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.
A big thanks to Casey, who is an absolute sweetheart and made us these gorgeous sew-along badges! Pick your favorite, and simply right-click to save to your hard drive. Then upload to your blog's sidebar, with the link of your choice. May I suggest this one?
