A lot of the work that has taken place on sewlikearockstar.com has been with techy behind-the-scenes stuff and sometimes it may not look like much is going on. That's why we have created this "NEWS" page and you'll find info about all the new features and improvements that we've been sneaking in while you weren't looking! New goodies (with links when appropriate!) can be found here. Any known issues that members may be experiencing will also be posted here.

We had a really great website launch and want to thank everyone for hanging in there with us! The development team has been working nonstop since launch day, making sure everything is running smoothly so we can begin adding all of the exciting new features we have planned! And we really do have some amazing community features coming soon.
One quality-of-life improvement that just went live as of this writing..
- Lesson Viewer - The text-based lesson list (not the thumbnails) has been improved. The titles are now links that will take you to the lessons (finally!)
We have some big website announcements coming soon, and more updates will be posted as ongoing work continues toward a most spectacular website and experience for all the sewists out there. Do check back again soon!
