I should have added to the other faq post about discontinued fabric. Most of our fabrics are going to be “limited editions”. This is for a couple reasons.
The first is that it may just be all gone. Sometimes fabric manufacturers keep producing their prints and sometimes they have one run and then they are discontinued.
The second reason is because I like to keep things fresh. By continually adding and subtracting fabrics, it keeps it interesting for me and guarantees that there won’t be millions of bags out there that look exactly alike.
So….that said, if there is a fabric out there that you absolutely love, you can always email to see if I have gobs of it left, or if it’s nearing the end.
The blue flowers on brown actually falls into both categories- I have tried to find more but it’s all gone.
Now, on to more gross topics. Yesterday I impaled my finger with one of my thick sewing needles. I break a lot of needles, but have never had an injury from one. There’s always a first I guess. I thought it had just punctured my finger nail so when I went to the sink to wash off the blood, you can imagine my surprise when I turned my hand palm side up and saw a little bit of silver poking out of the back part of my finger. I stood there for a minute staring at it, thinking no way did that needle go all the way through my finger. I walked over and calmly got some tweezers and tried to gently pull it out. I just couldn’t do it so I yelled down to the basement where Andy was working on the plumbing, “hey can you come up here for a minute?” to which he responded “I’m busy! Can’t it wait?” Umm, don’t think so. So he came up and took a look at my finger and I watched it sink in as he figured out what I needed him to do. SO we went to the sink and he said, “1.2.3″ and tired to pull it out. It wouldn’t budge. Tried again, same thing. I started sweating and I thought I was going to throw up. But on the third try it came out and after a cold glass of water, all was well. But my finger is sore and has a hole it it! I eyed my sewing machine suspiciously for a while thinking “hey I thought we were friends” but I have since forgiven it.
