Dear Deepika ,

When I had just started sewing, the grain lines were a mystery to me. Somehow I managed the straight and the cross grain but the bias remained a mystery to me for a very long time. With that in mind, Jennifer designed a class on bias and I can honestly say that this is the most thorough explanation of bias I've ever seen. And you end up with a (or many) cute bias skirts to add to your wardrobe. Take the class today!

This week Tomasa (TJSEWS) is our member in focus. She got her first sewing machine when she was 8! Read on to learn about her sewing goals for this year.

I announce the fabric suggestions for the new vogue patterns with mixed feelings. I have my eye on that gorgeous silk satin. Leave some for me will you?

All Simplicity patterns are on sale for $3.99 from now through Thursday. Stock up now.

Before I go, may I remind you to vote in the Fitted Blouse Contests today. Voting ends on Wednesday.  
 
Until next time, 
Happy Sewing,

What are your sewing goals for this year?

 

"My sewing goal is one I have always had: To learn and improve as much as I can. I want my garments to look professionally made. I believe that if I am going to spend time and energy making a garment, it might as well be something professional-looking of which I can be proud."
