Hello readers! I am currently jetting off to Denver to film an episode of Sew It All TV, but I wanted to make sure to tell you about a guest post I wrote for STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books about the whole craft trend of saying “it’s not your grandma’s sewing!” or some such. The idea for the post came out of a conversation with Melanie about the topic when we realized how much that adage bothered us. As someone who sews styles that my grandmother might have liked, well, it really is my grandma’s sewing. And, in general, crafters have relied on older generations to show us the ropes, if you will.
What do you think of that phrase? Does it bother you at all? Definitely come read the post and jump on in the discussion!
P.S. This is what I look like in a bow turban and no makeup, after waking up at 3:45 to catch a flight (with some "airbrushing" help from Instagram, I can’t lie). Don’t worry, there will be a makeup artist on set and I’ve got pin curls under my turban!
