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.
A small compact travel sewing kit with a variety of sewing notions can come to the rescue for most fashion mishaps. Commonplace sewing kits are prosaic reminders of the nuts and bolts of sewing.
Sewing Machine Dust Covers
A cover for your sewing machine or serger will protect the investment in your machine or preserve the hard-working parts of a cherished hand-me-down so that they continue to function well. Dust covers are easy to sew or even no-sewing required.
Sewing Machine Presser Feet
Whether you are learning to sew, returning to sew, or a long-time sewing enthusiast, the use of specialized presser feet that are available for your type sewing machine can make your sewing project quite unique as well as speed along your sewing efforts.
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!

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.
