We have another SPECTACULAR sponsor to introduce you to today!!  Can you believe we have Girl Charlee to offer??  Girl Charlee is one of the *premier* places to buy knits online.  Heather offers knit, and only knit, so as you can imagine, her inventory is fabulous.  Stripes, prints, solids, chevrons and more can be found at Girl Charlee.  Before we discovered Girl Charlee, we had often thought there was a huge gap in the market for amazing knits.  Well, she's filled that void!

We asked Heather to let us in on her how she got started, and what Girl Charlee is all about.  Here is what she has to say:

Girl Charlee was born from a love of vintage fabrics and started as a children's clothing line in 2006. After learning first hand how hard it is to find quality knit fabrics that are soft, have just the right hand and stretch, and are not prints that you have seen everywhere else, the idea of creating a fabric store that specializes in knit only and Girl Charlee Fabrics was launched!  I only source fabrics of the highest quality and offer them for the lowest possible prices. We offer only the highest quality hand selected cotton lycra, cotton jersey, cotton ribbed and other specialty knits along with exclusive prints from our own Girl Charlee Fabrics.  We will be expanding our product range to include knit specific sewing patterns by independent designers as well as our own pattern line in early 2013.

Lets check out a few of her amazing knits in (eek!) Chevron and Stretch Ruffles!

Here is what Girl Charlee has planned for 2013:

Our blog launch is in January. We are offering tutorials on sewing with knits as well as feature spotlights on customers, vendor partners, and more!
Knit Patterns.  Will be partnering with select independent sewing pattern designers to offer sewing patterns for sale specifically for knits.  Will also be releasing the Girl Charlee line of sewing patterns for knits in mid 2013.
New Girl Charlee Fabric collection arriving soon is called Lodestar.  These six new unique designs have a little something for everyone, including three new colors of our famous Girl Charlee chevron print in Eggplant, Deep Teal, and Chartreuse on both cream and white cotton jersey blend knits. The Lodestar Floral is a gorgeous modern intricate design that melds all our palette and is the perfect scale for all applications and includes a coordinating fuchsia with cream dot and 1/2" Teal and Chartreuse stripe on a lux cotton spandex.
In February we will be offering our Making Strides Pink Chevron on White and Pink Chevron on Pink from which we will be donating part of the proceeds of every sale to breast cancer research.

Christi- If they are on sale I would strongly sggseut you get one! I love the one I have. There are a couple of differences from the traditional form you should know 1. Joanne’s forms are a lot more flimsy feeling than non-adjustable forms just because they are hollow with a mechanism inside, but I have not had any problems with mine.2. Joanne’s are great for making clothes of all different sizes because they are adjustable, but they don’t have collapsible shoulders. Sometimes I have to tighten all of the parts together just to get a dress off of the shoulders. But being able to make the form a specific size outweighs that problem for me. I have been a bit worried about the flimsy-feeling of the form, but I have not had any problem with it so far. And I LOVE that it is completely adjustable!
