First Wholesale Order! Grey’s Fabric in Boston, MA

Happy Friday, everyone! I have exciting news to share. This week I received my first wholesale order, from Grey’s Fabric and Notions in Boston, MA!

If you’re in the Boston area and have a chance to check out Grey’s Fabric, let me know! (Has anyone been there already?) From the photos it looks like a fantastic store if you love to sew. There’s a gorgeous selection of cotton lawns and pretty prints, as well as several wonderful independent pattern lines. I’m thrilled to be included!

What an exciting step for Sewaholic Patterns! I just had to share it with all of you. Thanks for all your support so far and a special thanks to Grey’s Fabric in Boston!

And if that wasn’t exciting enough all on its own – there was a finished Pendrell Blouse sighting last night! Mary made the Pendrell Blouse and posted it on her blog. Check out her beautiful blue version!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! It’s back to the men’s shirt project for me. On that note, thank you all so much for the fitting feedback on yesterday’s post! It really helps having a second (and third and fourth) opinion on how to best tackle fitting issues. I’ll be making some intense neckline and collar adjustments and sharing my process as I go.

PS. Want your own Pendrell Blouse pattern? There’s still time to order your pattern for the Sew-Along starting January 10th. Click here to visit the store!

    Oh, exciting!!!!

    So funny that it’s on the other side of the continent from you, too, although I suppose that probably doesn’t matter all that much… ;)

    How exciting! That’s an awesome milestone.

    I haven’t ordered mine yet- I’m forcing myself to hold out and order it as a present for myself after my midterms are finished, because I know if I get it before they’re done I’ll end up tanking!

    Holy smokes, that was super fast! You must be doing a great job!

    As soon as I can scrape some money together I’ll definitely be ordering a pattern, I’m in my 7th year of being a uni student so I’m pretty strapped for cash but the Pendrell blouse is definitely on my wish list for when I make my next Etsy sale!

    How amazing! I am really excited for you. I have my own vision for making patterns, but life and new baby has gotten me at a stand still for that endeavor at the moment. It is great to see how it is working out for you. You are on your way to some great things for your Sewaholic Patterns!
