Scented Holiday Projects
For quick-to-make gifts or new ornaments to add to a holiday tree, there are easy projects to sew with the aromatic scents of the season.
Scrappy Fabric Ideas from A to Z
Finding ways to use the inevitable scraps of leftover fabric is as much a joy as finally finishing the larger sewing projects from which scraps are born.
September is National Sewing Month
Whether you sew to express personal creativity, for economic necessity, or for charitable contributions, sewing has a long storied tradition. September is officially recognized as National Sewing Month!
Sew for Baby
Soft fabric sewn together with love can make an enduring gift for any baby. Most baby items are quick and easy to make to show you care and to welcome a new little one.
As we sew today, consider sewing ‘green,’ mindful of a concept of sustainable sewing – one that is heedful of and practical for our planet.
Sewing with plaids need not be frustrating. Simple matching of horizontal and vertical lines at every seam opening - side seams and the front notch on the arm scythe, for any patch pockets, pocket flaps, and welts, plus pinning and hand basting every seam, every time, ensures great results.
Sewing for a College Dorm Room
Most colleges inform incoming dorm room freshman to bring only the essential items at the beginning of the semester, however the dorm room will be home for most of the upcoming school year so it is nearly essential to make it comfortable from the start.
Sewing for a Perfect Fit
Sewing clothing items whether for yourself, a toddler, teen, mature figure, hard-to-fit body contours or challenging physical circumstances, you have the opportunity, finally, to have some say in how the finished garment is going to fit the body.
Sewing for Your Canine Friends
Sewing for wo/man’s best friend is as much fun as sewing stuffed and dressed whimsical animals and toys for children. Colorful fabrics, small bits of loopy-tape, grosgrain ribbon, and bias binding go a long way to dressing up any loving canine companion.
Sewing Machine Thread Jams
It happens to all machine sewers - you're sewing your fabric and all of a sudden your machine seems to stop advancing and jam just at the machine's throat plate. You find your needle and bobbin threads in a knotted bunch at the fabric seam just under the presser foot. Probable cause and solutions!
