Moving into the New Year

I know this Inspiration Page leaves a little to be desired so am making plans for next year!  I had big aspirations, but due to the closing down of the maker side of the business, it tied me up more than I had anticipated for the second half of 2018.  As a result, I made over 20 T-shirts just between September and November!  And although I love to make them, my real passion is experimenting with different patterns, making some of my own and collaborating with other sewers.

Moving into the New Year, I would like this page to have more active with engaging and compelling content with interaction between both you and I.  I need your help though.  What would you like see here on the Inspiration Page?  What types of projects are you interested in?

  • Picture Tutorials
  • Video Tutorials
  • Reviews
  • Sew Alongs

Do you mind link to other internet sites – like blogs that offer Free or Low-Cost patterns?  These would be all over the board – from quilts to handbags, to coasters and mugrugs to anything cool and fun I can find!
