New to Sewing ? Want to learn how to sew ? Believe it or not, I envy you ! You have a huge new world of adventure before you :) So many choices, fun new styles, great online resources, wonderful books and magazines… I would love to take you to the fabric store and watch your eyes light up !

I have taught beginning sewing to small groups. It is a pleasure to guide someone through their initial sewing project as they use their shiny, new seam ripper and fun colored thimble. How awesome to be part of the first finished project and see that satisfied smile :)

When you get into town, look me up and we’ll sit down at the sewing table together~ But for now, I have found a batch of inspiring beginner sewing projects and blogs for you. These are not boring, Jr. High School items. They are fresh ideas and can be made from a variety of fabrics; either new from the fabric store or upcycled from the back of your closet. Free patterns and Instructions !

I picked ones I enjoyed reading; most have detailed instructions with helpful photos showing you the way  step-by-step. I would love to hear from you what ones you like in particular. Please feel free to add to this list ! Let’s share good resources and pass the love of sewing on~

Recently while recovering from a boring illness, I actually  blew a ton of time, wasted days, aimlessly wandered the internet ..spent some time researching new sewing and quilting resources. I am compiling lists to share with you soon :)

But this one site, I will happily share now ! “The Quilting Rose” has gathered a collection of goodies that would make awesome gifts for any Quilter or Sewing Fiend. There are sections for: Classes, Home Decor, Jewelry, Supplies, Clothing… Not a ton of items, I imagine it’s a growing list in progress :) What an awesome excuse motivation for developing the website !  Gift ideas for Quilters and those who Sew :) I fully approve.

This is a perfect way to answer the well-meaning question: “What do you want for your birthday/Christmas/having survived that root canal ?” Refer your hubby and friends to this site, letting them know your preferences..
You will have fun reading through the gifts for quilters. There is a photo for each gift idea plus a brief but good description. At the bottom of the description, there is a long green button marked, “Click to Shop”. clicking the button will take you directly to the seller and source of the item. No ads, sign-ups or extra steps.
