Five!

True Up is five years old today! Clearly I had done my taxes early in 2008 because no way I would have picked this day otherwise. It has been quite a journey, many ups and downs, and though things are leaner than they once were, and maybe blogging and RSS and forums are dead or [...]

Meet the Sponsors: nido

  Phiona, owner of Burlington, Vermont-based nido always closes her emails with “warmly,” and warmth perfectly encapsulates her shop. The brick-walled retail store and sewing hub just turned three years old (and had an enviable party!), and just visiting the online branch gives a sense of comfort, coziness, openness, and inspiration. She carries the finest modern fabrics [...]

Giveaway: Modernology by Art Gallery Fabrics

Art Gallery Fabrics‘ newest collection is Modernology, designed of course by Pat Bravo. This may be my favorite collection of hers yet.
