I started (re)sewing recently. I learned the very very basics in high school. But not a lot. Let’s just say I had to relearn everything.
So I hope this info I have found will find you sewing anons well.
YouTube helped so much. Seriously, it would be such a struggle without it. Here are some of my favorite sewing instructors on YouTubers:
There’s many free sewing books to check out on archive.org. My recommendations are the Singer sewing reference library series. They’re pretty dated but the information is still really good and super helpful. Basically just search sewing in all books/texts.
I have the Brother CS7000i. I got it on Amazon for $200. It’s well worth saving up for because it comes with a ton of things that makes your life easier. It’s one of the highest rated machines at the lowest price point.
Here are some places that I buy extremely inexpensive but exceptional quality fabric or notions:https://www.wawak.com/
- notions and supplieshttps://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/https://www.fabricwholesaledirect.com/https://fabriclore.com/
-from India. I’ve done the math. Buy purchasing around $USD100 it approximately makes each item regardless of yardage around or under $5. Figure it out by cart total ÷ total number of items. So, even though it’s $20 shipping it’s still worth it because you’re still getting a better deal than most other places.https://www.dharmatrading.com/fabric/fabric-from-dharma-trading-co.html
-best prices on silk. I don’t dye fabric so I buy their colored silk.https://buttonsgaloreandmore.com/
-buttons are cool. These are bulk buttons that can be used for sewing or craft projects. https://www.mjtrim.com/https://www.pacifictrimming.com/https://laceheaven.com/
-lace is sexy idc what you say.
I hope some of you find any of this helpful. Sorry for the blogpost.
Happy sewing, anons.
