Welcome to The Wonderful World of Vogue Fabrics

Hi, I have always felt that creating a blog would be a fun idea in the hopes of keeping our customers and fans of the store up to date with what's new and happening in the store's, online, in the catalogs, and on the road. I hope you keep you entertained as well as informed to what's new in sewing, fabrics, fashion, notions, and anything else that I find interesting or worth posting.

I don't plan on posting sewing tips or my latest fashion creations. That would not be my strength and definitely wouldn't be that entertaining.

What I want to bring to you is a behind look at what it is like being involved in the fashion and fabric industry. My family has been involved in tailoring, sewing, and fabric for 5 generations going back to 'the old country' in Russia, Germany, and Poland. Vogue was opened by my grandfather in 1945, and we are now well into our third generation of family ownership. We are constantly trying to reinvent ourselves as less people sew their own clothing. I want to keep people sewing and interested in fabric and fashion, to do that I will share my perspective and adventures with you. I'll let you in on what we at Vogue refer to as our little soap opera "As the Bolt Turns".

Next Blog Notes: The ASG Convention is in Chicago.
