As sewists we can all agree that we absolutely positively have a love of fabric!  Fabric is what binds us {and our garments}, and when we find a fabric that we love it’s hard to stop us from sewing up everything we can get our hands on, or stashing it away and treating it like a prized possession! 

Curiosities

When I saw Art Gallery's newest line, Curiosities by Jeni Baker, I got a little giddy and may have sat staring at my computer screen for a few too many moments, dreaming up what these fabulous fabrics could...

You walk into your local sewing shop and start browsing.  You are immediately overwhelmed by the amount of little tools they have.  You see helpers for this kind of project and tools for that, and you think to yourself, "do I really need that?"  Well, I am here to answer that question once and for all!

Bias tape makers have been around for a while now, but the real question is do we really need them?  Do they make enough of a difference to spend extra money on them, especially when we could just put those few dollars towards that gorgeous fabric we've been swooning over?  Or maybe you'd rather just buy your bias tape.  Maybe the whole process of making your own is just too tedious and you end...
