Well, ladies, it's coming on time to wrap up this FUN swap. Love, love, LOVE all the cute aprons I'm seeing so far. If you haven't yet, be sure to post YOUR fabric, pattern selections, and/or completed packages before you mail. We are now in the mailing window - already!!! Apron packages MUST be mailed by the end of this weekend. One of the most luxurious apron shops online, D-Lux 57, is interested in helping you make your deadline.
I first heard of D-Lux 57 a couple of years ago when I won one of Cynthia's fresh aprons over at The Apronista. I LOVE how each apron comes with its own matching keepsake fabric envelope/pouch. It's a little touch that is SO sweet!
I asked Cynthia to share a little about herself with us:
When Cynthia Berman created D-Lux 57 3 years ago, she was looking to design a product that had a longer shelf life than the fashion industry she had been designing in for many years. Her grandmother had been a quilter and the fabrics Cynthia chooses for her aprons remind her of her childhood days spent rummaging through her grandmother’s quilting attic. D-Lux 57 is really a “comfort food” of sorts for design. Aprons remind us of our past and create new memories for the future.
Cynthia is a big supporter of American made products. D-Lux 57 aprons are sewn in southern California and shipped around the world. The aprons are packaged in an original matching keepsake envelope, perfect for gifting, storage or heirlooming. The lined aprons are available in women’s, tween and little cooks sizes. For the children sizes, she encourages the customer to take lots of photos of the children cooking in their apron with mom, grandma or siblings. When they outgrow the apron, fold it up and store it in the keepsake envelope with the photos and their favorite recipes. It will be the perfect heirloom to share when the little ones are grown.
One of the best things about D-Lux 57 is all the people and stories Cynthia has had the opportunity to meet and hear. Also, she supports some of her favorite charities through her sales such as the Junior League and the National Charity League. She also found a way to put her scrap fabrics to good use . She donates bags of fabric pieces to Maryvale Orphage for Girls in the Los Angeles area. The girls put the fabrics to good use in their sewing programs for quilting , doll making and other crafts.
Aprons are more than a piece of fabric. Their ties connect our generations and memories together.
