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, home DIY, owning my own business or self sufficiency. I am interested in many social issues that affect our time on this planet – poverty, homelessness, over taxation, nature, our waters.
I enjoy a good photograph and painting and try to do my best to learn those crafts.
I just recently began playing the piano after a 35 year hiatus from lessons.
I have a soft spot for a historical drama…
Feel free to chime in on a comment line anywhere on the site, I read it all.
