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.
As always, thank you all for your enthusiasm for my latest giveaway! I'm pleased to announce that WendyBird1015 is the winner of the two books, Sewing Basics and Fabrics A to Z. Wendy, I hope you will find much inspiration in these titles.
Thanks again to STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books for providing the books!
