Welcome The Sewing Directory!

I'm really thrilled to introduce you to my very first sponsor, The Sewing Directory run by the lovely Fiona Pullen.

I'm sure that lots of you are familiar with this great site - if not, you should definitely pop over and explore it.

Fiona launched  The Sewing Directory at The Sewing For Pleasure show in March 2010.  The idea for the site came about when she was trying to promote her mum's sewing business online and realised that although there were craft directories and general business directories there was nothing dedicated purely to sewing.  Also, someone looking for a sewing supplier or local sewing class can take a long time trawling through search engines, so she decided to bring it all together into one place.

Although the original plan was purely for a directory it quickly evolved into a more rounded site with projects, how to guides, inteverviews, competitions, sewing news, offers, sales and workshop listings too.  To get the most from the site it's best to follow it on Facebook and Twitter for extra news, offers and links which aren't on the site. 

The Sewing Directory is also running the  Sewing Blogger Awards at the moment, with nominations closing on 31st January. If you haven't already voted for your favourite sewing blog (hint, hint!), click on the link above to go register your entry.

The Sewing Directory are also keen sponsors of many sewing blogs, now including mine! So please do pop over to visit them, you won't be sorry :-)

I now have a limited number of sponsorship slots available. If you are interested in sponsoring FairyFace Designs, please contact me at fairyfacedesigns (at) gmail (dot) com

Thank you so much for introducing your new sponsor!! I'm just getting back into sewing but had no idea where to go for supplies (I'm from California but live in Bershire now...with no car). The timing of this post could not have been more perfect!! Thank you again (oh...and I'm heading over to the Sewing Directory right now to vote for you!)
