Sewing with Felted Wool
As the warmest days of summer are replaced with the cooler days of autumn, thoughts turn to back to school days, upcoming harvest fairs and fall festivities. A great time to bring out the woolen garments of prior cold seasons that may no longer fit well but may still have a useful recycled life.

Sewing with Plaids
Plaids have always had a traditional strong presence for the fall and winter seasons. From the many customary tartan plaids of the Scottish Highlands to the red, black, camel and white English Burberry signature design – plaids are a very distinct and memorable style maker.

Sewing with Selvages
Sewers have often been instructed by pattern layout details to not use the fabric selvage edge, a word combined from self-edge, which was expected to be cut off and discarded. These factory loomed finished edges today no longer fill the waste basket or cutting room floor but have surprising uses.

Sewing Zippers
Applying a zipper, either centered, lapped or ´invisible´ needn’t be a difficult sewing process.

Sewing's Past Connected to Modern Computing
A tapestry-like woven fabric popular in the early 1800s that we know today as jacquard, has a special connection to sewing and our modern computing world.

Smart Fabrics
Fabric continues to serve humankind in so many ways. Where once fabric clothed, decorated and sheltered people in ways utilitarian to high art, fabric now entertains and delights in new ways.

Square Up Fabric Yardage
There are a few ways to square up or true up a piece of woven fabric, an often necessary part of sewing. This means that the warp and the weft threads are running as expected, perpendicular to each other.

Sun Printing on Fabric
Capture the beauty of summer’s emerging bounty of botanic plants, flowers, leaves, and delicate ferns by using the sun to “print” them onto fabric. The result is a cyanotype that can be sewn into many unique and individual items.

Sustainable Sewing
Sewing in a sustainable way combines the tradition of one of the oldest of crafts with the knowledge and tools of today's modern technologies. Knowing that living and working with care for the environment, economy and community ensures an enduring legacy for future generations.

The Business of Sewing
Sewing, as a home-based or cottage industry, is part of the growing legion of service businesses. If you have contemplated starting your own business and have more than competent sewing skills, you may be able to transform a hobby into a profitable business.
