NOTABLE MENTIONS....

...I find all kinds of interesting and useful sewing related information when cruising the web.  It's hard to keep track of it all, so I decided to start adding it to my blog for easy to find reference.  I hope you find some it useful as well.

Sheryll of Patterns.Scissors.Cloth gives us 5 WONDERFUL sewing tips every month
5 Sewing Tips for May even though it's now June


Andrea of Sew To Fit's You Tube video gives a full demonstration on Raising the V-Neckline of the New Vogue pattern 9293

Itch to Stitch, shares a great tutorial that will help us with our summer thin strip shoulder design tops and dress How to make a bra strap holder.


I also happened upon a video on Rotating Bodice Darts from Melly Sews using miniature pattern blocks.
 

AND, as if I didn't already have enough on my mental "Sewing List for Summer", I've joined not one but two more challenges.



What's on your sewing plate for this week....

  1. Great tips Faye!! I'm saving this post as a favorite so I have easy access too! Also, I was not aware of the second challenge (summer sewing challenge). I have to hop over and join that one too! Thanks for sharing Ms. Faye!

    1. I read so many blogs and see so much valuable information Myra so I thought I'd just start listing it here so I can keep better track of it.

  5. These are great links. Thanks for putting them together Faye! I hadn't heard about Pattern Scissors Cloth before--she went straight into my feed--she's got some great tips there, and the bra strap holder is super helpful for summer. I feel like I'm mostly writing this week. I have a guest post for Dutch Label Shop that's going up next week, and I'm doing the blog tour for Designer Stitch's 1st birthday on Thursday. Perhaps I'll clean the sewing room! LOL!

  8. Hubby bought me a bunch of new dresses, but since dress makers make everything for someone 6" taller than me, there's a lot of hemming to do. And....I have my 15 month old granddaughter for the week, while my daughter in law is having their second child! So there's plenty of fun in my house, even if I don't have time to sew fun summer dresses (or hem them, as the case may be). I'll come back and check out your links next week, when I'm bored! Hope you're having a great week, Faye.

  9. Thank you for sharing these great links Ms. Faye. For me I am going to complete about 6 projects I have got started, and put aside to start another sewing project like I need another hole in my head. Am I the only one that starts one project, and gets interested in sewing something else?
