Start off the New Year with a sewing project!
Our New Year's resolution at the Home Sewing Association is to enjoy sewing more by sewing more often!
Whether you haven't sewn for a while, are new to sewing altogether, or sew frequently, let yourself be tempted by one of our projects. You'll always find inspiration, ideas, and great projects in the Enthusiast section of sewing.org!
Sewing Tip of the Month One of the big fashion trends for the winter and into the spring is fur. And some of the faux furs are very elegant!
For best results when sewing, experiment with the type of needle. A leather needle can work; and since many faux furs are produced with a knit backing, a ball point needle can make that job easier. Frequently it helps to increase your stitch length. And consider cutting or shaving away the fur in the seam allowances - a vacuum cleaner will help keep your sewing space from getting too fuzzy!
BEHIND THE SEAMS: Have you wondered how your sewing space compares with others who sew? Do you sew in a corner of the bedroom? Use the dining room table? Or do you have a beautifully appointed room dedicated to sewing? We want to see how you sew!
Sewing.org will feature one reader's sewing space each month during 2005. To be considered for inclusion, complete our online form. If your sewing space is selected as the monthly feature, we'll send you a small gift for participating. And, if necessary - or requested - we'll also hide your true identity!
