Over the last 5 years that I have been sewing I always heard people say that they are afraid to do something, sew with knits, use a serger, sew a pair of jeans, a coat, pants, velvet, buttonholes you name it!
Usually, when I read the words variation or hack I think of some major pattern changes that make the original design close to unrecognizable.
One of the most common fears of home sewers is making buttonholes. Maybe they had some bad experiences or they are afraid of ruining a well-constructed garment. Whatever it is, it is holding their sewing back!
I am not much of a party enthusiast. I also don’t dance and small talk is not one of my strengths. As a mom though I have to push my feeling aside so a certain someone i.e. my son, can have some fun! Somehow peers are much more fun for him to be with!
Today I would like to take you with me to the fabric district. This is where I do almost all of my fabric shopping. As you can see on the map it is located in the center of the city. An area called “The Retail Triangle”.
