I am very pleased to announce that I am now a Cali Fabrics blogger!
OK, so I’ve actually known for ages but I didn’t want to share until the new blog team was officially launched on Monday. Some of you might have already seen my mug on the lineup (and I was rumbled a few weeks ago by Meg from Pigeon Wish) but the first few posts went live this week so the secret is out!
Cali Fabrics, based in San Francisco, have created a new team of over 20 sewists from around the world to make lush clothes and blog about the great range of fabrics and trims Cali Fabrics offer.
I actually saw a post on instagram a couple of months ago seeking new bloggers to be part of the blogger team, so I thought ‘why not?’, fired off an email and was lucky enough to be picked! I’ve read a few of the profiles for my fellow blog team members, some of whom may already be familiar faces, but I think I might be the only UK based sewist, so I will be providing my British opinions on the fabrics posted across the Atlantic (along with anecdotes about tea and cake, probably).
Having received my first parcel from the States, I am currently working on my first make for the blog. Naturally I chose a complicated pattern (more on that in my post…) so it’s taking a bit longer than planned, but while you wait for my posts as I furiously stitch away, why not check out the other people on the team and check out the first few posts! I will be posting both on the Cali Fabrics and here too.
More importantly – Cali Fabrics are currently holding a competition to win a $100 gift certificate to spend in store! Check it out here – gotta be in it to win it! (90’s catchphrase optional of course…)
Please note: the Cali Fabrics blog team and I have been provided different fabrics in exchange for our participation and our honest reviews. All opinions expressed in my posts will be my own. Where supplies were purchased elsewhere, this will clearly noted with alternatives available at Cali Fabrics given where possible.
