I love my city, Dayton OH .... these tragedies need to stop!
This fun book by Hilarie Dayton is a must to have in your sewing book collection! This has great tips and some fun projects for all!
We will be meeting at Needle, Ink and Thread at 5:15 (please do not arrive earlier as I have a private lesson that ends at 5 PM), to write cards, letters, draw pictures and such to send to her. Let's show her love, let's let her know that we are all thinking about her and want to give her a "hug" if you will with our mail.
What a year 2016! You have made me laugh, cry, yell, scream, sob, scared and hopeful. Closing Sew Dayton and opening Needle, Ink and Thread.
Sewing a garment can be scary! But, it doesn't have to be. I have assembled a list of 10 basic beginner patterns to get you into the garment world of stitching! Each pattern will teach you new techniques and revisit some that are a little bit tricker at first, like bias binding. But it will keep you practicing, which in turn will make the process much easier each time you complete the task!
A helpful trick, is to use comic board backing to wrap your fabrics into store them. They run about $7 for 100 of them. And this will help you keep track of your pretty fabrics and can be a nice bit of inspiration when you're sewing!
Colette patterns are patterns for the vintage seamstress! This pattern is fun and has fantastic instructions, it is a great pattern to help increase your technical skills.
I know this is a few months past.. but it took me a while to process all the fantastic things/feelings that are Houston Quilt Market. The first trip is in the books, walking through those convention doors, the mass amount of space that was in front of me, the twisting aisles of fabric, quilts, notions, clothing, tools, designers, and industry professionals… Overwhelming. But exciting and inspiring at the same time.
This is a great pasta dish all year round, look for tomatoes at your local farmer's market. I can't stress this enough, the flavor you will get from fresh locally grown fruits and veggies will blow your mind! Add your favorite RAW veggies and eat up! I promise this will be a hit that everyone will continue to ask you to bring over to their potluck dinner!
