Last post was in March 2013.  Wow – has it really been since March?  Sorry about that, things have been rather crazy and busy around here.
So, I am currently redesigning our blog – so bear with me as the changes are being made and excuse the dust, it’s a construction project in progress!  I hope to use it more once I finish it!
South for Winter is now strictly a mother/daughter team!  My daughter, Alexis, has been on board since the beginning – but, it’s OFFICIAL, she is my business partner and contributor of items such as loop bracelets and artwork drawings!  I still do 100% of the sewing, but she is helping by learning the ropes – cutting fabric, how to interface, etc!  She is going to be such a big help as there are times when demand is more than I can handle alone {that’s a good thing!}
There’s lots of goodness happening over on our Facebook page – if you’re not a fan, you should be! { click here }
I love blogging, and honestly I will try hard to fit it in the schedule more!  Soon, I will have a contest opportunity again – I’m working hard to make it happen!
That’s what’s up at South for Winter as of today!
Creatively Yours,
Christina Moran, Owner/Designer

We have new products – here’s a couple, check them out!

Custom Everlasting Wreaths   Catalog Keepers 

NEW – Patterned Handles & Sleeve Loops!

We now offer custom made totes in small, medium, large, and x-large!  Also, we are now making Sleeve Loops to keep rolled sleeves from falling while playing softball, sports, or during workouts!  Here is a chart of available patterns!  

For totes, we prefer to use solid colors that match the fabric pattern used – but any of these are available for use with the sleeve loops! 🙂


Name of pattern is found above the thumbnail on the chart.

Fabric and thread and bobbins – oh my!

A sewing machine has been added to the list of South for Winter creative team’s tools!  The poor thing has gotten it’s workout in the last couple of weeks, that’s for sure!  Dresses, totes, and more have been spinning out of control from the machine like a whirlwind of fabric and thread!  Another new item was added to the mix – Swarovski crystals!  We’ve been adding them to just about everything for that extra boost of sparkle!

We will be adding these custom pieces and so much more to our Etsy shop very soon!  The most comfortable dress & mom top you will ever own has already been listed – check it out!

Here’s some samples of what’s to come in our shop – they will be available for custom orders as well as what you see here! 🙂
