Threading My Way
I've just retired after 30+ years of Teaching, so for the first time in my life, I can wake up each day and decide how I will spend all the free time that I have. Amazingly, I wonder how I had time to fit in work. The majority of my spare time is spent sewing, blogging about sewing, or outside in my garden.
Kristin from Australia
pritty tings
I'm fairly new to this sewing/blogging stuff but am definitely addicted! I am a wife, a mum to a very busy little boy and step mum to four (adult) children. I love to cook, craft, shop and drink red wine. I am also secretly addicted to home/lifestyle magazines, I just love those glossy pages! I work part time (wah) and spend far too much time attached to a dishcloth or vaccum ;)
Jill from Australia
Creating my way to Success
I love a challenge and like doing things my own way. Sewing is in our family - but I'm just rediscovering it now that I have my own kids to sew for and inspire me!__-------------------------------______
Gia from Greece

Addicted to all things crafty -and in dire need of more time, to actualy attempt do them all.
Sewing is one of my true loves and fabric is a constant favourite; new or old,I cannot resist it. The creation of a three-dimensional object from flat piece of fabric is always a happy moment for me. If it is pretty and useful as well, then I'm ecstatic!

Cameron from
Hello!  I'm Cameron from Homemade.  I love to create . . . just about anything.  I sew, knit, crochet, paper craft, have a kiln that needs to be hooked up and a pottery wheel that needs to be dusted off.  My two kids keep me grounded and remind me of what is MOST important in life, and my husband may be the most patient man on Earth.  In between all theis, I work nights as an emergency room nurse.  Sounds exciting, right?  It is - I love my life!

sew la vie!
I'm a software developer from Israel. I sew clothes, quilts, bags, pillows, and other stuff. I love matching fabric weight, color, texture with pattern or concept or idea, and making them all come together to a beautiful unique creation (or fail, as sometimes happens...). I love the learning process, focusing on detail and acquiring skill. It's so much fun! I love meeting other sewing enthusiasts that inspire me, and with whom I can talk about sewing. Oh: and I love cats!
Rikka from Montana

  4. Hi, I would love to join the challenge but I don't know how to sew. Is it possible to join in using other techniques?

    1. Hi! I'm so glad you're interested in joining us. You are welcome to do so. I only ask that you incorporate fabric into your design. Home decor opens up all kinds possibilities for glue guns, furniture tacks, and Mod Podge. The idea behind these challenges is to push ourselves to try something new. I hope you'll accept our challenge.
