I wanted to check in real quick with some exciting goings on around Urban Threads of late. First up, I’m super excited to announce that Urban Threads has won three Golden Needle awards from the celebrated industry magazine Stitches. Our Baroque Punk designs won Design of the Year Technical Fashion, Design of the Year Artistic Fashion & Editor’s Pick!
We want to extend a very special thanks to Laura Fulk who collaborated with us on the amazing Baroque Punk Blazer featured in the article. You can see the whole thing online here.

Second, in case you missed it, I was a guest speaker on the American Patchwork & Quilting Radio show last week discussing skulls and embroidery with the lovely Pat. You can listen to the archived show by going here and clicking on the 10-22-12 show from the archive.
Finally, if any of you are attending the Sewing & Stitchery Expo in February this year, come and say hi! I’m going to be chatting a bit about Urban Threads and social media as part of the Schmetz Bloggers Conference, as well as demonstrating how awesome machine embroidery can be. It’s a BIG sewing event and I would just love to meet some of you in person.
I hope to see you there!
