The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Amy Butler Sew Inspiring Contest – Update

Thanks for all your comments and early entries to the Amy Butler Sew Inspiring Contest! We listened to you and we’re happy to announce that we’re now opening up the contest to participants outside the US and Canada, there are no geographic restrictions on entries. Apologies also for not being more clear on what we mean by an ‘Amy Butler Inspired Bag’, we wanted to keep it pretty open to interpretation but to clarify, people may use one of Amy’s patterns, her fabric, or just make something that was inspired by her very distinct style. Amy’s style reminds us of Sunday morning trips to the flea market, vintage fabric, sunny Spring afternoons, and casual comfort. But that’s just us– you could be inspired by her in a different way, if you aren’t familiar with Amy and her designs poke around her site at and then get to sewing! Link.
