Happy Thanksgiving if you are in the US. And for every single one of you who chooses to spend some of your time here with me, THANK YOU! I am so grateful for you.
I did not know if I was going to write a Black Friday sewing deals post. Black Friday has some pretty negative connotations—and it is not undeserved. Companies exploit their employees, dragging them to work instead of allowing them to spend time with family. Crowds stampede into stores at 5 AM, leaving a trail of material and human damage behind them. It is a system created to fuel consumerism and materialism at the expense of people.
But then, I read the letter Caroline Somos, owner of Blackbird Fabrics, wrote to her customers, and I read and heard from other small online companies, and a new picture emerged. Somos’s letter explained the importance of Black Friday sales to the health of her small company. This is a sentiment that I have seen shared by other small online companies.
It is in this spirit that I share the Black Friday sewing deals below. These are small companies I have purchased from before or will be purchasing, and for all I know, treat their employees with dignity and respect. And if you know of any reason why any of these companies should not be on this list, please let me know.
