Awesome! But where to start? I guess a machine would be helpful, right? But which one?! 

I get asked fairly often what machine I recommend for sewing and quilting, and the truth is: there’s no one right answer. It honestly depends on what kind of sewing you expect to do with it. But, I can tell you which machines I prefer, love, and use. 

I really love interviewing people from the sewing and quilting community because I still have so much to learn. This world moves so incredibly fast and people are coming up with amazing ways to integrate sewing into everyday life. One of those people is the awesome Julia Eigenbrodt from the inspiring sewing and crafty blog Stars and Sunshine. She seamlessly fuses technology and sewing together with her adorable 3-D printed hoop necklaces found in her Etsy shop, she also has wonderfully geeky paper piecing patterns in her Craftsy store, and a vibrant and fun Instagram


This is most definitely my most favorite time of year; the changing of the season, cooler temps (although it’s stayed in the 80’s so far – weird!), and that one particular day… Everyone dresses up… Free candy… What’s it called again? Oh, right, HALLOWEEN!

I’m so excited to be sharing a fun, quick, and easy Halloween costume for the Sew Much Fun Blog Hop from Faith and Fabric! Follow along to see other great Halloween crafts and projects from fellow bloggers.

With these last few weeks (maybe, days?!) of summer left, what better way to celebrate these last few remnants of sunny and warm weather than with some fun and flowy peasant style sewing patterns?

Lemme tell you something: I absolutely LOVE yoga waistbands.
