Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions

We also just received a bevy of new books and patterns..including the brand-spankin new Amy Butler handbag book, which is drool-worthy of course.
Also hot off the press is Vintage Notions, a book by Kansas City's local pattern guru Amy Barickman. In this book, Amy gives us tips for sewing, cooking, needlework and life, all inspired by pamphlets from The Woman's Institute of the Domestic Arts and Sciences, and published between 1916 and 1934. Not only are the illustrations to die for, but the tips and tricks from the early part of the century are still valid today..this book is a must see!

We also got in some cool patterns from Amy's pattern company Indygo Junction. I've been looking for a coat pattern for this fall..this might be the one!

I can't believe how many talented & creative people live in Kansas City....what the heck did they put in the water there, anyway? Someday I'm going to visit your wonderful store and all of the other destinations that I've been reading about. There's lots of buzz about Amy's new book, so I'm sure I'll be buying it sometime soon.

Are you in Michigan did I see? You could totally do a weekend KC trip! Also, is that an adorable Westie pup you have? One of my favorite dogs!
