Here is where I will share sewing tips and sewing resources. You’ll also find my index of sewing projects. We enjoy sharing online sewing resources that I’ve come across to help the sewist needing answers to questions. They will be categorized below. I hope you find this page helpful for your sewing projects. I will be updating this page often as I come across articles, videos and posts that will help with sewing.
I feel that once you have the basics of sewing down that you will find sewing gets easier and easier, especially with sewing tips from others. Whether you sew from a pattern or draft up your own patterns; this page will be where you can find helpful sewing tips and information, tutorials, inspiration and resources for your sewing.
I fell in love with sewing while sitting by as a child watching my grandma sew. She kept me busy until I was old enough to learn by sorting buttons, threading needles for her and going on shopping trips to pick out fabrics. Coming from a frugal household on a limited budget sewing can prove to be an invaluable skill. Whether you are sewing for pleasure or a need, I hope you find this page helpful.
