Back to sewing and basics

My name is Lizz and I have been sewing for about ten years now. Actually I learned the basics when I was a teenager, but in 2000 I decided to sew some of my clothes and bought a Dritz dress form. That is where my sewing addiction started.

I am a fan of Project Runway and I am so happy to see that so many people are interested on learning to sew, so that is why I named my blog Back to Sewing because we are "back to sewing" in America. People are purchasing more sewing machines than ever, Joann Fabrics reported an increase on sales this year and a lot of schools had to introduce sewing school programs.

So, that is what my blog is about, about sewing, fashion, pattern review and even jewelry making!

This is a very nice post. I found it by accident, while looking for a particular pattern company. Your site had some of what I was looking for.
It is good to know that people are getting back into sewing. Once you develope the skill, it is very economical, impressive, and lucrative.
Thanks, Donna
