An Overview of Sewing with Stitcher

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!

EDUCATION

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. 

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.
