"Sew Everything Workshop"

A big thank you to Diana Rupp, author of "Sew Everything Workshop" and founder of Make in NYC!

We had a great time with Diana, she was down in Austin promoting her fantastic book and came by to make some awesome fabric Valentines with some crafty folks! Using blank note cards and envelopes, she showed us how to cut out cute little designs from the fabrics, add interfacing to the back, and then how to sew the fabric onto the cards using our machines and decorative stitches. Thank you, we had a blast!!
If you don't have "Sew Everything Workshop", you've got to check it out, it's one of the most comprehensive and easy to read sewing books with lots of patterns to use as well.

I was so bummed to miss this - I was really wanting to go. Sounds like it was very cool! I hope I can get the book soon and hit another fun event soon! :)

Hooray for your blog! :)
