Two for Teal… Our first mini swap!

Have you ever participated in a quilt swap, or craft swap of any kind? I have heard of them before but have never actually participated until now.  

We got word of this awesome Two for Teal mini swap that is not only coordinated around my favorite color, it also supports a cause near and dear to both Heidi’s and my heart. Ten dollars out of every entry fee is going to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, which funds clinical research grants in understanding why ovarian cancer forms, how it acts, and how to better treat it.  Sadly, we have both lost grandmothers to this disease because they were not diagnosed early enough. OCRF helps spread awareness about identifying symptoms of ovarian cancer so others can get help before it’s too late. We are so honored to participate and to help spread awareness for an incredible cause. Please check the OCRF link above to learn about early signs of ovarian cancer and share it with all the special women in your life.   Through the mini swap we will be sent a piece of teal fabric that will be the primary focus of whatever we make. And we will be swapping pieces with a complete stranger.  We have the choice of making a mini quilt (18″ max) or a mug rug (10″ max). I’m super excited to see what everyone comes up, but am so nervous about making something that these amazing quilters will like. I’ve got a few ideas on what to make, but you’ll have to stay tuned! We will keep you posted on our mini swap projects and their progress. They are due back to our swap partners by October 1st! 

Happy Sewing!

Don’t Quit Your Day Dream

This is it. We are actually doing this. Our first blog post! Heidi and I officially opened Bobbin’s Lullaby four months ago, although we’veΒ been dreaming of doing it for years. We’ve always drooled over our favorite sewing blogs, DIY sewing books from the library, and of course, our never ending Pinterest boards. And always with the thought “we could totally make that”! With small children at home it seemed nearly impossible to really make a go of it, until January 2015. You know that feeling of a fresh start as the new year rolls over at midnight. Where the possibilities are endless, and changes are sure to make their way into your house. Well we took that feeling and ran with it…. and we aren’t looking back!

Co-Owners of Bobbin’s Lullaby

We met in college 10 years ago (yikes, has it been that long?!) where we were both art majors, and bonded over a love for the creative process, color composition, and espeically photography. We are both active in every aspect of our business, from creating new inventory, marketing, and even the nitty gritty accounting. We love it all and look forward to sharing more of our processes with you, and hearing about yours as well!

Thanks for joining us!
