Sewing articles in the recent news you will enjoy

I love to read all kinds of things and I read about quilts whenever I can. I encountered some sewing article in the recent news you will enjoy. Or maybe not but I am sharing them with you anyway! Here are 4 tidbits I've run across lately, enjoy!


This article caught my eye because I love live theater. Having my molecules in the same room with the actors creates my favorite kind of art to experience. This play involves a sewing machine, cancer, religion and love. Anews-1 pretty powerful combination. I am intrigued because you don't often see a sewing machine on stage.

I no longer make my own garments but I still am intrigues with those who do. I find many new sewists begin sewing because they love fashion and want to create their own look and style. The article Sewing up Fancy relates the story of Amanda Madden who is doing just that and succeeding. Yay for her!

Quilters are generous every darn day, I am overwhelmed with their love for the news-4rest of the world. What piqued my interest in this article is that they had a display of everything before they sent it off. Isn't that a terrific idea? I would go and see that display.

It reminds me of when my aunt got married years ago.  I am talking like 50 years ago! She spread out all her gifts and people came and oohed and aahed over them. I was only 5 or 6 but I thought it was great. I've never seen it since.

Back to sewing articles, who got me off track? Oh, I did. Nevermind.hopi_quilting_t715

The final article I want to share today is about a woman who gives lectures on Hopi Quilting. I know nothing about this topic, I wish I could go to her presentation. She wants to have Hopi quilting valued at the same level as other Hopi arts.

She gives a talk about once a month and her next one is May 6th. This was quite a fascinating glimpse into what she does. If you read only one of these articles, this is the one I would recommend. Click here!

I have the same thought as I end this post as when I began, quilters are extraordinary and share so much. They create for others, teach others and put sewing into other arts.

I'm inspired, I'm going to go sew. How about you?

Sew happy!
