Aimee' and Tiffany
Last week I was so happy to go and meet Tiffany from Creative Smocking. Tiffany is the owner of Creative Smocking CS Distributing. She was at AllBrands highlighting the different sewing patterns she distributes. I have to say she is super sweet and just as beautiful in person as she is via email! Tiff, it was great finally meeting you in person. Let me know when you come back this way. Hopefully it'll be when all the humidity is gone..... ummhmmm, no wait, it's always humid here ;)
Also, I have added a facebook page however I am so confused if I should keep the fan page or just the main facebook page? any suggestions?? not sure what the difference is other than the like button. I would love to be your friend on the main facebook page!

I have created a SewSensible facebook page. If you are interested in becoming friends you can use this link. If you are interested in just the page to like then you can use this link. If you get a chance please come visit. (and I obviously do not know what I am doing on facebook as far as pages and the other?? It is a little confusing to me so I did both.)
I pray all of you are doing great!

What is that? Well, if you are a beginner sewer you are probably asking this question. This is a Bodkin. It is a blunt instrument for threading or as I solely use it to put my elastic through the waist band! I lost mine this summer and the other day was blessed to be able to go spend a couple hours in a fabric store and got me another bodkin along with saturating my self with fabric goodness!! HA!! and also use a gift card my sweet aunt gave me for my birthday! Thanks, Aunt Peggy and thanks Mom for watching the kiddos for me to leave for a few hours!!
Now of course a safety pin works very well inserting elastic but once you use the bodkin..... well, you will see! Where can I find a bodkin? At any craft/fabric store usually by the needles, snaps, and measuring tapes. How much does a bodkin cost? This little treasure was under $3 (worth every bit of it!)
