When I initially started my sewing journey, I had absolutely no idea there was so much information available. That old saying “it’s a small wold”, doesn’t really fit when it comes to sewing. It’s a very, very large world. There are so many resources, tools, organizations, books, online classes, conferences, teachers, bloggers …
It all … very quickly … becomes overwhelming.
When chaos creeps into my life, my type A personality takes over and determines I must create a spreadsheet or database to collect this information. Seriously, since I’m a beginner, I don’t need difficult patterns right now. But one day soon, I hope to be able to sew By Hand London’s Elisalex Dress. I covet this dress. And I want to sew it. But seriously. It would be a waste of time and money to attempt to sew that at my current skill level.
Though I’m getting better. (I just knocked out that Sexy Secretary Skirt from my Craftsy course.) I want to be able to FIT that bodice on the Elisalex dress to fit the way it should. I’ve got to get better before I can attempt something like that. But I digress … back to the World of Sewing.
Resources … overwhelming … what’s a girl to do?
I decided to create my own library. That way when I’m at a ASG (American Sewing Guild) Meeting, or just having dinner with a sewing friend and they are rattling off pattern companies, websites and more. Instead of having a million pieces of paper to keep up with. I can shelve my new information in The Library, and visit it whenever I need it. It can be accessed from Blue Sunday’s Home Page, just click on The Library. 🙂
It’s nothing fancy, just a listing of resources I want to keep at my fingertips whenever I need it. I’d be a crappy blogger if I didn’t share. ENJOY!
