Your Favorite Sewing/Vintage Blogs

As I’m sure we’re all now tired of hearing, Google Reader is shutting down tomorrow. In my 11th-hour attempt to organize a replacement reader to keep track of favorite blogs, I’ve noticed that in the hundreds of blogs I follow, quite a few have creaked to a halt – I love a good shake-up, so rather than import my google reader favorites into Feedly (which is exceptionally easy, btw), I’m going to start again from scratch.

Here’s how you can help fill my feed reader back up: what are your favorite sewing or vintage blogs? Drop a link in the comments so we can all check them out and I can add them to my reader. Bonus points for undiscovered gems – doesn’t matter if the blog is not in English as Google Translate does a passable job and I’m fluent in the international language of Pretty Pictures.

If you too are scrambling to find a reader replacement, Bloglovin’ appears to be a popular choice and Feedly is my personal fav.

It’s probably a good time to summarise all the ways you can keep up with WeSewRetro for those who have been caught unawares….


We’re on Bloglovin here and if you just want a raw feed to import into your reader of choice you can find that here.


You can subscribe to our email mailing list here to get all posts delivered straight to your inbox. Because we post A LOT and nobody needs 15 emails a day from us, subscribers receive one email a week (on a Friday morning) that contains all the posts from that week.


All our posts are pushed out to Twitter so by following us here, you’ll be notified of each one


If you’re on Facebook and haven’t checked out our page, go look – it’s a fun mix of photos and resources from all kinds of sources, not just this blog. Questions are asked and answers are given. Good times are had by all.


I hesitate to mention our pinterest account because you may lose hours of your life picking through the amazingness. In addition to following us, you can sign up to contribute to our community vintage pattern board. If there’s a pinterest maven out there who wants to help out as a volunteer pinner, drop me an email – I could use a helper to manage the board where we pin all our posts as I am woefully behind.

I'm the editor at WeSewRetro so don't hesitate to get in touch with any problems or questions. In addition to keeping the good ship WeSewRetro afloat, I do an amateurish but enthusiastic job of raising a couple of girls, faff around with computers in my day job, and study for a masters in literature at night. Somewhere amongst all that, I like to sew.
