sarahjanestudios I'm getting back from quilt market and getting back into "real" life. I posted last week about my childhood best friend of 28 years passed away from a sudden case of meningitis 12 days ago, two weeks shy of her 37th birthday. Becca taught me about true mothering and was the most amazing and dedicated mother I know. She homeschooled all her children, and taught them all to be independent and co-dependent at the same time. She and her husband were childhood sweethearts and at 14 knew they were meant for eachother. Her family is tight, strong, and believing. But they need our help. This week in my shop, 100% of proceeds will go to a fund for her kids. You can purchase from my shop at Sarahjanestudios.com or you can click on the link in my profile and donate directly to the family fund. Thank you. And if anything at all, let's all try to more dedicated mothers and wives this week. And always. That's the legacy we leave behind. #imissbecca #mothersliftingmothers 6h

  •   artbylynnemillar My parents were just telling me about this heartbreaking situation. What a kind gesture on your part. 56min
  •   3kidstravel My husband is a good childhood friend of Andrew, but I wish I had known her better. What I learned about her at her funeral make me want to be a better mother. Thank for doing this! 16min

sarahjanestudios WOW! Definitely feeling the "day after quilt market" crash today. A lot has happened in our lives this past week, and I'm so grateful for the wonderful people in our lives who have been present. When we discovered our trailer had been stolen Tuesday night, Wednesday brought on quite the day of hustling. Repainting. Rebuilding. Rebuying. Resewing. (The quilts and clothes thankfully were left out of the trailer) My husband got it all on video! It ended up being a magical day with so many who reached out to help. Thank you all for your support! #quiltmarket #sarahjanemagic #cantstealmymagic 20h

sarahjanestudios MAGIC fabric collection is "officially" launched and I'll be sharing a lot more photos with you over the next while! We made a short video for the launch as this played in my booth at #quiltmarket this past weekend. The fabric will be available in July, but it's available for pre-order at select online shops like @fatquartershop @hawthornethreads @southernfabric @muddyrufflesfabricaddiction in AU and fabric.com. It's selling fast so Make sure to order soon for on time delivery PS: knits and flannel coming this fall!! #sarahjanemagic (video by @jennerbrown_ ) 1d

sarahjanestudios What an Amazing Day! For those of you who aren't familiar with Quilt Market, it's a bi-annual international Tradeshow for fabric stores across the globe to make their purchases. It's always an amazing experience to meet and greet people who love this creative industry. Today was the first day of three amazing days! Thanks for all the support! It's been Magical! (Ps: see those wall decals?? Coming soon to the shop:) #cantstealmymagic #sarahjanemagic 4d

sarahjanestudios I believe in MAGIC!! 95% of everything in this photo was in our trailer when it was stolen on Tuesday. But thanks to amazing magical fairies most of it was all replicated in a full day's work. Whew! We did it!! If you are coming to quilt market, come visit booth #716 at Michael Miller Fabrics and say hello! More photos to come! You can steal pretty pillows but you #cantstealmymagic @michaelmillerfabrics 5d

sarahjanestudios YOU GUYS!!!! You are all unbelievable. We got here this morning after very little sleep as can be imagined and I wasn't even setting up for more than 10 minutes before Clare (who I've never met and don't know) had stuffed a HUGE box of Australian Cadbury Chocolates in her suitcase for us before she jumped on the plane... To cheer us up. I just teared up and I'm seriously BLOWN away by all the help and thoughts. We are almost done setting up our space and I'm so thrilled by the speed of how things have come together. I LOVE YOU ALL!! And PS: these Australian chocolates make me want to live in Australia!!!! #cantstealmymagic 5d
  •   makingofhome So many die hard @sarahjanestudios fabric lovers here in Australia. And we rise to a call to arms pretty well too. Or a call to comfort (chocolate) #samesame Glad to hear good has triumphed over evil. Can't wait to see your booth!!! 5d
  •   sarahjanestudios @makingofhome I think I need to plan a trip to Australia now:) 5d
  •   yirg52 Lol Cadbury is British so come to the UK but a lovely thing to do all the same 😀 5d
  •   makingofhome Well I guess I'd better get a wiggle on and finish my Sarah Jane smitten quilt, eh? 5d

sarahjanestudios Well, that was a Day! Having our huge trailer stolen with our entire quilt market booth and some of our products has been quite the curve ball. But I've been amazed at the outreach! You guys have been my superheroes!! I have someone who stuffed a dress form in her suitcase before catching a plane to quiltmarket, someone who was willing to sew a prop AGAIN in a matter of hours. Another IG follower who is lending me a bunch of things, and my pillow sewer who sewed all these pillows (that are now are in the possession of some trailer thieving dude) but she didn't even hesitate to sew 8 more in an afternoon, my dearest friend came and grabbed Anders at 7:45 barefoot and in his PJs (and then bought him shoes so he could play all day) My sister in law even came over to help to cut fabric even though she's never touched a rotary in decades...And on and on..... Little miracles and angels all day. I miraculously forgot to pack the quilts and clothes in the trailer 😇😇 and while we've had to redesign and rebuild the entire corner 10x10 foot space In a matter of hours , I think it will Come together! By a wish and a prayer. We lost A LOT. But because of this community, we have everything. We will be posting video and pics all weekend of the set up and space! And officially showing you ALL of what #sarahjanemagic can do! Stay tuned tomorrow for a fun giveaway game here locally in SLC! You can steal my #quiltmarketbooth but you #cantstealmymagic
stay tuned:)

sarahjanestudios So after a life altering weekend with every emotion you can imagine, our trailer full of our entire quilt market booth was stolen last night. Leave it to us to bring drama to the table!! Since quilt market set up starts today, it's a wee bit crazy miraculously a few key players were left out of the trailer and some things were already set in motion for us to still scramble to make this happen. Cops have been notified but there's no time to wait for that. It might be a rather simple space but we'll try to make it magical But oh boy, we could use some prayers:) When life throws you curveballs like losing your best friend of 28 years, and her family losing their mother and wife, losing a quilt market booth seems like a a piece of cake and a non-issue. Thanks for your thoughts about my sweet friend. It meant so much and appreciate this community that supports so well.
PS: If anyone has any dress forms sizes 6 mo - size 6/8 that we could use for the booth that would be incredible! DM me:) UPDATE: you guys!!! I just found all the quilts!!!!! Now just to rebuild a set in an afternoon . There are quilt market angels getting busy #cantstealmymagic
