The Friday Blog Round-Up 3/26/10

posted in Uncategorized |

For those who are unfamiliar with this series, I try to do a round-up every Friday of blog posts I’ve found helpful during the past week.   Mostly I stick with the blogs on our blogroll.  If you have a blog you would like us to consider including on our blogroll, you can always leave a comment here, or e-mail me at kristine dot shreve at myenmart dot com.

Now on with the round-up.

I love a good machine embroidery tip and have given out more than one on this very blog.  Apparently I’m not the only one dispensing advice.  Kathy at the Common Threads blog has a great post which offers some machine embroidery tips and tricks.

Kathleen from Fashion Incubator brings us a tool for calculating fabric use.   Apparently it is an Iphone App which allows you to figure out yardage conversions.  If you have an Iphone and you embroider, this may be worth checking out.

Sewing for Cash has a post about some great ideas for ways to display your work and promote your business.  From digital keychains to digital photo frames that run videos to using photos on your cellphone,  this post suggests some neat ways to display your wares.   Technology really is amazing.

If you’re looking for some cool promo items or giveaways for Earth Day, check out Tim from ASI’s latest blog post.   Some of these ideas are pretty cool, but I don’t think I’d be up for receiving an elephant poo notebook.  I’m all for Earth friendly items, but I draw the line at anything made of poo.

As some of you may already know, EnMart exhibited at the NNEP Embroidery Mart this past weekend.  It was a great show and we had a great time meeting our customers and educating people about EnMart.  In addition to being a great place to meet suppliers and learn new things, the show also apparently does a lot of good.  The Do Duds Apparel Drive generated 960 pounds of clothing and other items which were donated to women’s shelters in 9 locations across the country.   I think that’s pretty awesome.

Finally, I wanted to introduce a new blog that’s been added to our blogroll.  It’s not specifically about embroidery, but it does have a quirky sense of humor that I enjoy.  The blog is Odd Guy Art.  If you have a second, check it out.
