    It’s hard for me to think of someone other than Carol Duval for bringing interesting inspirational crafting ideas and the right people to give good instruction and understanding for their little demonstrations. Tru

    I like PS I made this. I love taking old things and making them new. When you do that you are being green, but most important it’s cheaper to use what you already have!!!

    I usually come across sewing blogs when googling some project I have in mind so it’s hard to name a favorite. Sew Mama Sew comes to mind as one that I enjoy.

    I like the Selfish Seamstress…. she says what a lot of people think , but do not have the nerve to say :) I also follow Amanda’s Adventure in Sewing…. She does such a great job and I like to see what she is working on from week to week.
