Resolve to sew.

It's that time again - time to start anew with plans and goals for the coming year. For us creatives, that typically means getting our spaces cleaned up and ready for new projects. 

To get you going on the right track, how about a sewing project that uses some of the fabric scraps you've vowed to use before buying more? Check out the Dritz® key fob hardware and hexi paper piecing shapes we used to make this hexi key fob project. We've got several easy sewing scrap busters on our blog that will help you brush up on basic sewing skills, clear out scrap fabrics, and get ready for a fabulous 2016 filled with sewing!

Get organized, and get sewing.

Just in time for Christmas giving – or receiving.

They’re a hot ticket this time of year – Dritz® Dressforms. Why? If you sew garments, a dressform is indispensable – after all, it’s pretty difficult to design or fit clothing without one. Luckily, we have several styles of Dritz® dressforms for you.

Our new Lady Valet forms are perfect to display; you’ll use our Little Miss My Double child-sized form when sewing kids’ clothing.

Three new tutorials answer all of your questions related to dressforms: we’ll teach you how to choose, use, pad and cover them.  

Oh, Santa, I promise I’ve been good.
