I’ve loved fabric since I was little, and I sewed 4-H projects. However, I frequently got frustrated and set projects aside, promising to come back. Moving frequently also delayed my progress. Several years ago things came together for me — I was able to tackle a project, deal with the challenges, and actually finish and wear the items. Backgrounds in technical writing, professional training and corporate consulting led me to start SoundStitches. I still think installing zippers is tedious, by the way, but who wants 12″ of Velcro running down the back of a dress?! I’m always learning, and when I teach new sewers, I hope they learn to apply basic skills to their own sewing “style.”
Do you have a sewing journey?… Are you returning to sewing after a hiatus? Do you sew to be fashionable, or to save money? Do you have children to sew for?
