There’s a debate in the online sewing groups about whether one who sews is a sewer (the traditional term) or a sewist (a newer term). No matter what term you prefer, here are a few picks from our collection to give you inspiration for your next project.
This book is drop-dead gorgeous. I think most sewists and quilters will tell you that sometimes, it’s fun just to look at fabric. Even if you don’t have a specific project in mind.
I appreciate a book that has projects that a beginner can do without feeling overwhelmed. Sotak has clear explanations with helpful photos. Got odds and ends in your fabric stash? There are some great projects in here that will help you use them up.
These designs are adorable and will spruce up any item you add them to. So go ahead and get sprucing!
I haven’t ventured into quilting…yet…but this book makes it feel less intimidating.
I love this British monthly magazine that is all about embroidery. A great source of inspiration, projects, and how-to.
