Tracings - Learning to Sew            

 

Greetings! 
 
You know when you walk out that door wearing that fabulous outfit and people just look at you in disbelief when you tell them that you made it yourself?! I love that every.single.time! 

 

And guess what they say next. "I wish I could sew." Well, it's your turn to tell them that they can! We are dedicating this issue of Tracings to learning to sew...with tons of patterns and resources to help you teach yourself or others. 

 

Years ago when my mom visited me, I showed her how to sew some bags. Before she left, she had made 20 bags, two sets of cloth napkins and many other things I cherish to this day. 

 

So what are you waiting for? Spread the sewing love today!

 

Happy Tracing!

Learning to Sew: Adults and Teens

 

Once upon a time in a not-so-imaginary past, more people knew how to sew. Sewing was a standard subject in grade school and junior high, and it wasn't uncommon to have several generations of family in the home who knew how to sew and made their own clothes. 


Fast forward to the 21st century. 


Friends who learned to sew
Computer education has replaced home arts classes and shop, and most of U.S clothes manufacturing takes place in countries like China.

But buttons still fall off clothes, hems still fall down and seams still come apart, even though many of us haven't been trained to deal with them. Do we throw our clothes away when these problems occur? We shouldn't. We should be self-reliant and depend on our own resourcefulness.
