Introducing A Sewist's Swatch Book!

Giveaway and sale alert! I'm so excited to share my new book with you today, and one lucky reader will be able to win a copy of it! What exactly is A Sewist's Swatch Book? It's the perfect companion to your Sewist's Notebooks. When I first started sewing and buying fabric, I had an encyclopedic knowledge of each of my purchases. But as time went by and my stash grew, I started forgetting things. Where did this interlock come from? Was I saving it for something? What's the composition of this knit? I had done extensive photo cataloging, but without a physical swatch I lost track of what was what. I started wishing for a physical way to record my lovely fabrics, so I could see and touch all of my fabrics at once (even the ones packed away!).

The book contains over 100 pages for cataloging fabric, featuring the same options for quick-circling that I love from the original Sewist's Notebook.

There is a key for universal care symbols, as well as a guide for determining the stretch percentage of your fabric.

I've started filling up my own book and I'm so glad that I can use it to be more efficient with my projects. I'm always forgetting what has been pre-washed and how much yardage I have. Now I can quickly see if a fabric is ready to go.

110 Creations: A Sewist's Swatch Book has been almost two years in the making. It took a backseat to having two babies, but now it's ready to be brought into the world as well! Pick up a copy HERE (use code BFRIDAY33 for 33% off!), or win your own through my Instagram contest HERE. Sale ends 11/27 at midnight eastern, and giveaway closes 11/28.


  1. Hi
    I just wanted to let you know I tried TWICE to order your Swatch book. Once off of Fiona's blog post (Diary of a Chainstitcher) and now yours. Lulu will absolutely NOT allow an order to be processed UNLESS you click the box indicating you WANT their newsletters. Were you aware of this? You will lose sales if this continues. I know this is the problem because I tried it twice and both times they claim I have entered a duplicate email which is wrong. It's because I won't check the box to receive their promotional emails. Some distributers do this without the awareness of their clients - just thought you might like to know. I think you might do better with another distributer than Lulu :) Anyway just loved your swatch book - would love to have ordered it from Fiona since she did a lovely write up and great discount through her blog posting and doesn't seem fair you are BOTH losing out on sales due to Lulu's aggressive sales practices.

    1. Hi Kathleen! I spoke with Lulu customer support and they assured me that they do not require email opt-in to purchase. You can even check out as a guest. They would be happy to assist you while you're ordering so that they can troubleshoot your specific problem. I hope this helps!

  2. I could not refrain from commenting. Perfectly written!


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to comment below.
