Was just going through some of my links today and wondering what other people's favorite site(s) are for sewing related stuff besides PR, of course

Is it a shopping site? Maybe a blog? Maybe a tutorial site?

Share please

Subject: Whats your favorite sewing site besides PR?? Date: 11/17/13 3:27 AM

I am an ASG member so of course I am on their National site and Chapter sites a lot.

I used to be really involved in Yahoo Groups. I joined those that were specific to the machines I owned and learned tons about them. They are nice to join when you are researching a particular brand and want to learn from owners about potential problems. Or want to buy or sell sewing items.

I record most of the sewing PBS shows and when I come across techniques I would use, then I go to their websites and download the program PDF.
I am on Nancy Z's site the most for the videos of how to use products and techniques.

With You Tube- I can search for how to do a technique on a certain brand of machine- or just various ways to do a technique or what features are on a machine.

I don't follow bloggers but I do jump off the PR links that interest me and wander them between sites to gather information but not often.

For the most part PR is my bread & butter site. I get the daily digest and read it first thing every morning. PR is so diverse that all my interests are satisfied and for the most part, I can get a question quickly answered. I use sewing sites foremost to educate myself or share my experiences. Social connections are secondary.

This is a great topic and will be interesting to see what other sites people visit. I am sure it will be quite different for people whose interest in sewing is more toward a social exchange or a business venture.

I agree with sideseams and SandiMacD. I like Fashion Sewing Blog TV on YouTube to look up sewing techniques. I also get the daily digest and learn of some bloggers from their reviews here.

My measurements = 47-35-43. Height = 5ft11in.
RTW size =18 on top, 14/16 on bottom.
Sewing size = 20 and I alter from there.

Under "My Stuff", click Notifications, and there you will find lots of checkboxes, including one for a daily digest. You have to be logged in. I really enjoy my digest!

Under "My Stuff" on the left side menu at the top, click notifications. There is a list of notifications you can receive. The Daily Digest is worth the price of admission, I think. Also go to Edit Profile, and make sure that you have site notifications turned on.

A lot of these features are hard to find. It's worth just spending a little time digging around in all the links under My stuff to see what's there, although if the platform is going to change dramatically, we could all be starting from scratch... I don't really understand what is going to change, and what isn't and there haven't been any previews (hint hint).

Yep this is my go to site, every morning with my tea! I love to go off on tangents, following links to patterns, blogs, fabric sites, etc. I have tried other sewing sites, but I am not nearly as fond of them, so I usually bookmark them, but don't return on a regular basis, like my daily dose of PR.

I too love PR! Am not on other sites half as much, and visit PR at least twice a day, at least! Love IT!
