Do you want to contribute?!

on July 4 | in Contributors | by | with 9 Comments

We’re looking for contributors! We’ll introduce you to over a quarter of a million subscribers and we’ll give you some new fabric too… We’re looking for tutorials related to the following topics:

  • “Back to Basics”-type tutorials: Very clear, easy instructions with fantastic step-by-step photos for basic items like totes, easy skirts, kid pants/shorts, potholders, etc. + techniques like making bias tape, sewing a binding on a quilt, using elastic thread, etc.– It should be something you’ve made tons of times.
  • Christmas in July (or August!): Check out the holiday-related tutorials already on the blog and propose something new!
  • Intermediate Apparel Techniques: Again, take a look at what we have here and here and propose something new.

We love clear photos in natural light and clear, step-by-step instructions. Email us ( with your ideas, summer availability and a few examples of your sewing (links are better than photo attachments).

Thank you! We’re always amazed by your creativity, skill and generosity.

  1. I have a tutorial on how to fold your fabric when making bias binding. I get asked this during every quilting class I teach. I finally made this tutorial and posted it on my blog. I would be happy to share it if you are interested. Thank you!

    I could contribute a tutorial on a beach bag made from hardware mesh. I have a pattern I designed called “”Beachy Mesh” but need to put it into a turtoial format. I have intended to put this on my blog…this would be the push needed. I am a fairly new blogger so this would be a great opportunity.

    Thanks…Kathy Gordon,

    Recycling is great way to save our planet.

    You can give an eye to my other creations. 🙂

    Thank you

    I would LOVE to contribute a tutorial. I am most interested in doing more advanced garment tutorials. I make all my husband’s shirts, and have a nifty way to make a collar reduces bulk in the points. Also – how to make a “non-pointy” bust dart would be helpful to many people. I also love couture sewing, and some techniques could be considered “intermediate” – such as catchstitching seam allowances or applying Hong Kong binding. This would be so fun – thanks for considering my ideas! Squeal!! 🙂

  5. I would love to be a contributor. I have a tutorial for a super easy quick crayon rollup on my blog.

    I also have a tutorial for this great Christmas tree skirt made from 5″ charm squares and how to sew the binding around the circle, but it is currently down for better pictures and will be back up soon. You can view the tree skirt in my flickr photostream.
    Thank you for the opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Back to School basics – at the request of my son’s principal, I designed custom portfolios to hold a legal pad and papers. The school was being evaluated and wanted to gift all the evaluators 🙂

    I made a ton of them, and they turned out so awesome! Totally forgot to blog them 🙂 It would be great for high school or college kids to carry around.

    I have no idea why I didn’t get any pictures of them filled?! It was a crazy time making 20 of these with matching lanyards – all different. But here are a couple links:

    I have some tips for keeping your interfacing in place and making your turned edge look nice.

    I have three(!) custom quilts I’m working on through August – so I would love to join in, but probably need to be in August at the earliest for a tutorial.

    I don’t know if this is something that you’d be interested in, but I have posted a Scrappy Card tutorial on my blog. It can be used for holidays or just for a fun card using up scraps of fabric.
