Re: 10 Better Sewing Habits

My only issue with this is pushing the use of pins. My experience has always been to use less pins. The reason is that the pins for one take more time and it does off set the amount of fabric when cutting.
Ironing is indeed a life saver to do while constructing a garment. It will make your finished piece more professional and I use a cloth over my fabric when I iron.

I simply want to learn and this is my next xtep after finding a worn out pgm dress form for 25 bucks! I am padding it and adding a new linen top on it so it shall be good as new and with money very tight it was a steal. Now I am on to finding textbooks to get me started so I can make semi formal dresses I can wear to my sons school band concerts!

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

This school year I am hoping to start a home ec club at the my sons middle school, since the budget cut it out completely. The main focus will be sewing and design. If I could design my own I would hope it can be shared to pass on and inspire the students to want to do more. I know my home ec teachers were the best and because of them I am still sewing today.
