For as long as I can remember I have loved libraries. My Mom started taking me to the library when I was very young, and to this day I love: the way they smell; the not so quiet quiet; the coolness; and the endless learning potential. To this day I have a library card and my local library is in walking distance from my home.
When I wanted to start sewing, I immediately thought I would take classes to learn everything I needed. What I didn’t know was that the learning potential on the internet is endless. And these resources are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When I take homework home from a class, or when I’m in my home sewing I can always tap into these resources to get help when I need it.
Personally I wanted organize my resources and I wanted the information I’ve been able to gather on my blog. This page will continue to evolve over time. The format will probably change but for now …The Library is open.
