Sewing tutorials (all kinds)

Sewing tutorials (all kinds)
In May 2011 I wrote a message in the sidebar that I wished there was more time in a day as I had not enough time to regularly update this site. Since then I have hardly added to the list of tutorials and as time goes by, more links will become obsolete and more and more tutorials will be written that I have not seen or not the time to post here. There is so much info on the internet now. Since starting this blog a few years ago it has become much easier as well to collect your own favorite links with Pinterest. As much as I loved collecting these links and share them, now is the time to stop thinking that (one day) I will be adding links and update the site. It kept bothering me that I don't have time to do it.
