Interview with XO Gigi Fabrics + Giveaway... {Giveaway Closed}

Last month, I had the pleasure of introducing you to one of my newest sponsors, XO Gigi Fabrics.  

So this month, I thought I'd interview Gigi, so that we could find out a little bit more about what it's like behind the scenes when you own a fabric shop.  I'd imagine that if I owned a fabric shop, it would involve loads of rolling around in lovely prints!!!




Is your name really Gigi?

Carmen is my real name, but Gigi is my favourite of the two.  My grand babies named me Gigi. 

Let me tell you a little secret.  When the babies were little I always made their baby blankets and I wanted them to know it was from their Gigi.  So, I made some labels that said: Xo, Gigi. When I decided to open the shop I thought it would be appropriate to call it: Xo, Gigi Fabrics.




When did your love for fabrics begin?
I have always been fascinated by colour and texture.  I'm not sure I can put a date on this addiction of mine.  I will tell you that the first time I saw Amy Butler fabrics I started getting a little more obsessed with fabrics.  I think I placed an order on line for about 30 different yards of her prints.  I didn't order them because I had a plan for them, I just wanted to make sure they would be part of MY stash.  Till this day I still have some of them and I find it quite difficult to part with them (lol).   

I have to tell you something, on days when I am in the cutting room at our shop I find myself saying “ Oh, I love this one” and my assistant Becky always says “ Um, you already said that earlier today several times”.  So, I find that it is best if I don’t cut fabrics because I will come home with another stash (lol).

When you find the time to fit a bit of sewing in, what would you say is your favourite kind of project?
Because my time is limited, I am a one hour project girl.  I like sewing fast and seeing the fruits of my labour on the same day.  I love sewing for my family.  As you know, every Gigi has grand babies and I must sew for them.  My favourite would be for my sweet Lexie.  She is 6 right now and she so appreciates everything I make for her.  Her mama told me the other day “ Mom, I counted Lexi's skirts and you have made her over 30 skirts, Please, no more”.  So, I have now moved on to making her more pyjamas!

I do love making myself skirts and purses.  They are so much fun and are always a great conversation piece when you go out and about. 

When you're not playing with all of those gorgeous fabrics, what are you doing?
Most of my customers don’t know this, but I am a fitness instructor and love to teach a mean cycling class.  

I am also a professional photographer.  I love capturing images of brand new babies in their mama’s arms.  My husband and  I love to fish, mountain bike and kayak.  And then their is sewing and crafting.  I must create several times a week or I am at a complete loss. 

Who are your favourite designers?
Oh, dear!  That is a hard question. I love the simplicity of Ann Kelle.  Her style is so modern and so clean.  It’s just wonderful for little ones.  

Michael Millers House Designers is probably on the top of my list.  Theirs are timeless and are just classical pieces in the sewing industry. Have you seen Plain Jane or Groovy Guitar? They are just fabulous.  

Joel Dewberry makes me drool.  I love all his florals.  I might have about two or three skirts with his prints.  Eek!  

I do dream about designing one day.  It would be just a bit of icing on my cake. 

Notting Hill Collection, Joel Dewberry


I don't know if I could decide, but is there one fabric collection available right now at XO Gigi Fabrics, that would be your favourite?

One! Seriously? eek! That is so hard. Hmmm... Chevrons

No. 2 Notting Hill by Joel Dewberry I couldn’t help myself. lol

Thank you Cass for interviewing me that was fun. 

Xo, Gigi


That was fun wasn't it!  

Wow!  Gigi is just gorgeous & one busy lady too!!!  

Did I mention that she's quite generous too?

Well she's given me another $40 voucher to pass on to one lucky reader again for December!

  7. I like can.dye garden in blueberry and cameras in black. i would maybe get some more chevron too. i would make a new dress for missy moo!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have a tank that I purchased from Kmart for dirt cheap that I love so much. They only got the one floral print in, so I have been looking everywhere for a nice woven fabric that I could make a copy with. I couldn't go past Historic Tile in Teal, as I love the colour! (My wardrobe is mainly teals and blues lol). Maybe I should go for the tangerine for a change? tough choice!

    My mind usually thinks of button up shirts for my boys, and I did think that Pirate Wheels in Gray would look super cool and a matching tie from Pirate Stripes in Blue. But I think I should put me first for once! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I am planning a sea/pirate themed quilt for my little boy so I would definitely use some of the Pirate Main in cream. I would love to make a cushion with Cameras in black.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'd love to make something for my husband - I never sew for him (except to hem or repair trousers!) I think he'd love something using the Robert Kaufman Cameras fabric.

    I'm ALREADY planning my Autumn/Winter tunics and these bright geometric prints would add a pop to the dreary season!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My choice would be Tartan in Aquamarine. I am designing a quilt of a scene that was my best friend and my first time hanging out together. Her brother and I were friends and she is 3 years younger. We were in their backyard playing on the trampoline and he had to go do homework so it was just her and I. We clicked right then and there, talking and laughing the afternoon away. The image and afternoon is as fresh in my mind as if it were yesterday. I haven't designed a quilt before so I'm mostly writing about it right now but I think this print would be nice in it. It looks like if you're under the trampoline and the sun is beaming thru.

    (Sorry if this has come up multiple times, technical difficulties on my side)
