Notes and News

So what’s been going on in the indie sewing and blogging world? Happy that you asked ūüėČ

From the Studio, I have been hard at work when I can completing my first pattern. I’m hoping to send out a tester call soon.

From around the blogsphere:

With all of the indie pattern sales happening this month I really need to take advantage of them, especially since I lost most my pattern collection this pattern summer to an overseas move.

Until next time, happy sewing…


Sewing Tip: Fabric scissors

Always use fabric shears for fabric and paper scissors for paper and patterns. Trying tying a piece of ribbon around your shears to help others ¬†remember. Also extra scissors sprinkled throughout the house will help with others not running into your sewing space to just “grab a pair”. Ask me how I know

Coming up

As for Secret Garden Studio still working away but this week I see that I am going to have to change-up once again I am doing things if I want to be more productive. This is one thing that is so true for almost any business if you want to work, function, and grow there is always going to be constant edits to the way you do things. Hoping I’m successful.

Hello World!!!!!

Wow!!! It has been a long year and a half for me, with lots of ups and downs, push backs and triumphs, full of naysayers and supporters, but I am so happy to finally start rearing my little head from the depths of trying to start-up my own indie pattern business.

love, work and life

I used to think that the above statement was/would be true. Huh! I can say first hand it’s NOT.¬†Building/starting Secret Garden Studio has been a work of both passion and enjoyment, but it is still WORK. A lot of work when trying to figure out everything on your own (there were many a times I wished I had a mentor), but I am happy doing it . I’m still at the very beginning of my thousand plus mile journey, and I’m only 10 steps in (its more like 9, but I’m being optimistic). I know there will be many more obstacles and hurdles to overcome, but I am soooo looking forward to the challenge.

Keep an eye out for my mini tutorials, sewing tips, pattern reviews, peeps into my studio, sew-alongs, and in the near future, sewing patterns by moi. YAY!!!!

Until next time, happy sewing…
