This week's message:

I've closed up the store -- in three days, I got 160 orders and way more things to sew (multiple items in a lot of those) so I'm going to need to catch up now before my kids' vacation week (April 21-25). I'll reopen on April 27, probably around 7pm Eastern time, and will do my best to stay open for more than a few days, although my turnaround time will certainly suffer as a result, but people haven't seemed to mind that. Please follow my page on Facebook, or bookmark the SBP home page, to see updates on my progress. Thank you very much for your interest and patronage :)

While the store is closed, the "Add to cart" button has been disabled to prevent new orders from being placed.

 

If you're looking at a product and can't see any swatches, click on the color selector for that product, pull down until you see the name of the color you're interested in, and then let go of the mouse button. The photo at left will change to reflect the chosen color. If this doesn't work on your browser, please send me an email and let me know.

Designer Tail Accents: Kaffe Fassett

Add a little pizazz to your sling with a tail accent! It will be sewn on as shown at right -- I used to do them all the way to the bottom of the tail (as is shown on the slings in the very old gallery), but feel that leaving a border of the sling fabric below the accent is a nicer look. If you would prefer a different placement, please let me know ahead of time. I can also add an open-top pocket within the accent at no extra charge; there is no closure, and the pocket will be around 8" wide by 10" deep.

You will need to select a main fabric from the shopping menu first, then select an accent fabric from those listed below. If you would like to add a print you've found yourself, use the "sent by customer" option.

Remember, you also need to pick out a base fabric! The materials alone in a regular sling cost more than $12, not to mention my sewing time. This $12 cost is for the accent fabric and extra sewing only, not for a complete sling.

Also keep in mind that this does not add any length to the sling. If you select an accent, the sling will still be sewn to the length you've specified.

About Kaffe Fassett: Fassett was born in San Francisco in 1937. When he was 19, Kaffe won a scholarship to the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston, but left after 3 months to paint in London. He settled in England in 1964. The international charity Oxfam asked Kaffe to work with poverty-stricken weaving villages in India and Guatemala, to advise on designs that would be more marketable in the West. As a result, a range of colourful hand woven fabrics is being produced for use as shirt fabric, bed throws and patchwork fabric, available on an international basis through Rowan UK and Westminster Fibres, USA. Other charity work has also taken him to South Africa. Kaffe's unique sense of colour and drive to create, combined with his desire to encourage others, has led to his reputation as a guru in the world of colour and textiles.
