New spring fabrics are starting to arrive! Yay! This is my favorite time of year, opening the boxes that come from UPS are so exciting, it's like Christmas.....even better. New round today of awesomely fun Alexander Henry Prints

Cowgirl Fun!

These lady bugs look so real.....it's a photo image, love it.

Fashionista, bright spring colors, my fave.

Gotta love the tattoo, little bigger print than last years...but ever so cool.

"Sew Everything Workshop"

A big thank you to Diana Rupp, author of "Sew Everything Workshop" and founder of Make in NYC!

We had a great time with Diana, she was down in Austin promoting her fantastic book and came by to make some awesome fabric Valentines with some crafty folks! Using blank note cards and envelopes, she showed us how to cut out cute little designs from the fabrics, add interfacing to the back, and then how to sew the fabric onto the cards using our machines and decorative stitches. Thank you, we had a blast!!
If you don't have "Sew Everything Workshop", you've got to check it out, it's one of the most comprehensive and easy to read sewing books with lots of patterns to use as well.

My very first blog!

Well, finally. I'm a late bloomer, always have been always will be. I have this great little shop in Austin, TX called Craft-O-Rama. We have great classes in sewing, knitting and crochet, not to mention the bad ass crafty supplies we sell here!

Open since April 2007, it's been an amazing ride and I can't wait to see what's to come in 2008! Stayed tuned for all the latest info on new fabric shipments, special events and classes.
