Beyond Home Sewing

Unique sewing events, projects, and more.

Bandana Essentials star
The contemporary form of today’s commercialized bandana is thought to have originated in India in the 1800’s, woven of silk or cotton with designs of white on colored backgrounds of red or blue. Today this cheery square of fabric is produced in every color of the rainbow with many design elements.

Bridal Sewing star[offsite link]
The Home Sewing Association has a free project selection for bridal sewing including Tulle Wedding and Bridal Shower Decorations, Sheer Ribbon Roses, Wedding Gown Tips, Fast Veils, and more.

Brief Sewing History star
Sewing clothing and items for our daily use, from times past to present, adds to our very human historical and contemporary narrative of who we once were and are even now.

Dorm Room Sewing Ideas star
Few living spaces can be as tightly cramped as a shared dorm room. The college of course would have a dorm room checklist as a guideline of essential items for the student to bring. Yet, it can become difficult deciding what to bring from this list, since it all seems so very essential.

Fabric and Architecture - Unique Partners star
In comparison to ancient times, where the use of natural materials was the only practical choice to use for fabric, today’s textiles are near engineering marvels. Just consider the process of incorporating fabrics into contemporary structures that change our sheltered environments in unique ways.

Fabric Stenciling star
Stenciled designs on fabric can be created by daubing on fabric paint, inks or dyes, even the power of the sun, applied to a stencil template. When the template is removed, the resulting precise image will be visible on the underlying surface. A wonderful fabric embellishment technique.

Organizing Your Sewing Space star[offsite link]
In an ideal world, each of us would have a separate sewing room where we could leave unfinished projects behind closed doors. Host Sandra Betzina shows how to organize your sewing area, no matter what the size, so you can spend more time sewing and less time cleaning up!

Outside the Box Sewing star
Consider the phrase 'thinking outside the box' as a challenge to do the same with sewing. The catchy expression is often associated with innovation, seeking original solutions, or going beyond the status quo.

Presser Feet - Narrow Rolled Hem and Ruffler Foot star
Learn about the Narrow Rolled Hem and Ruffler sewing machine presser feet and how they can make your sewing tasks easier and more enjoyable.

Sewing and Serging Machines star
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 Collectibles star
Antique collectible sewing items are many and varied. Aside from early sewing machines that parallel the progression of the Industrial Revolution, there are unique buttons, sewing baskets, thimbles, ornate scissors, pin cushions and needle boxes that give us a nostalgic look into the past.

Sewing Couture star
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.

Sewing Idioms star
What are idioms and how are they connected to the process of sewing? An idiom is a figure of speech, in any language, whose symbolic or intended meaning is different from the actual meaning of the individual words themselves. A stitch in time, saves nine is a familiar idiomatic phrase.

Sewing with Felted Wool star
As the warmest days of summer are replaced with the cooler days of autumn, thoughts turn to back to school days, upcoming harvest fairs and fall festivities. A great time to bring out the woolen garments of prior cold seasons that may no longer fit well but may still have a useful recycled life.

Starting Your Own Sewing Business star[offsite link]
Mary Wilkins of Sew-What´s-New.com describes starting your own sewing business with a few hints to start you off in the right direction including deciding on your area of expertise, location of your business, and networking.

Sun Printing on Fabric star
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.

The Business of Sewing star
Sewing, as a home-based or cottage industry, is part of the growing legion of service businesses. If you have contemplated starting your own business and have more than competent sewing skills, you may be able to transform a hobby into a profitable business.

The Textile Museum star[offsite link]
The Textile Museum is dedicated to preserving creative achievements in the textile arts. Located in Washington D.C.

Zippy Keychain Wallet Tutorial Finishing star
Finishing instructions for this handy zippered keychain wallet tutorial.
