  • To be kind. We strive to be the friendliest, most helpful sewing site on the internet.
  • “Sewing is just the excuse”
  • We are building a great community, that is brought together because of sewing.
  • We create a space for people to come together - through discussions and live interactions.
  • We are a TEACHING site - because we want even newbies to enjoy building great projects.
  • Sally believes anyone can build almost any project… because even the most complicated project is done one seam at a time.
  • We offer cutting edge sew alongs that encourage everyone to get involved - real time and face-to-face.
  • We are NOT a “PDF pattern company” although...
  • We are doing our best to create methods for every type of customer to obtain our projects - as long as it is in line with the previously stated objectives.
