Lots of new content coming up

PicMonkey Collage

I was recently reviewing all of the comments and requests on the readers survey from earlier this year to see how much I was getting done.  The simple answer is – not enough!  Naturally we’ve all got different interests and in sewing there is a HUGE range of things you can be interested in, an infinite number of projects to sew, a never-ending array of sewing tips and techniques to try.

Try as I might, although I am bursting with ideas, I simply can’t get content out on the site quick enough despite working as fast as I can – I’m only human.  Every week, almost every day, someone will write and ask, can you do me a pattern or tutorial for a ……..  I’d love to be able to say YES to everyone, but there is only so much time a person has in a day.  Then it dawned on me – there is a limited amount of time ONE person has in a day – so if you need more time, you need more people!

So who do I know that sews, that can help me out?  Well hello – only about a gazillion people I’ve ‘met’ online from other sewing blogs.  Yes, there are apparently other sewing blogs out there – of course you shouldn’t look at those, everything you need is here 😉

A fresh perspective for the future

So I asked if anyone would be interested in helping me out with some sewing projects, and I’m delighted to tell you that some of my favorite sewing bloggers answered my call for help.  Starting soon, you’ll see even more great content on the site.

We’ll be getting on average, one article per week from someone else other than me for a change.  Someone with perhaps a different set of skills, different sewing interests and experiences, and new tips and tricks to share with you, and access to much better fabric shops than I’ve got!

Contributors

Here is a sneak peek of the ladies who’ll be keeping us all entertained with their ideas.  Some might be familiar to you, perhaps some not.  Every time you get an article from one of the site contributors, they’ll have a brief bio about themselves at the bottom and a link through to their contributor page where you can learn more.

I’m very excited to be able to bring some new content and some new fresh sewing ideas to the site, and hope you enjoy learning more about the hand-picked team and they share their sewing tips and a little bit about themselves.

Of course you don’t get rid of me that easily – I’ll still be sharing all the stuff I make each week, and now these ladies will be raising the bar and I’ll have to try to keep up !

    I am excited (and relieved) for you, Deby! I love everything you do and agree you can’t do more than humanly possible to satisfy anyone. Bringing in a small army of quality sewists is just the answer and we will love them too! I am looking forward to what they’ll bring to “the sewing table”!

      Hi Yvette. Thanks for volunteering to help me fill the site with all the best content. At the moment, I’ve got a full team, but f you have an idea for a tutorial or article, by all means email me over the info or your proposal to take a look at. And some examples of your work, writing, and photos please. Thanks.
