My Sewing Studio

Now that I’ve taught a few classes, I find that the questions I  get from students most are a) what kind of machine do you use? and b) what does your sewing studio look like?  Today, in honor of National Sewing Month, I’ll answer both those questions.  I have just finished reorganizing my studio, because it was getting way too crowded.

Second Saturday Stitchers

Today was the debut of the Second Saturday Stitchers at the library where I work.  We’ll meet monthly on Saturday mornings and bring our stitch work along to work on.  It was a wonderful experience for me, the organizer of the program.

True Blue Table Runner

Today I’m sharing a project I made last summer.  It’s made with precut jelly roll strips and  I was very happy with how the project turned out.

September is National Sewing Month!

I am happy it’s September.  Happy for lots of good reasons, like summer is behind us and the kids are back in school.  Life has returned to normal. For me, as a librarian, that means that soon we’ll be helping kids with homework assignments instead of explaining that there are no Diary of  a Wimpy Kid books on the shelf because they are all checked out and other kids are reading them.

Even though the advent of September doesn’t really mean the hot weather is over here in Texas, it at least means we have hope that the heat will break soon and we can smell fall in the air.  September also means it is National Sewing Month.
