It’s here, it’s here!! The moment you’ve all been waiting for!
…okay, okay, the moment we here at nido have been waiting for: The new Nani Iro line!
Unfortunately we didn’t receive the entire shipment, but I’m not complaining! These 5 bolts of fabric will have to do until the rest of it comes in. The rest of it meaning a whopping 20 more items!
You can take a look at the nani iro catalog here to get a better idea of what is still on the way. Gorgeous stuff!
Also be sure to check out our Facebook page, and new flickr page for more photos!
So far we have 4 cotton double gauze fabrics, and one cotton/linen blend of the collection. I can’t wait for the rest of it to get here! It’s one of my absolute favorite collections of 2012.
I hope everyone is having a great start to their week!
nido’s summer class schedule is now posted! Be sure to check it out. Due to popular demand, our Learn to Sew class is now being offered twice a month AND we have made it even easier to take now that it is just a 3 hour class! Already familiar with the basics but want to add to your sewing repertoire? Take the Colette Ginger Skirt or the Piping Pillows class. Both are just a few hours and will have you learning new skills in literally no time at all. Did you just recently learn how to sew? Why not try our Lazy Day Kids Skirt or our Pajama Pants for Everyone class. Both are designed to help absolute beginners get started on working with patterns.
We are always interested in hearing customer feedback, so please feel free to e-mail us with classes that you would like to see on future class schedules. info@nidoVT.com
When I first met Rochelle she was already hooked on sewing her one-of-a-kind accessories in her shop, Lucky Lucille, but clothes? Well, she just wasn’t so sure about sewing up some stylin’s. But, look at her go now! I think she must have an entire wardrobe full of handmade lovelies!
Rochelle’s latest achievement is her finished Hazel Dress from Colette Patterns. Not only has she sewn her muslin and given detailed suggested alterations to the pattern on her blog, Rochelle is also hosting a Colette Patterns Sew Along! Needless to say, this is THE girls to talk to at nido if you have any questions about Colette Patterns!
nido carries the Hazel Pattern as well as many other Colette Patterns. Stop in to get a peek at Rochelle in her dress or to get tips on how to make your own!
Borrowed this Wiksten Tank from Ashley yesterday, just to check out the sizing before I made my own, but have fallen in love with this one.
The latest edition of Rhythm of the Home is now available on-line .YAY! For those of you who have not taken a peek at what ROTH has to offer, I strongly suggest you do. The magazine touches on subjects ranging from education to health to sewing and other fiber arts. There are also pieces about community, children, seasons and much, much more. Every morning this week I have found myself drinking a cup pf coffee and reading a few of the articles. Beautiful work!
Doesn’t this make a perfect gift for the dad in your life? I think so! Since Father’s Day also happens to be the start of summer, the idea to make something that could be useful at the beach, on a picnic or just on the back deck is always very appealing. Activities that bring the family together is what it is all about. And the best part is, the flip side is a tic-tac-toe board!
I used a piece of Mod Green Pod’s solid canvas, a water soluable marker, fabric paint and a square eraser to complete the project and picked up some polished rocks at the garden store for the checker pieces. I also made a quick zipper pouch to hold the pieces. Pretty simple and like I said, should actually come in pretty handy in the beautiful days to come!
You can find a similar tutorial here. The one I used was in a past issue of Martha Stewart Living.
