Welcoming Spring With Ikat and Yellow

  Y’all, it’s confession time: I am a sewing copycat. Last month, I bumped into a friend on campus and went absolutely nuts over her outfit–a simple cream sweater and utterly gorgeous navy-and-cream ikat pencil skirt. As with most clothes I covet, I started scheming up a version of my own. Isn’t that a fantastic perk of sewing? If we see something gorgeous, we’re not constrained by budget or retail trends. If you can think it, you can sew it! (Did anyone else just start humming “The Think System” ditty from The Music Man? No, only me?) Even better, the […]

One last coat for cool spring nights

      My most sincere apologies, I might have brought the cold weather back with this coat. Mea culpa.  BUT WOULDJA LOOKIT THAT INTERIOR.  HOW COULD I RESIST?! One of the great things about visiting  Mood Fabrics in person: you get to know the people there, who in turn know the fabric.  When I ran up to my favorite top floor, my angel Eric greeted me with his sunbeam of a smile and said I have a couple things I think you might like. I knew I wouldn’t even have to browse that day. He has me pegged. This woven piece of madness is […]

March is Lace Challenge Month at Mood Sewing Network

In the early days of the Mood Sewing Network, Meg and Eric of Mood asked us to consider a challenge where we each sewed something from the same fabric. They even let us agree on the fabric we wanted to sew.  After much discussion between the initial nine bloggers, we chose lace.  Why lace?  Here are a few explanations from my fellow bloggers… Lori from Girls in the Garden says… “Lace is an unknown fabric for me.  I have only made one garment previously from lace.  I am intrigued and challenged by this fabric, it is beautiful and delicate with […]

Welcome New Mood Sewing Network Bloggers!

  We are pleased to welcome two new bloggers to the Mood Sewing Network. Joining us this month is Lauren, of the sewing blog Lladybird.

Mood Sewing Network Fabric Giveaway!

When the going gets tough, the tough give away fabric! It has been a rough few days here in the Northeast, first with Hurricane Sandy doing her damage and then with the nor’easter dumping snow all over us. The good news though is that the power was finally restored to Mood’s NJ warehouse and we are working around the clock to get your orders out. But let’s talk about this fabric one lucky winner will receive. It’s a soft blend of wool, viscose and acrylic, and it feels like a lightweight sweater-knit. We think this would look fabulous as a […]

More About Becoming a Mood Sewing Network Blogger

Hi, and welcome to the Mood Sewing Network! We hope you like what you see and will come back often. The great thing about these nine bloggers is that they’re all very different from each other in their tastes, styles and sewing levels, so we feel pretty confident that you’ll find one or more bloggers who match your own sewing perspective. At some point in the future we plan on expanding the network beyond the nine women chosen for the launch. In fact, we’ve already gotten some emails and phone calls about becoming a Mood Sewing Network blogger. So you […]
