a parent or other adult can pass along. Donna writes, “Sewing has been handed down through the generations in our family, so it’s naturally an important tradition for us. Bloomerie’s the result of all the talented, strong-willed women who came before us. And we love that!” Jess adds, “Sewing’s also a marvelously fulfilling creative outlet. Who doesn’t get inspired by stacks of fabric and envision what they’ll become? We get to experience that every day in our studio.” Looking for your own sewing inspiration? Follow Jess and Donna on Pinterest!
