Jeni from Handmade Love is showing how one woman's passion can turn the facebook handmade community into a big business . Jeni has the whole package over at her website which includes a place to advertise your handmade businesses, a directory of all things handmade and a blog to read about handmade business.
        So it's really a whole lot of HANDMADE LOVE!!!!.

I found the lovely Jeni, last year she did a Sophie Moda Showcase and was overwhelmed by the coverage I recieved.
The Showcases are now bi annual and allows small businesses to wait for the fabric collection to be chosen. Its then on, to search the worldwide web for the fabric and maybe send international fabric companies into sending ALOT more parcels downunder. The showcase allows any businesses to participate as long as its handmade and showcases the fabric collection. The showcase has been divided up into girls, boys and womens albums to allow a bigger range of goodies. 

Vintagebubbles entry was designed around using 'the British are coming' perfect for the upcoming Olympics and Queens's Jubliee. The best thing about the showcase is you are able to combine a entry with other small businesses.

We recently welcomed our 1st baby, Annalee to our family and she is our most cutest little button!! After many years working of working for other companies and dreaming from working from home, we took the plunge last year and decided to see if we could make it work. We could have never imagined the wonderful response we received sharing our handmade buttons with the world. We are thrilled to be able to live our dream, raise our family together and work at home doing what we love!

Each photo shoot is individually thought out, hand crafted and delivered with heart and soul. My dream is for you is to love the experience, embrace each and every image and to treasure those moments for life.

All these small businesses are on facebook and show the diversity that one collection of fabric can create. Most are created as one of a kind pieces which makes them a wanted item.

Now down to business and the showcase details..........
Fabric Theme is Michael Miller Indigo Red featuring fabric collections Weekend Clubhouse & The British are Coming.  Navy, Red and Beige are the main colours in the collections great for boys wear yet pretty enough for the princesses in our lives.
