She’s Sew Crazy Studios will be at the first ever Fairview Missions Market on June 26 & 27 at the Fairview Church in Lebanon, Tennessee.  And I can’t wait.  I happen to know some of the ladies involved in hosting this event and I am confident it will be as lovely as they are, not to mention the proceeds of the show go to support the church’s missionary work abroad.  Sounds like a win-win to me.

For all the details click here for their Facebook page.

If you are local why won’t you come see us?  We would love to hug your neck and talk you into buying something!  Plus I know they are going to have a food truck to two around and the shopping will be fabulous.

Our booth colors are going to be lavender and mint inspired by this gorgeous mood board I found on Pinterest.

Moments From May and a New Item

May is the second busiest time of the year for our family, next to Christmas. We have several birthdays in May as well as all the end of school activities. Awana shuts down for the summer and the process of opening up the swimming pool begins.  We have had lots of good news this May and hopefully some we will be able to share with you guys soon.

At the end of April my mom and I took our annual pilgrimage to Paducah, Kentucky for the yearly International Quilt Festival.  We shopped and ate and lingered in front of some of the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen. Every year I am amazed and inspired by the quilt submissions from all over the world.  I snapped a few photos of some of my favorites.  For a complete list of the show’s winners go to American Quilter’s Society webpage.

We also bought lots of new materials and tools for sewing, plus a little fabric.  Here are some pics of what I brought home.

The Quilt Pounce- a new chalk based system for machine quilting designs. I love it!

Did I mention May was busy???  I totally forgot we also did a brand new barn sale!  I have told you guys about January before, how she is awesome and creative and totally who I wanna be when I grow up.  Well she has gone and upped her street cred with a new successful Spring barn show called Garden & Goods located at the Cragfont Mansion in historic Castalian Springs, Tennessee.  The location was stunning and the vendors were top-notch.  January really knows her stuff and again produced a wonderful weekend of music, shopping and food.  Please go and check out January for yourselves at her website J. Alexander Home Designs and Facebook page and give her some love- she deserves it.

Here are some shots from our booth at the Garden & Goods Show.

My plans for June is to take some risks and try to maybe lose some weight!  We shall see about that.  We’ve got lots to share this summer.  We have added new booths to our schedule and are busy busy creating new items to fill those engagements.   I am currently updating the Etsy shops and hopefully very  soon will be able to share a new venue with you.  Until then, sew on my friends, sew on.   Morgan ♥♥♥

Pick It Fence Barn Sale

If you have been anywhere near our Facebook page She’s Sew Crazy!  lately you already know we participated in the Pick It Fence Barn Sale in Lascassas, TN.  It was a tremendous success.  I am so excited to share some photos from the sale and to introduce you to some of the fabulous vendors and their wares.

The sale was held at a beautiful property called Events at East 96 in picturesque Lascassas, TN.  The property is over 450 acres and includes several barns, a tool shed, loads of fields with cows, rabbits , wild turkeys and the main house which features a wrap around porch on all four sides.  The location was absolutely gorgeous and a perfect example of the beauty of Middle Tennessee.

We met many lovely people and had a blast reconnecting with our “boothy” friends.  The artisan community of full of awesome personalities and extremely talented artists.  It is definitely the interactions with the community and the relationships with other creatives that keep us coming back for more.

Tomorrow I’ll post more pics of the others vendors with whom we shared the weekend- Until then- Morgan
