here is where i've compiled all my favorite sewing things.
pattern companies, stores, books, tools, blogs, podcasts, if i like it then it's on this list.
the pattern is the backbone of your project. for those of us who didn't take home economics in school having a pattern with excellent instructions is essential. i can not recommend the below patterns enough for that.
sometimes one pattern isn't enough, when that is the case dive into a sewing book!
here are some of my favorite brick and motor and internet shops.
podcasts & audio books
it's a poor craftsman who blames his tools. i've used all of these products and love them.
