Can I copy/remake/sell something using one of your ideas or tutorials?
Yes, yes and yes. I hardly invented sewing. I like free idea-sharing, so have at 'er.
Can I post a link to one of your posts?
Absolutely, as long as it is related to crafts, etc. - you'll make me feel a little bit famous! You can post my photos along with your link, but I would certainly appreciate if you linked back to my blog.
Do you sell advertising?
No, I'm a terrible salesperson. That said, if you'd like me to test a pattern or sew something from a fabric or pattern you've created then blog about how fabulous it is ('cause I know it's going to be fabulous), please send me an email. I'd get a free pattern/whatever and you'd get the benefit of my readers knowing about your product.
Why do you do giveaways?
Sharing makes me happy. Also, I sew/craft far more stuff than one household needs, so I have to give some away.
Sewing Dork, I have featured you on my blog - why aren't you sporting my button?
I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read, comment on and link to my blog. I find blogs that are not too cluttered easier to navigate and therefore I like to keep my own blog streamlined.
Also, please note that I am techno-challenged and configuring buttons and such would take me 3 times as long as anyone else. I'd rather be sewing.
Who are you anyway?
Canadian. Old house, big garden. Wife and keeper of two children. Part-time job that interferes with crafting time, but financially supports it. Creative thinker (no math nerd in me whatsoever). Chemical-free home. No cell phone, no t.v. time. Pianist and singer. Can't work a Mixmaster, but have been known to wield power tools on occasion.
And why do you sew?
For a lot of the same reasons you do. You can remake and refashion; you can create something you won't see on a store shelf; you can carry on the tradition of all the women before you; you can fulfill your creative needs; you can brag about stuff on a blog. I grew up with grandmothers and a mother who sewed so there were always scraps at hand. My Barbies were dressed in handmades. Dork that I am, I made each kid in my fourth grade class a personalized case for their recorder. Yup. Dork. I haven't taken sewing lessons, and I am too lazy to figure out how to make my patterns into PDF format, so what you see is what you get. Thanks for stopping in!
