Something new I noticed this summer.... our local farmer's market has become extremely popular. Partly due to more publicity, some fun tasting events, and many of us no longer have home gardens. I'm seeing a "Back to basics, natural, and organic" trend in our area. The young families are also consignment and thrift store shopping like I have never seen before! I love that some of old ways are becoming popular again and am waiting to see how it impacts the sewing industry.
