Stitching Galore

“All great programmers learn the same way. They poke the box. They code something and see what the computer does. They change it and see what the computer does. They repeat the process again and again until they figure out how the box works.”
Seth Godin

{i wanted to share what's going on in the sewing room}

In this cigar box, I keep one little swatch of every fabric I buy.

All of my threads - mettler 100% silk and 100% cotton.

Scored these cigar boxes for $4 at a cigar shop, perfect for organizing the sewing room.

In the threads, the fabrics, the ironing, the cutting, the measuring, the stitching. 

My sewing machine is a Janome 7330 Magnolia. I use it for stitching paper, fabric, etc.
