New Key Fob Colors:

Westie Terrier Text Filled Key Fob, Purse Charm

Add a little Westitude to your key chain or purse! The word "Westie" fills the terrier shaped head and body and I just love the way the ear tips complete the "W" and that the tail extends above the 'i". In addition to the introductory White and Black options, these adorable key fobs are now available in Blue and Red! Other colors can be custom ordered by request.

Countdown to Mother's Day has begun!

Mothers Day

The annual Countdown to Mother's Day hosted by Julie of Blue Morning Expressions has begun! Each weekend, a variety of artisans share their handmade creations in a link-up at Julie's blog, The Blu Print. You'll find wonderful, unique gift ideas for Mother's Day or any occasion in each week's collection. The countdown usually spans 8 or 9 weeks leading up to Mother's Day in the USA, which is celebrated this year on May 13, 2018.

Participating shop owners also share each item on various social media platforms. I'll be sharing the blog hop link-up over on my SewAmazin's Studio blog, will pin each item to my Mother's Day Countdown board on Pinterest and will share on Twitter throughout each week using hashtags #bmecountdown and #MothersDay (follow me at SewAmazin on Twitter).

Happy Keli's Birthday!

Our sassy senior Westie is turning Sweet Sixteen today! Isn't that amazing? She would have preferred to be outside soaking up the sun, but since we're getting slammed by a snowy nor'easter, we're spending a quiet day inside. I'm planning to bake some special treats this afternoon and we'll plan an outing for her later this month when it's warmer.

St Patricks Day and Keli's Sweet 16 | SewAmazin

► In honor of Keli's birthday, our Birthday, Party and Mardi Gras Dog Bandanas and Pet Ruffles are on sale through March 31, 2018.

I've added yet another Westie key fob to our dog breed line-up! The word "Westie" fills the terrier shaped head and body and I just love the way the ear tips complete the "W" and that the tail extends above the 'i". This design is currently available in White with black text or Black with white text, but could easily be made in other custom color combinations.

► All of our dog breed key fobs are made using machine embroidery designs that have been purchased and licensed from various digitizers and designers; I don't digitize the designs myself. I currently have this text-filled style for Westies only. Additional breeds can be added by request, if I can locate a suitable embroidery design.

December 2017 News

December 2017 News | SewAmazin

Happy Holidays from all of us at SewAmazin - Keli, Penny and I would like to thank all of our customers and friends for supporting us this past year!

And what a year it has been! It doesn't seem possible, but we celebrated Keli's 15th and Penny's 10th birthdays in 2017. We added over 40 new items to our shop since March and cross-posted ready-to-ship and clearance items to Etsy. We donated bandanas, ruffles and other accessories to nearly a dozen Westie, Scottie and other rescue groups through fundraising auctions on Facebook, as well as donated part of each item sold to either WestieMed, RBARI or CFA.

We look forward to another challenging, fun and productive year in 2018!

What's new this month?  Our newest Christmas and Winter bandanas were shared in a previous blog post. Since then, many of our ready-to-ship gifts and accessories for dog lovers and cat fanciers have been reduced in price for the holidays and can be found in the clearance section of our shop and SewAmazin on Etsy.

We also managed to add one last pair of new pet neckwear in November/December:

Red Royal Stewart Tartan Plaid

This traditional plaid is a great choice for your dog or cat for Christmas, holiday photos and visits to Santa Claws! 

It replaces our Classic Red Tartan Plaid, which is sold out and no longer available. The colors and scale of both woven plaids are very similar, but the new fabric is 100% cotton homespun instead of a metallic blend.

Good news - Bandanas made in this new version red tartan plaid can also be personalized with your pet's name in embroidery!

Both the bandana and scrunchie ruffle have been very popular since we first introduced them and we have almost sold out of our first batch of this fabric. We expect to have it back in stock by December 10. Back in stock today, December 9
