Hi! My name is Stacy Burnett. I am a homeschooling mother of 5. My kids are 18, 16, 15, 8 and 5. 3 boys and 2 girls. I just started my sewing journey at the end of March 2012 when I FINALLLLLLY received a sewing machine for my Bday. I took off at a run and haven't stopped. I am having a blast!! I just wish all the kids would let me sew for them. LOL So far just my youngest 2 have appreciated it. ;)

Hi Sewers! My name is Shelley, and I live in SoCal. I've sewed nearly forever (my Mom kept doll outfits I designed and sewed by hand before I was old enough to go to school). Through high school and college and for a decade after, I sewed a substantial portion of my casual and work clothes. Sewing over the past few years has been very unfocused--mostly repairs, alterations, and necessities (curtains, blinds, dog beds, etc). Pretty boring stuff--I let life take over. I want to sew for the joy of sewing again - for the joy of creation with all its pin pricks and frustrations.
I glad to join this community. I'm hoping the external deadline of the challenges will help focus the small amount of time I have to sew in a more productive way. Even if I don't sew every challenge, I will sew more than I've sewn for years! Seems a worthwhile endeavor. OK, now I'm off to finish up my dress for our anniversary dinner tonight (in the enormous 1 hour 50 minutes I have to sew). Time...time....time!
Welcome to sew weekly Shelley.. Hope you have as much fun, as I have.. Happy sewing.
Welcome Kim.. Hope you have lots of fun on SW.. Happy sewing.
My name is Ndidi and I'm new to all of this! The fashions, the sewing. I literally took up sewing a month ago when I went to an intensive 'learn how to sew' sewing class and since then I've made two really cook outfits for my 17month old daughter and I'm on a roll :) I noticed this is an American website, I'm from the UK myself and I wish we had a community hub such as this that you guys seem to have accross the atlantic.
As well as wanting to participate in these activities in order to up my skills, I do have another agenda: I want to open a small business selling children't clothes and wanted to know if anyone can recommend efficient and trustworthy sewing contractors...?
Thank you all for reading - I look forward to your responses.
Welcome to sew weekly.. Hope you have a great time sewing.. I have enjoyed and learned
so many new things here, and have made lots of friends.. Happy sewing.
Hi Im Chrissy I am 26 and a young mom to a handsome little 5 yr old name James, we currently live in Ohio. I literally just signed up for sew weekly minutes ago after reading a review somewhere on a blog. I am always a member of burdastyle.com I am extremely new to sewing. I've owned a sewing machine for about a year but have not really played around with it to much. I've only sewed to items before and thats a pair of bloomer shorts and a overnight cotton bag. I want to learn more about sewing but can not find the right resources or supportive community to help me with my new found love for sewing as a hobby I would like to make garments some day but I am no where near that goal lol. I am looking forward to talking and getting to know all of you and hopefully I'll learn alot.
Hi! My name is Nicole and I live in Mountain View, CA (the very heart of Silicon Valley) where I am a part-time faculty member at a local community college (I teach biology and biotechnology), and a part-time stay-at-home mom to two boys, ages (almost) 7 and (almost) 2. It kills me to see beautiful clothing at places like Boden, which are so simple to make (and so expensive to buy!) yet I haven't made the leap to only wearing me-made clothing, mostly because I just don't have time. I've been making my own patterns lately and it's been fun to work out the construction of more complicated pieces. I document my projects at my website, www.nicoleathome.com.
Hi Nicole, welcome to sew weekly..Look forward to seeing your sewing items.. Hope you enjoy SW , as much as I have.. Happy sewing.
I'm Meraj, a 20-year-old studying and working in Toronto, Ontario (in Canada). I started to sew clothes as a preteen, but it's only in the last year and especially the last few months that my sewing has really picked up -- probably because I finally discovered sewing blogs this spring! That's partly why I joined the Sew Weekly; it seems like a good way to get inspiration as well as meet other people who sew.
