I'm a sewing enthusiast in Beacon, New York, with a love of all things retro. This site is all about tutorials, tips, inspiration, and lots of spirited discussion about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender. My first book, Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing, is now out from STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books! Also look for my line "Patterns by Gertie" from Butterick.
Good evening, dears! I'm just popping in to tell you about a cool sale happening soon at Colette Patterns. My friend and designer extraordinaire Sarai wrote to give us the heads-up that she'll be sending out a 30% off coupon with her mailing list tomorrow. If you want in on that (and I know you do!) head on over to this post on the Colette Patterns blog. You just need to sign up for the mailing list to get the coupon. Happy pattern shopping!
