Quick guide to ZIPPERS!

I was doing some leisurely reading this morning and found this wonderful Guide to Zippers. Concise and well-illustrated with great pictures, this is an absolutely informative and interesting write-up for anyone looking for a quick tip or two!

We are back to the sewing table!

After almost 2 months since the Christmas celebrations, we are back in action after a very rewarding and much-needed break! What got me back to serious business at the sewing table, you ask? Well….how’s RM725 to set you back for a start? A trip to Quilt Friends (Bernina PJ) was something on my to-do list since the festivities were over. Somehow (and as always), this “task” got pushed further and further down an increasingly long list. Everyone had settled back into routine, …but yours truly here had been taking things way too easy! Relaxing with a book all curled up in my favorite spot in the house, sipping coffee…you must wonder, what happened to the daily madness of attending to a boisterous little monster and getting housework done, plus getting that creative inspiration in the dead of the night??

 My little man reached a new milestone on February 2nd, when he first attended playschool. So every week now, I get THREE mornings completely to myself! I thought, “Great! That’d give me lots of time to work on my new projects for 2012,” But procrastination got the better of me. 😉 Still, I got started today!! 

So here is my very first post for the new year, and I promise I will try my best to pop in every few days. I am in the midst of something very exciting which, if everything goes well, I believe will launch Make Mine Fabric into our next growth phase.

Till my next blog entry….have a beautiful day everyone!

Snapshots from the Market Nov 19 & 20

Finally….snapshots from last weekend! Have been procrastinating all week to post these pictures taken at the Market last weekend.

Here’s the round-up on MMF’s weekend at the Street Market in 1 Mont’ Kiara – met some really nice people *you know who you are 🙂 * and sales was above-average. A big thank you to all who dropped in to say hi, and went home with some of our home-sewn goodies.

MMF is happy to announce that a total of RM100 will be donated to Soi Dog Foundation in aid of the four-legged victims in the current Bangkok flood. This donation comes from our sales proceeds over last weekend’s Market, so to those who purchased from us, please know that your support has, and will make a difference to the abandoned and stranded animals that are rescued from the floods in Bangkok. Further to this, I am sure that all volunteers and rescuers at Soi Dog Foundation will be most grateful for your generous support. THANK YOU ALL!!

We’ll be at the Street Market again on December 3rd & 4th. So if you missed us last week, make a date with us next week! In the meantime, stay tuned to know about our latest fabric designs that dress our hoot pillows, fabric storage bins and kids’ crayon wallets! Some Christmas goodies are also lined up for sale!

It’s Bazaar Weekend in 1 Mont’ Kiara again!!

The bazaar weekend is here again! I’ll be at the Street Market in 1 Mont’ Kiara this weekend November 19th and 20th! The market starts at 10am, but if you’re heading there for breakfast, swing by and grab some goodies while I set up shop! Psst…Early birds might get some value buys from me. 🙂

We have lots of new fabrics for our adorable little hoot pillows, and if you’re starting on your Christmas shopping, or already midway through, we might have something to complete your list! Choose a gift for the kids from our wide selection of colorful crayon pouches and activity tote bags. Get organized with our handy, multi-purpose reversible fabric storage bins.

When you purchase something from Make Mine Fabric, know that you’re not only going to make someone smile…for every item you buy, we will donate RM5 to the Soi Dog Foundation for the rescue mission that is happening right now in Bangkok. Your purchase will help rescuers and volunteers who are working round the clock to rescue and treat thousands of homeless, abandoned dogs, cats and other animals that are stranded in the floods.

I’d love to meet you, and if you would like something customised, I’d definitely try my best to help! Thank you for stopping by to read this post!


Help save the animals in Bangkok’s flood!

This picture says it all...the animals affected by the floods in Bangkok.

Make Mine Fabric will donate RM5 from each item sold. The money will go towards helping the animal rescuers in Thailand to save and take care of the dogs, cats, birds and other animals that are stranded in the floods in Thailand. As people are being evacuated from flood areas, their pets as well as thousands of strays are left behind to fend for themselves as water levels continue to rise by the minute!

Soi Dog Foundation is a not-for-profit, legally registered charitable organization in Thailand, the United States, Australia, France and Holland. Soi Dog helps the homeless, neglected and abused dogs and cats of Thailand. Their aim is to set an example for the Asian region on how to humanely reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats through spaying and neutering, and to better the lives and living conditions of the stray dogs and feral cats of Asia. For updates on their rescue mission, please visit their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/SoiDogPageInEnglish?sk=info Please help

Your purchase, however small, will contribute towards saving the lives of these unfortunate animals. Thank you for reading this.

Bangkok flood is at its peak. Rescue volunteers need all the help and donations they can get.

Bazaar Announcement

We won’t be at the bazaar this weekend! 😦 A few hiccups during the week have led to the decision to just give the Street Market @ 1MK a miss on November 5th. I am very disappointed though, because I really geared up production in anticipation of a good crowd this long holiday weekend.

Having said that, I will be at the bazaar on November 19th and 20th. You will get a tinker from me when it’s closer to those dates, so worry not if you’re forgetful (like yours truly).

In the meantime, business is as usual  if you wish to place an order through my web-blog. Just drop me an email or call me!
