Some quick news…

Video Tutorials

I’ve created two new video tutorials of how to register and customize your profile and how to create your first post. If you’re a reader or commenter who hasn’t take the plunge and posted yet, these videos will step you through what happens (while I babble senselessly in the background). If you’ve ever wanted to hear what an English person who has lived on the border of Kentucky for six years ends up sounding like while she clears her throat and stumbles over her words, today is your lucky day.

Vintage Sewing Academy

Puu’s post earlier this week reminded me just quite how much useful reference information we have here on the site, but it’s not always that easy to find when you want to refer to it again. I’ve started collecting links to reference posts up on the main site menu under the heading Vintage Sewing Academy to rectify this. If anyone has any suggestions of explanatory posts that would fit up there, don’t hesitate to get in touch.


We now have 376 active members, so I need everyone reading to raise their hand and give me an imaginary high five right now. Yeah!

Laura Mae

If you’re a fan of WeSewRetro on facebook, you’ll already know that our very own Laura Mae is currently a finalist in the Threads Ultimate Sewing Challenge. Last time I checked the voting, she was in 2nd place so take a moment to head over to the poll and vote for her amazing emerald green gown because she’s shared some incredibly inspiring work with us and totally deserves the recognition.

Sewing Magazines

Speaking of Threads (possibly my favorite sewing mag), now the nights are getting colder I’m looking to spend more time curled up with a cup of tea and a good sewing / vintage magazine. What sewing/craft or vintage related magazines do you read? I’d love to hear your suggestions.

Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends and Happy November to everyone else! 😀
