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.

Hand-made vs. Machine-made
Sewing is a form of the verb, to sew, commonly to enclose or join securely with stitches while art is a noun giving us the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance. Imagine connecting both!

Using Piping or Cording
Much more than a decorative outline to garment seams or pillow edges, piping can ease the strain on finished fabric seams subject to much wear or minimize abrasion of seam edges on much used pillows or sofa cushions adding strength to seams and curvy corners as well.

Free Motion Sewing
Free motion sewing is a machine stitching technique that replicates hand embroidery and monogramming, useful for darning, quilting, embellishing and thread art. It is surprisingly easy to do by following just a few techniques.

Needles, Pins and Pincushions
Needles and pins were once so valuable that women may have had just one fine needle with which to do all their hand sewing. Pincushions, keeping pins and needles secure, were often made of pewter or silver in decorative shapes to display on fireplace mantels - thought to bring good luck to the home.

Fabric to Knit or Crochet
Fabric can be thought of as much more than flat yardage to cut and sew into clothing, accessories and items for the home. Fabric can be treated like yarn loomed, braided, knit or crocheted too.

Traditional Inside Seam Finishing
To sew a truly professional-looking garment it is important to consider how the inside of the garment will look when completed as well as the finished outside.

April is National Serger Month
A serger - versatile companion to a sewing machine, is all about its loopers, tension discs, knife blades, feed dogs, many thread cones and specialty presser feet. The resulting neatly trimmed and overcast seam produced by a serger is a sewing time saver.

Basics for Sewing a Prom Dress
With a few common-sense considerations, sewing a dress for Prom will make for enduring high school memories. While the sewing itself is much the same as for all sewing projects, the lustrous unique fabrics often chosen for the dress can present challenges.

Tote Bags
Floral print fabrics have always announced the arrival of spring. A spring must-have, the adaptable tote bag is coming into its own as a style-conscious accessory and can be made fresh and new for this year using textiles printed in all the glorious colors in vogue for this season.
