There’s a tendency to think nothing is made in the United States anymore. Why is that? Thanks to Matthew Burnett, co-founder of Maker’s Row, that couldn’t be further from the truth. http://money.cnn.com/…/tech…/upstart30-makers-row/index.html?

I just taught my first Jo-Ann sewing class. The students were great, we had a ton of fun! I passed the rigors (background check, etc) of becoming a independent sewing instructor at Jo-Ann at the Towne Center Plaza in Fayetteville, NY.

DO YOU EVER WORRY ABOUT PURCHASING FABRIC ONLINE? Not sure if the fabric is the exact color that you need? If so, here are few reasons why you should always purchase a fabric swatch first.
1. A fabric swatch allows you to see the exact color, not the color on your computer monitor.
2. You get to feel the texture of the fabric. Important for coordinating your fabrics.
3. Do you want or need lightweight, medium-weight or heavyweight fabric? A fabric swatch eliminates your fabric weight questions.
4. You get to see the fabric in your (home, office) light, not the light that the picture was taken in. Studio lighting is always brighter and better than the lighting in our homes and/or offices.
