Blog of the Month: Sew Maris
June 19, 2013
I am unsure how I ever missed this month's gold mine that is the Blog of the Month: Sew Maris. This lovely blog is chock-full of tutorials and sewing lessons that any sewer could use. The first post I discovered was "3 ways to Gather Fabric". This post in itself pays for the time spent googling to find this month's blog. I had just heard of the second method Maris outlines and was going to try it this weekend on a new skirt pattern but now that I have seen her third version, I'm not even going to bother with #2 any more. Then, I found her sure-fire method of perfectly positioning a zipper. I am hooked.
Maris is a self described "sewing nerd" and even has a collection of Japanese sewing notions. She learned to sew from her mother and in turn loves to pass on her gift to others in her in-home studio which hosts private and semi private classes as well as kids camps. You can read Maris' testimonials here and learn about all the fun her classes bring. You can find all of Maris' tutorials/lessons here on her tutorial page or you might be better off finding what you want on the rightside of the page under categories, of which there are many. My personal favorites are: Heirloom sewing and Pattern adjusting & drafting.
Sew Maris is a great blog for all levels of sewing ethusitists because even if you "know it all" you can still pick up neat tips and tricks from others who have been around the block too. I can tell Maris has many great stories to tell and many equally great time savers as well as great finishes to share. This blog is get bookmarked!
