I don't know about y'all but I am so glad Spring is here and the weather is finally turning warmer and brighter. Pollen aside, the sunny days make me happy. They also make me want to sew pretty things! Good thing I am in a fabric store with the prettiest fabrics and notions for clothes, quilts and decorating that anyone could ever dream of! If you haven't been in Sew And Sews Place yet what could you possibly be waiting for? Here is your engraved invitation!
OH-Great News! We are participating in our first ShopHop this summer, July 15-17, 2021. Mark your calendars. Passports are available for Pre-Sale now at all participating shops for $5 each. Get yours now!
New Sewing Classes for May are on the Class Page! Sign up now on-line or in the Shop. So many classes are kitted to make things easier for you. Also we have gone around the shop and marked down quite a few fabrics to entice your creativity. As I am sure you have noticed not all of our fabrics are on-line. Many, many more are in the the Shop itself. Stop in sometime and enjoy or say Hi.😊❤️🧵🪡
Well, once again we have openings for Sewing Teachers/Instructors. I know you are out there. Quit hiding under the bushes and bolts of fabrics in your stash. Summer is fast approaching and there are kids who will love adding a sewing class to their summer routine. Please step-up and help out in the shop so we can offer Youth Sewing lessons this year. Come on in and introduce yourself, let's chat. m
NEWSFLASH! We are changing our website and in-shop software. Please be patient with us if item quantities are incorrect or missing over the next month or so while we work through these changes. Growth is not always easy and it was time to implement this adjustment to our business so we could serve you better and more and efficiently overall.
Did you know I make YouTube Videos of some of the sewing projects and box openings we do here in the Shop? Why yes, yes, I do! And our YouTube Channel is named of all things Sew And Sews Place. Let us know what you think and please share the links with ALL of your friends and family. We really do want to hear your feedback so we can improve and do more of the things you want to see. m
Let's Make a Boo-boo Bag
How about a cute bow? This one is quick and easy, useful too.
Why do I need a mannequin? Because we are all different, that's why. Let me 'plain a few things about mannequins. Let me also show you what I really looked like under my cute dress 15 years ago. Watch for more! m
How About Trying a Quick Serger Project For a Change.
I used 3/4 yd of our 45" Satin Fabric, and 1/4 yd of our pretty coordinated 100% cotton fabric for the trim band. Everything was pre-washed and cut before I started. I chose a pillowcase from home as my pattern.
Sign up to keep up!
Long ago, in a land far, far away... just kidding. My grandmother introduced me to hand sewing when I was six, and I was hooked. By the age of twelve I was using my moms sewing machine and for my Sweet Sixteen I received my very own Kenmore. Her name is Faithful, and she has travelled the world with my family and I over the years.
I believe sewing is a skill that once learned can never be taken away. Like riding a bike. Also, should be enjoyed with the finest fabrics and tools. I mean why not? We only dance once, and you want to do it in the prettiest shoes! m
