EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Sewing

Sewing is a true art form and a skill that everyone can use. Who hasn't needed to sew a button on a shirt or jacket? Or mend a hem? Don't head to the tailor or seamstress, take on these small projects yourself when you learn the basics. 

 

Feeling more ambitious? Create an entire project from scratch to give as a gift, or keep it for yourself. We also have techniques on how to sew items to use to decorate your home or use for your everyday tasks.

 

Whether you're fixing or feeling fancy, read on to learn the basics, find out what materials you need, and see some of our favorite projects and get inspiration for some of your own.
