Hi, my name is Cathy and this is a personal blog I keep about my sewing, sewing related news and whatever strikes me.
This site began in the summer of 2007, during a time when I had this notion in my head that fashion sewing was dead. In fact, I had probably only sewn just a handful of garments over the course of a decade! I missed it and I was on this quest to find out if it was true…was fashion sewing dead?
(Update: To my great relief, and through much discovery, fashion sewing was not dead! )
The internet opened up a world in sewing I had not known before, or had even participated in. There was patternreview.com and Burda Style and Threads Magazine and Blogs! Oh the Blogs!!! I could just read and read and read! Wow! People were doing some really great things!
So as a means to discover this whole world of sewing again, a world that had literally been my life at one time, I started writing about it and that’s where the name of this blog came from, Sewing For Life
…and when you stitch the words together… Sewingforlife!.
Welcome to my little blog.
Today I write about many different subjects, some include cooking/baking, dog raising, weight loss, or self sufficiency.
Feel free to chime in on a comment line anywhere on the site, I read it all.
