Every now and then I find a really good blog and it becomes my favorite and I read it contantly for inspiration;right now it’s definatly Crochetie.I only found hers recently,and I love the clothes she makes esp the dresses!She’s really nice as well.

    I don’t have or follow any blogs (although I do read /bookmark some sewing blog posts when I come across something interesting/useful linked here or elsewhere on the web), don’t know what crafting/sewing “personalities” really are and am not intersted enough in fashion trends to read fashion blogs – there are certain designers and eras I like and take inspiration from but I can’t be bothered to stay up to date with every trend. Aren’t I boring ;-)

    Nope, no personalities that I watch… I love the Martha Stewart catalogs though, they are filled with such great color! I make collages out of them!

    I am sad to say I keep my inspirational group small due to limited time, for inspiration I turn to Martha Stewart for her varity of crafts and recipes. I also like Sew 4 Home by Janome bright and colorful inspiration.

    I’m crazy about so many blogs:

    -Ruffles and stuff -Amanda’s Adventures in Sewing -Design Sponge -How About Orange

    The first two are fantastic sewing blogs. Amanda’s Adventures in Sewing shows you Amanda’s progress with her projects and her fantastic sewing skills. The DIY blogs are great for showing you creative ways to improve the look of your home. The first thing I do in the morning is check for any updates on these blogs.

    No, I don’t. I’m just so glad to have found Burdastyle.com and I am making my way through all the opportunities it offers. Sometimes I look up a seamstress’s blog, e.g., on recycling vintage clothes, lace, etc.

    Sometimes i like to check out Instructables.. this website have many DYI projects.

    Not only is it a fun site to showcase peoples work, often it is eco friendly. It takes a lot of house hold objects to complete projects.

    I like Adrienne Martini of the blog Martinimade, and the author of Sweater Quest. Her niche is knitting, but she has a droll sense of humor and and quite a talent for research and presentation.

    I love reading the Selfish Seamstress. Her snarkiness just makes my day. I’m still looking for the perfect fabric to make her Coffee Date Dress. (Which is on this website!)
