Have you visted the forum lately?

on May 14 | in Etc... | by | with 20 Comments

Do you have a question about a sewing technique, pattern or fabric? Do you want to show off your latest creation? Do have a swap or contest to announce? The forum is the place to be! It’s a supportive sewing community where you can ask a question like this one about backstitching and get tons of great responses! Here are just a few fun threads and projects from the forum:
Elastic thread tips
Ottobre magazine questions (plus some good Ottobre tips)
Thoughts about Portabellopixie Sewing Patterns (plus more in the archives with pics)
Secrets to “preserving” clothing patterns for multiple uses
How do you know if you can sell something you’ve made with someone’s pattern?
What color thread do you use most often?


Skirt by Marie Grace, Marie Grace Designs (seen in Look What I Made! in the forum)

Check out this Oliver + S outfit, add your favorite sewing blogs and look at Marie’s great skirt (above) from a Japanese pattern book (with her source info & feedback in the discussion) and Mara’s new tote (below).

    I’m the asker of the first highlighted question and I just want to say that it is SO nice to have a place that I can go to with just about any question and get answers so quickly and easily. It really helps a wannabe sewer such as myself have the confidence to try new things.

    thank you all!!!

    Shame on me, it’s too long ago since I looked up something at the forum. But the topics you’ve picked teasing us are so interesting, I just hopped over and had a look. (But in Germany it’s deepest night right now, so I am going to read the threads tomorrow and go to sleep right now!)
