Sew Gracious is staying BUSY!

Where to find me:

Hey Friends!  Remember me? 
I'm the one who used to blog here, regularly.
 Yeah....that girl!

Just a FEW of the dozens of beautiful pillow covers from the SG Etsy Shop
Many sizes as well as custom sizes and sets are available!

I can happily report that I haven't blogged because I've been busy with the new direction of my Etsy shop.  Last fall, I started the transition from making organizer bins, accessories and the like to the world of home decor.  I love making pillow covers and it's been a great success.

I realized that it was just much easier to keep customers up-to-date on the latest items and SG news via the Sew Gracious Facebook page.  I'm already logged in there daily and it's easy to share a picture and a quick quip about something new.  As much as I enjoyed doing the blog, it created more work and I felt like I was repeating myself here and on FB.  

That said...I hope you will follow/like Sew Gracious on Facebook.  I'm going to take a break from writing the blog for a while, but hope to get back to it.  I have tons of pictures and recipes to share but until there are more than 24 hours in the day, I'll stick with sewing and keeping up up-to-date via Facebook.

If you any questions, you can message me via the Etsy shop or Facebook.  I'd love to hear from you!

Happy New Year 2012

Thank you to all of my customers for making 2011 another successful year at Sew Gracious!  It's because of you that I am able to be a to do "mom stuff" and "family stuff" whenever I am needed, but enjoying the ability to be my own boss.  THANK YOU!

May 2012 be a wonderful year for us all.  Praying for peace, happiness, kindness, generosity, good health, prosperity, a positive change for our nation, a turnaround in our economy and just for folks to be considerate of others.

With love & best wishes!

Christmas & Holiday Ordering Deadline & Vacation Notice

Available in at CountryWorkshop on Etsy

Well, that just about says it all, doesn't it?  ;)

Today is December 12.  That means only 13 days until the Big Day.  That also means shopping time is getting short; especially if ordering items that need to be mailed to you.

The deadline for ordering from the Sew Gracious Etsy Shop is

After that date, the Etsy shop will remain open during the holidays, but no new orders can be processed until after Christmas.  My machines will go to the shop for their annual tune up and I'll be spending time with my family.  Yay!  I may try to work on more destashing in the studio so watch for new fabrics and some supplies to be available after Christmas.  Goodness knows that I have plenty of fabric that needs a new home. :)  Ready to ship items will be shipped throughout the holiday season.   

Enjoy these last few days before Christmas and remember to take care of yourself too. :)

It's been a wonderful, busy, family-filled, Christmas decorating, cooking, eating, napping and eating a little more weekend in Sew Graciousville.  I hope yours has been just as wonderful. :)
Tomorrow is another big day.  Cyber Monday is the Monday following Black Friday.  Everyone is back at work or home and they are shopping online.  Personally,  I like that best.  You can have a cup of tea, a glass or wine or whatever you like; wear your yoga pants and shop, shop, shop.  What's better than that!?

The Cyber Monday special is up & running in the SG Etsy shop now.  Why wait til Monday when you can knock out some shopping tonight?

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday & Cyber Monday

If you are reading this, you survived the Turkey Coma of Thanksgiving 2011 and possibly some midnight/all night shopping at some big box places.  Now it's time to get home and do some shopping online.

As you know, today is Black Friday, the kick off to the biggest shopping weekend of the season.  Sew Gracious is offering FREE US SHIPPING when you enter the code 'BLACKFRIDAY2011' at Etsy checkout.  Remember to enter the code to receive your discount because the Etsy cart automatically takes care of that for you.  :)  Sorry, but this can't be applied to previously place orders or if the code is not entered.

A new player in the big shopping weekend is Small Business Saturday.  That's a new push to have customer focus on small Sew Gracious!  It's also intended to encourage shoppers to spend the dollars locally, at shops in their own town.  The point is to try to boost the economy and keep the little guys, like us, going strong too.  After all, we are the backbone of this country.

You know about Cyber Monday.  That day when people are back at work after the long weekend.  They still want to shop so they do it from their computers.  What's not to love about that?  SG will be participating too!

Check the Sew Gracious Etsy Shop Announcements all weekend for current coupon codes.
