I’m a longtime fan of Threads, and a sewer since I could hold a needle–remember those pre-punched cardboard starter kits with the big fat needles and yarn? The yarn connected the dots to form a picture. Did anyone else’s mother start them out that way?
For the last 12 years I’ve done alterations and repairs full time in a shop in NYC. I love the challenge of tailored details (in my own clothing), but am dabbling in destructured jackets at the moment. Have tried my hand at most of the needlecrafts, but just keep coming back to clothes!
I teach alterations, so hope I will be able share some tips. Am looking forward to learning from other experienced sewers!
