Really like the feel of two logo designs used on the current front page of 99designs web page. These are for 'Laura Rauch' and 'Cosmic Thimble', (loved the straight sewing needle incorporated into the design, however I'm very wary of a threaded needle logo, as it's been done).
Like the tree idea (symbolising growth and learning) and love the multi-coloured designs, makes me think of fabric stashes, thread shade cards etc. Perhaps the leaves could be buttons and ribbons?
Do not want a slogan incorporated, but my idea is playing on the 'More' so: More Sewing... more fabric, more ribbons, more trims... (as a sort of tag line for windows, advertising etc.)
