I have a captivating project on my sewing table right now, and it was hard to set it down for a bit! Can you relate? I love that we all have one major thing in common -- our love for sewing! CKC has a contest going on right now that focuses on the humorous side of sewing, fabric, patterns, habits, etc. So far the entries are downright hilarious! I can tell you more about the contest soon, but first let's take a look at the other happenings from this past week.
On Monday we released Everlee's Open Back Dress & Maxi, featuring an all new bodice design here at CKC!
