Turn and Press

>> Thursday, February 21, 2008

I get a lot of (often anonymous) thanks for a couple of tutorials I've posted on this blog, so I think it's safe to assume that there are a few new sewers hanging around here. Check out Turn and Press - a new blog chronicling one woman's adventures learning how to sew. As a self-taught sewer myself I sooooo sympathize with her as she tries to translate the "seamstress speak" in which so many patterns are written - especially the ones from the big pattern houses - grrrr.

But here's the cool thing. She goes beyond just sharing her woes. She takes readers step by step through her projects - pointing out what she did wrong along the way and then how she fixed it. Her most recent post was about her attempts to make a zippered pouch. She tried three different methods, linked to them all, and showed what did and didn't work for her. Very cool! And a great resource for those who want to learn along with her.

By the way - there's a list of links now, in the left sidebar, to my free tutorials. It's right below the flickr badge.
