Well here goes, my first post. This is a historic, monumental event for me (well almost).
When I was a very young child I used to watch my grandmother sew, she also crocheted but the sewing is what kept my attention. When I got older she taught me how to sew. She used to make so many of my clothes. I now have a quilt that she made that contains some of the very fabrics that she had used to make garments for me as a child (what a treasure)! So, when I reached Jr. high school I took sewing and kept taking it all through high school. I got pretty good at it and even made some extra money during my years in college sewing for friends. In my early adulthood I made most of my clothes, I enjoyed it so much. Then, somehow life happened and I fell off the sewing wagon and only sewed here and there and it became very far & few between when I had time to sew. Finally I just stopped....for a pretty long time. Though I'd stopped sewing I still loved going to the fabric store and I continued buying patterns & fabric to hopefully get back into it. Well that day has finally come!
I've been so inspired by some really admirable & stylish divas whom I've had the good fortune of viewing through http://www.patternreview.com/ This is an awesome website that has lead me to a sewing revival. I'm so grateful for the awakening! I'm so glad I discovered this website, I can't even remember how I discovered it, but I'm glad I did. I have to mention some very special women that I've had the pleasure of peeking in on and finally getting back into this wonderful world of sewing. There are far more than I could ever mention but the following ladies stand out as a few I've viewed on a regular basis, they have a wonderful sense of style and great tips & technique.
