Here is the lovely lady of LADYVILLE herself, Sandra Striffler, and her newest dvd tutorial, #9 Swirly Skirt(Tellerrock). She shows you all how to make not only a zipperless, swirly skirt for yourself, ladies, but also for your daughters! You can see a clip from the newest dvd above, which we will be carrying soon. I really am impressed with these dvds, she explains so well and it so easy to follow her instructions. For this project she used organic cotton fabric from volksfaden, (thank you very much Sandra....) Daisy Apples Blue and an organic cotton jersey, Jersey Indigo Stripe. We also have an organic cotton black and white jersey, similiar to the fabric she has used for ladyskirt...all of these fabrics can be found in our organic cotton category.

Stof A/S Denmark has expanded their fabric production and these fabrics from the collection "Free As A Bird" are some of their newest designs. I think this is a great collection for kids rooms, on the Stof site you can see some quilts and other things that have been made with these fabrics. If you click on Gallery and then Free As A Bird, 21 pages of ideas are shown...the fabrics are on our virtual shelves now at volksfaden.

I am crazy about these new fabrics from Shine Shine. Heidi Chisholm has designed these wild fabrics for Tracy Rushmere's amazing South African fabric company SHINE SHINE. Shine Shine takes the African commemorative cloths to a whole new level.....we will be getting the Obama fabric in as soon as it has been reprinted but for the time being we delighted to have a First Lady fabric...M.O. Baby. The fabrics can be found here....

I think these are a great idea, step by step DVD tutorials on sewing bags, pouches, book covers and laptop sleeves. Sandra Striffler, the creative force behind Ladyville® has created seven different DVDs , each one focusing on a sewing project like a bag or a laptop sleeve. So you can get your sewing supplies ready, pop the DVD into your computer and spend 35 to 50 minutes sewing along with Sandra, in the comfort of your own home and at any hour of the day or night you feel like it, and at the end of your time spent together you have made yourself a sassy new bag.....these are now on sale at volksfaden.
