Ooh, I think I found it, the missing Introduction post… Take two… (Also, two things: 1. I know that when I originally tried to post this, we were a couple weeks into the new year. Now we’re even farther into that year, but really, this is generally how I roll: slightly behind the times. 2. Sorry if this did actually get published and now I’m just re-publishing old news. See above.)
Hello Internet Dwellers! So this is the year I finally throw myself out into cyberspace. It’s a little frightening because technologically savvy I am not and socially awkward I am. But, life is about pushing yourself to try new things. Right?
So, to get down to the nitty gritty, this blog will mostly be about sewing. I love sewing and I love clothes. I wanted a forum to organize all the projects I have going, cuz man, it gets a little messy in this here sewing room.
I also wanted to reach out to the sewing community more, because generally I like to do things on my own. But this sewing thing can be HARD. And there are people out there with things to teach! And I’m wiling to to learn!
Also this year I have challenged myself in the following way:
If I decide I need a new article of clothing in my wardrobe. I either have to be able to make it for myself or it must have been made by someone else in this country or another country with decent labor practices. Preferably someone who cares about the clothing and quality construction and realizes that it is an art form. So I will be using this as a forum to share these kinds of companies and brands I come across and of course to write about all of the sewing/crafty projects I take on as well.
Bear with me while I figure out how this whole blogging thing works, how to upload pictures and link to stuff and all that snazzy business that I never really learned how to do because let’s face it, it’s been 10 years since I was in college and sh*% done changed since then!
Later I’ll snap some pictures and start talking about the projects I’m working on now but for now, I’ll leave you with this:
