We're moving! Look for Indygo Junction soon on Handicraft.com
VMM 241x130 GIVEAWAY Amy's new fabric line Vintage Made Modern Centennial Celebration will be debuting this month! In celebration of the line, her first with RJR Fabrics, we are hosting a Vintage Made Modern Blog tour. We are so excited to have 12 of our creative friends join us to give their interpretations of the new fabric line and it's inspiration, Amy's book Vintage Notions: An Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Sewing, Fashion and Fun. jVintageNotions_cover_table_3x3 In 2010 Amy published Vintage Notions, which was was the culmination of a personal journey that started twenty years ago when she began collecting rare sewing and needle arts books, vintage home arts magazines, and cookbooks. Amy reached a pivotal point in her collecting when she came across the work and wisdom of Mary Brooks Picken, who was a pioneer in the domestic arts and international authority on dressmaking and fashion, who founded the Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences, a correspondence school for women. 8641_vmmm_w Vintage Notions featured all original artwork that was published by the Woman’s Institute. Amy loved these illustrations and thought they would be perfect for a fabric line and is excited to bring this vintage style to the modern sewist. The timing is especially appropriate because 2016 will be the 100-year anniversary of the founding of the Woman’s Institute. psp_vmmm_w The collection is perfect for so many projects - garments, accessories, even organizational projects! Here are just some of the pieces we have made with it... VMM-TrunkShowSheet We have even designed the cotton to coordinate with our Crossroads Denim line. Here is our Banded Basket pattern which features both the denim and cotton. DSC_8883cropped We hope you will enjoy seeing this vintage material given a modern life. Check back here everyday to find inspiration on bring Vintage Made Modern to your life.

I am vintage! I was born in 1940 and I love everything from that time period and beyond.
My kitchen is decorated around a Hosier kitchen cabinet. It has a flour sifter on the left side facing, a roll top middle section and another tall door on the right. I have it stuffed with vintage green and pink glass ware! I love making aprons, baby quilts from vintage reproduction fabrics.
I am currently made items to sell at my first craft show in October. I have two singer feather weight sewing machines~! Boy could I use the stuff you are offering. I would love to sell one of the Featherweights.
