Sew Dandee is heading to Wolseley, #Winnipeg!

This Saturday I'll be setting up my wares at the Annual Fall Sale at R.A. Steen Community Centre from 10am to 4pm along with a whole bunch of other local makers and it would be great to see your awesome faces there! Come on down to 980 Palmerston and hang out and pick up some handmade treasures!
And if you're looking to get some shirts or other items silk screened with one of my MANY designs, this is a great opportunity to drop off your item to pick up at a later date. We've still got plenty of time to get something made for a gift for the holidays!

I've been meaning to do a post about a lovely wee blurb in the CAA Magazine, Going Places that came out recently that mentioned Sew Dandee but with some misinformation. Just to clear things up, the photo is actually showing my dish towels, not my t-shirts and I don't actually have any of my items available at Silver Lotus. A bit of miscommunication with the writer of the article, unfortunately. That being said, I do still offer custom silk screening of my designs on t-shirts as well as tote bags, pillow cases, you name it! You supply the items you want to be silk screened and I adorn said item with one of my designs of your choosing! Easy peasie!
So, do make a trip down to Silver Lotus and check out their beautiful shop but if you're looking to get some of my work, just pop down to the Exchange Uporium or Generation Green at the Forks or send me a direct email at sewdandee at gmail dot com and I'll take care of you.

Tiz the season!

Well, the snow is on the ground, the air is crisp and the decorations are up! There's no denying it. The holiday season is here! Whether you're a fan of all the hoopla that goes along with Christmas or you loath all things Xmas related, it's always the time of the year to treat yourself or a loved one to something handmade, don't ya think?? I sure do!
So, if you're looking for a great gift or something for yourself, I hope you'll give my Etsy shop a gander (I ship worldwide, my friends!) or head down to the Exchange Uporium which is now extended until December 30th for all your pre and post holiday shopping needs or come find me at the R.A. Steen Community Centre Fall Sale this coming Saturday Nov. 22nd from 10am to 4pm at 980 Palmerston in Wolseley or you can always find my dish towels, aprons, onesies, cards and much more at Generation Green at the Forks.
If it's just my cards including my awesome selection of holiday cards featuring some of the best quotes from A Christmas Story, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation and Elf as well as my own personal Christmassy inspired cards like 'I'm dreaming of a white Christmas! Is that racist??' and 'Santa vs. Jesus. Who will win the battle this year?' and many more, you can find them at Tara Davis Studio Boutique and I now have a selection of my silk screened dish towels and cards available at Chocolatier Constance Popp in St. Boniface.

And if you need to get that party dress altered or those dress pants hemmed, I'm still your girl for all things fixy! Just pop me an email at sewdandee at and let me know what you need. We can arrange a pick up and drop off that is convenient for you so don't hesitate to get in touch with any alteration, mending or custom sewing requests you might have.

Spread the handmade word!

Let the craft sale season BEGIN, #Winnipeg!

I just wanted to pass along some info on where you can find me and my snarky goods in case you're looking for some cool handmade gifts for the holidays (and for YOU, of course!)
Next weekend I'll be set up at the WEST Handmade and Vintage Sale VI in St. Boniface at Holy Cross Gymnasium from 11 to 4pm on Saturday November 8th. You can get more info here on the Winnipeg Etsy Street Team (aka WEST) blog if you want to see what some of the other makers will be bringing.
Then I'll be at the R. A. Steen Fall Sale on Saturday November 22nd from 10am to 4pm in Wolseley at R.A. Steen Community Centre at 980 Palmerston. This will be my first time doing this sale but I hear it's a great one.
Then my final sale is on a Wednesday, December 3rd from 9am to 3pm at the Hydro Building on Portage Ave. with the 5th Annual Festive Artisan Market put on by the Manitoba Craft Museum and Library. You can check out some images of the other vendors that will be there on their website here.
And as you may already know, I've had a spot set up at the pop up shop in the Exchange District, Exchange Uporium since the beginning of October and will be there until the end of December. This spot has the most of my stock on hand including all of my onesies, pins and magnets, dish towels, cards and aprons. It's open seven days a week from 11:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Saturday, Fridays until 6pm (First Fridays of every month until 9pm) and Sundays noon to 5pm. It's located at 264 McDermot between King and Arthur. I've also got a bunch of my items at Generation Green at The Forks, Chocolatier Constance Popp and my cards are at Tara Davis Studio Boutique.
Do let me know if there's anything you need me to make, mend or silk screen for you as these craft sales and the Exchange Uporium are all great meet up spots to pick up and drop off any custom work so pop me an email at sewdandee at gmail dot com and we'll make it happen!
Hope to see you all soon and spread the handmade word!
