Boost your confidence – sew with us!

Join our community and learn while you create.

In our years running our sewing pattern company and sewing blog, we’ve noticed something: everyone has more fun (and learns better) when they sew together.

Have you ever wished you had a group to tackle new sewing projects with outside of a classroom?  Or a place to ask questions on a specific pattern or project?

What about ideas on ways to customize a pattern? Or detailed step-by-step photos
and video?

That’s what we’re here for.

Join a Sewalong as it happens and get detailed instruction, along with a community of sewists to share with. Or use our detailed past Sewalongs as guides. They’re here for you forever, and they’re totally free.

Grab your scissors and some tea and join us on this sewing journey — together.
