Hem It Up


Come hang out and hem or do a little sewing! What a fun idea, especially if you don't know exactly how to do it. Bring a project, needle and thread and come sit a spell. We love the company.

Machine Rental


Oh No! Did your machine have a hissy? No worries, we have a few great ones ready to go that you can come in and use for $15/4 weeks. We will even set you up with a handy-dandy punch card to keep track. We have cutting tables and space for you to work on projects and you can even ask questions if you like. There is usually a Trained Sewing Instructor, Seamstress or Quilter hanging around the shop to answer questions you might have. (This time is not sewing lessons however)

Dayton is close to Spring City, Cleveland, Athens and more, so join us.

Party Time


Are you in Direct Sales? Mary Kay, Damsel In Defense, Tupperware, Avon, Beauty Counter or Scentsy? Well I have space for you to have your get-together. Stop by and lets look at the calendar

Bias

True bias is a cut made on a 45 degree angle to the selvedge. This direction allows for the most stretch. Bias refers to any line diagonal to the crosswise and lengthwise grains. Most bias pieces are laid on the true bias: the grain line arrow and the pattern's layout instructions will help you align your pattern pieces.

Lining

Fabric, usually silky, that covers the construction details on the inside of the garment, A lining reduces the wearing strain on clothing, extending the useful life of the lined garment.

Fusible

Fabric that has a heat sensitive adhesive on one side that enables it to bind to another fabric.

Casing

Folded and stitched "tunnel" that elastics or ties threaded through.

Hand

The way a fabric feels to the touch: smooth soft, crisp, etc.

Drape

How a fabric hangs in a garment.
