May is a time of transition here in Minnesota. I don’t know if I would call it a beautiful month since all the leaves and vegetation have yet to grow enough to cover all the mud and litter exposed by the melting snow, but it is a time of promise and that holds a certain beauty in itself.
Freezer Paper Buttonhole Tutorial
When Cinnamon asked to use my Freezer Paper Buttonhole tutorial on Sewing With Cinnamon & Friends this month, Tom, my wonderful husband and business partner, decided we should
turn it into a video. We have been talking about doing videos for a couple of years now, but I have never been able to put my bravery on to do it ~ until now. If you like this video, consider
becoming a member of Sewing with Cinnamon & Friends, where you can learn lots of insightful tips, techniques, and tricks-of-the-trade used by Cinnamon and the designers at Pixie Faire ~ not to mention all sorts of special member rewards! Join now, enrollment closes on May 31st and won’t open again until September.
Check out our new Freezer Paper Video and leave a comment on YouTube to be included in a random drawing for a 48 piece assortment of four of my favorite buttons (12 of each style)!
February 7 marked Laura Ingalls Wilder’s 150th birthday and to commemorate my childhood hero I started a special The Long Winter Project. This project includes two brand new and three popular patterns inspired by Laura Ingalls book, The Long Winter. We have spent the last month revising, resizing, and photographing all these patterns as we bring this project together. Enjoy these patterns as they become available, and I will share more about our The Long Winter Project in the coming months!

Historical Doll Fashion Group
We all love dolls and sewing for various reasons, but for me, it is all about history! If you love historical doll fashion too, consider joining a new group on Facebook called Historical costuming for modern dolls that is being organized by Olga Watkin. Here, you can join in conversations about history and fashion, share your own creations and links to favorite museums, patterns, and anything else related to the history of fashion.
