So, you’ve watched Project Runway for years now.
You marvel at the haute couture creations of the young seamstress in the series, The Time in Between by María Dueñas.
You run your hands over beautiful textiles as you wander through fabric shops imagining what you could make if you only knew how to sew.
Maybe you even opened a beautiful new sewing machine on Christmas morning.
Now what? Where do you start? What else will you need to buy? How will you get that sewing machine up and running?
Well, grab my hand and come with me to my new sewing series, Learn to Sew where together we’ll get your machine up and running, get you the tools you need, master the basic stitches, crack the pattern code, create a few simple projects to get you started and before you know it, you’ll be making your own fabric treasures.
Once you get a taste of how much fun sewing can be, I promise, you’ll never look back.
I hope you enjoy this new series and as an added bonus, if you make a comment over at eHow and pin the Essential Sewing Tools article to one of your Pinterest boards, your name will be entered to win a copy of The Refashion Handbook.
The winner will be announced next week.
