Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

DO WHAT YOU LOVE WITH ALL YOUR HEART. That's what this wallhanging in my sewing room says!! I couldn't agree more. I have been sewing forever (we'll keep that undisclosed!), and have been quilting for 20 years. Although I've tried my hand at many crafts, cross stitch, tole painting, floral arranging and so on, sewing has always been my passion. This is where the bulk of my "investment" to myself lies. I truly believe that purchasing good tools: scissors, rotary cutters & mats, lighting, sewing machine and tables, a good chair and all the little notions one buys, is what makes for the best sewing experience. Early on I got the least expensive items, but as time went on, and finances allowed, I upgraded!! Lots of people I knew thought I was crazy to spend $4500.00 for a Bernina! But, I sew almost everyday, and that's what makes it an investment in myself. This wallhanging was a labor of love with all it's little applique pieces, but it's got all the stuff I like pictured in it. I hope you like it too.

I really, really like this wall hanging. I am just getting my new sewing room set up, All the furniture and machines are in place but I want to decorate the walls. Like you I have done a variety of crafts. I am currently tole painting a big sign for my wall that simply says IMAGINE. Like you I spend time with some craft, sewing, knitting, decorating in hand every day. I second your opinion to buy the best you can afford. All the notions/gadgets help guarantee a perfect outcome of the project. My husband is a great encourager - if you enjoy it - buy it....then use it of course.

I love the wall hanging! Also the door topper is a great idea. Very creative.
