Raise your hand if you made some classic New Year’s resolutions – exercising, getting lots of rest, drinking more water. All these intentions are worthy, but let’s look beyond the standard list to some Sewing Self Improvement Goals. We’re excited to join a new series from Janome: Sew Smarter. Whether you’re a beginner or a
When you are first learning to sew, everything is flat and straight. Easy peasy. As your skills evolve, you add in curves and corners, layers of different fabric and stabilizer options, and finally – you’re ready to enter another dimension. Don’t be afraid, it’s not the Twilight Zone® - we’re simply Sewing in 3D. Ready
If you’ve been following along on our SIY-Sew It Yourself!™ adventures, you know there’s a lot going on behind the pretty pictures and easy instructions: from the fabric designers’ stories about how their collections come to be – to the careful steps we walk through here with the S4H team. Our goal has always been
It seems we’re always being told to, “Look at the big picture.” Solid advice, but sometimes… it’s the little stuff that’s more fun. As part of our S4H Tiny Trends of ’22, we took a look at some great little products available right now from our friends at Fat Quarter Shop. FQS truly has some
Being able to clearly see what you’re working on is critical in sewing… truth be told, I think we can agree it’s critical to just about everything! Studies have shown good light is essential to overall well-being. If you or someone you know suffers from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or clinical light deprivation, you understand
Our Love That Fabric series has been on a bit of a hiatus, but we’re back… and it’s better than ever because the return of the series features an amazing giveaway of samples from all three featured collections. If you’re a S4H fan, you know we are the ultimate fabric enthusiasts. There are so many
It’s the little things that can make a big difference! You might not give your sewing pins a second thought, simply reaching for them in your pincushion or pin tray where they’re clustered together without much rhyme or reason. But these little bits of steel and plastic have a big job. They’re responsible for holding
“Up against the wall.” “We’re stuck on you.” “If these walls could talk.”  The introductory lines came fast and furiously for this article about the new designer wallpaper from Hawthorne Supply Co.. But what it finally came down to was: Wow. Just. Wow. We’ve always loved wallpaper – just not putting up wallpaper. In fact,
Pleats have been with us for centuries as a functional and/or decorative way to reduce the size of a piece of fabric. They are firmly ensconced in fashion sewing, but are also perfect in numerous home décor applications, like bed skirts, window treatments, and table linens. We’ve even incorporated them as unique embellishments on a
Sergers. For some, the word alone can send them screaming into the darkest corners of their sewing rooms. “The threading… not the threading… make it stop!” Well, perhaps that’s a wee bit dramatic, but the fear of threading the loopers on a serger, “Sergiothreadaphobia” as it is known in medical circles, keeps many a sewer
If you’re a Sew4Home regular, you know we don’t traditionally present a lot of projects in the wearables category. Of course, there are all our super popular aprons and a few other easy items, but in terms of fitted garments, we tend to leave those to other experts. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t love
There are lots of embellishment ideas out there, but for our money, it just doesn’t get much more fun and versatile than pom poms and tassels.
