Selfish Sewing Week is Here! | Fall 2015 Selfish Sewing Week

It’s that time of year again: Selfish Sewing Week is here! We cohost this twice-yearly event with Rachael from  Imagine Gnats  and it never fails to be inspiring and productive.  Those who know their way around a sewing machine often choose (or get wrangled) to sew primarily for others.

Top Five Boxy Top Sewing Patterns for 2015 | Top Five Boxy Top Sewing Patterns for 2015

We’re more than halfway through 2015, folks. It feels a bit surreal that the past year has flown by so fast. The other day I wrote 2008 on a check.

How to Indigo Dye Fabric  | How to Indigo Dye Fabric Using Shibori Techniques

Last week I drove nearly 1,000 miles to my family’s cabin in northern Montana. I fought some serious drowsiness along the vast open stretches of I-25 through the entire state of Wyoming.
