A Bit About Sewing with Stitcher – The Website Overview
BLOGGING ABOUT MY WEEK
Where better to share my week of sewing and quilting ups and downs than on a blog! I’ll document some of the process by photo, throw in some thoughts and ideas, and once in awhile share some family fun, like getting a new puppy!
I love to sew and quilt! This is my place to share with you what I know about anything sewing/quilting related. I like to simplify what can be intimidating to someone wanting to learn to sew. Sewing is really just one stitch at a time. I will write about subjects equally interesting to someone just learning to the experienced. The Educational selection from the menu will open the door to subjects from thread to fabric selection; easy quilt patterns to perfect points and smooth curves; and, how tools and machines we use today have improved the products that can be made by hand or machine.
STITCHERMADE – MY LITTLE RETAIL SHOP
The third part of this website is StitcherMade, my little retail outlet of things I have made. I’m a “one of a kind” artist, so you will seldom see identical items listed. Listings happen as I complete things. StitcherMade currently is under construction as I put together a glitch-free process to protect your personal information when you make purchases.
I am also designing quilt patterns. Creating seems to be the easy part; writing clear and precise directions is much more involved. I hope to introduce them in the store soon.
LOOK FOR MY NEW LINE “JUDY” IN STITCHERMADE
A few years back, I was chosen by a delightful lady to design and sew for her clothing that would “make a statement when entering a room and again when leaving”. My creative side was excited for the challenge to please this eccentric elderly lady who knew what she wanted and provided some beginning fabrics I was to use. The common fabric she wanted in all that I made her was vintage chenille. Some of the other fabrics provided were denim, curtains and drapes, tapestry, vintage handkerchiefs, lace and buttons. Because I enjoyed the process of combining these unusual fabrics, I have continued designing and making a variety of jackets, vests, and bags using them. You will find them in StitcherMade under “Judy”, my designs in her honor.
