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.

Sewing, Piece by Piece
For the novice stitcher sewing elemental pieces to fashion into placemats, table runners or colorful wall hangings to the most skilled fiber artist who has mastered the techniques of cutting, piecing, stitching, and assembling into an astonishing design, patchwork has an appeal to many.

Simple Sewing Kits
With little time to sew and busy holidays approaching, searching for just the right gift to give to a sewing enthusiast, traveling friend, college student, charitable outreach or work colleague, among others, may be a challenge. Crafting a compact sewing kit may be just the right thoughtful gift.

Simple T-Shirt Makeovers
The comfortable-to-wear, go-everywhere casual unisex top is hands down the T-shirt. Modern day tees have become the equivalent of walking product advertisements, designer name branding and for sending personal messages about the wearer’s politics, social attitudes, sports, music and much more.

Simple Window Coverings
Unless the private unfettered view when looking out from a window is one of contemplative serenity - a serene pastoral scene, perhaps rippling waves at the edge of a pristine lake or of majestic snow-covered mountains, most windows benefit from some type of covering or enhancement.

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.

Smocking as Embellishment
Smocking in its simplest description is embroidery over even, tiny gathered pleats of fabric. It is a fine needle art form for garment decoration usually seen on sleeves, yokes, and bodice fronts with origins now obscure.

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.
