Tutorials & sewing patterns

We take sewing seriously. As a rule, of course, we sew with our own fabrics – not only are they irresistible, sewing with them gives us an opportunity to put them to the test. Over the years we have picked up a few tricks and can offer some tips on sewing techniques and pattern making. What’s more, we draw upon a fantastic network of professionals for whom sewing is their daily bread. Our “tips and tutorials” posts reveal secret tips and tricks for home sewers and lay out detailed tutorials for beginners as well as more advanced sewers. We want to write about the topics that interest you most, so drop us a line to tell us what you want to read up on and we’ll do our best to come through!
