Sew a Garden Flag
Welcome visitors and friends with a garden flag to hang from a wrought iron garden flag pole, wall bracket, or mailbox. These celebratory flags add welcoming visual interest to home, garden or business and provide an extra display of color and whimsy for any outdoor space.
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.
Sew with Summer Tropical Flair
Sewing for summer weather with airy and breezy cottons, linen types, hand-dyed batiks, Swiss batiste, and brightly colored tropical prints with vibrant coordinating solids all bring to mind those visions of barefoot living and dreamy seaside cabana suppers.
Sewing and Color’s Influence
Color subtly influences our perception of the world around us. Sewers may use this influence in fabric choices to evoke a desired response - blue tones are identified as cooling whereas reds are considered warming. Perceptions and reactions to color are myriad across age, gender, and culture.
Sewing and Serging Machines
In an almost perfect marriage of practical function and elegant efficiency the sewing machine and its machine sewing companion, the serger, combine to give the home sewer the best of all possible sewing worlds.
Sewing Children's Classic Toys
Sock monkeys, raggedy dolls, bunnies and bears, oh my! Sewing huggable stuffed toys for children for gift-giving or just-because is a delightful, surprisingly satisfying undertaking and serves as a message of love and caring to the recipient.
A collaborative blend of art and science, high-style, individualized attention, superior workmanship, originality of design, perfection of fit, and materials of extraordinary quality are the hallmarks of a garment sewn couture.
Instantly familiar, endlessly versatile, at once old and new, the fabric we know as denim and the many clothes, accessories, and home items it has so readily adapted to, has enjoyed steady popularity since the mid 1800s.
