About Me

I like to sew...I like the Mets...that's why its called SewAmazin!

I am a sewing and needleart enthusiast. SewAmazin is where I keep track of my sewing, needlework, embroidery, quilting and other crafty projects. I sew, embroider and quilt on a Husqvarna Viking Designer SE and a Designer Ruby, serge on a Huskylock 936 and I use 4D Professional Embroidery Software. I've experimented now and then with free motion quilting using my Fabric Mover with Stitch Regulator. I also have the ER10 felting machine, but have only used it a few times. What can I say . . . I'm an experienced beginner at everything!

Why do I keep this blog? This is where I get to "show and tell" my sewing and needleart projects and experiences, kind of like my virtual scrapbook. It's surprising to me how many different types of sewing projects I've attempted each year.

I share what I'm working on and how I'm making it; hopefully my projects will inspire visitors. Feedback and comments are welcome. Whenever possible, I share links to instructions and supplies or resources when I can find them.

You may notice that many of my projects have a recurring theme -- they look like or are made for Westies! That's because we have two terriers (sometimes referred to as the 'Pesties") in our household. They think they run the place. Keli is a West Highland Terrier and Penny is a Wauzer (Westie/Schnauzer mix). They have their own blog, Keli's Korner~The Westie & The Wauzer, though we have not blogged there very much lately.

Some of my projects also feature our favorite baseball team - the Mets! I like to use baseball fabric, embroidery, trims and anything else I may find to make bags, bibs, shirts and more personal and gift items.

I also write occasionally about my gardening and a few other topics.

Shop SewAmazin:
In 2011 I opened SewAmazin shops on multiple online marketplaces where I sell some of my fabric creations (see the Shop.SewAmazin.com link along the top of this blog and other shop links in the sidebar). Some of the projects that appear in this blog are available for sale or can be requested by contacting me, EXCEPT garments (for people), home decor items (example: chair seat covers, slipcovers and window treatments) and all bags and totes that have been made using Lazy Girl Designs patterns are NOT available for sale.

SewAmazin's Studio blog:
Launched in October 2014, SewAmazin's Studio (originally titled SewAmazin's Showcase) is a blog for promoting handmade artisans, featuring some of my own items for sale and de-stashing sewing supplies. The mobile store is now open and can be found on the SewAmazin's Studio Shop link. Please stop by the blog to see all the wonderful handmade creations!
