The New Year is upon us! Happy New Year to All!

I can't beleive it's been another year. I am so pleased to say that Sew Me Memory has had a great year. I've met so many fabulous new customers and spent time creating items for my regulars. I'm greatful for you all!

I've got 2 major goals for 2011! Here they are!

More inventory: During the many shows I attended in 2010, I had a lot of requests for more sizes. I took hundreds of orders for items I did not have in stock. I hope to more than double my inventory for every show I do in 2011. More sizes in most items so I have something for everyone to take home. I will still take orders, but hopefully I will be able to fulfill most request during the shows.

Larger Sizes:  Many of you have requested larger sizes. I'm glad to hear that the older girls, in their tweens and teens are looking for fun, cheerful clothing to wear. I will be adding several items in Junior sizes. I will also be adding some adult sizes. Skirts and Reversible Swing Jackets for starters.

Wishing you all a fabulous 2011! And Thank You again for your support!

Oh well, times have changed and kids come in all shapes and sizes.....and so does my clothing line. Sizes 0-3 months to plus sizes, and everything in between. Keep watching. I'll be posting some of my new items very soon.
