Looking for help!

 
Do you want to be a Fabricista?

 
Will you help us?!
We are looking for 3 Seamstresses/Seamsters to create a piece for a  blog post to feature our readers.
 
 
What is the post about?
We are doing a post about what to make with different types of knit.
Therefore we would like to see what our readers can do with knits.
 
 
How do I become a guest blogger?
Email us a little bio about you and a few examples of your recent work.
 (Especially any pictures of knit garments!)
If you are a blogger, please include a link to your blog.
 
 
 
What will I need?
Fabric Mart will send you a gift certificate to order your fabric for the project if you are chosen.
You will be able to chose which pattern you will use.
We will let you know what type of knit we would like you to sew with by email if selected.
 
 
 
What would I need to do?
All you need to do is sew up a garment by the deadline, photograph it, and write about how you made it and any tips you could pass on to fellow sewers about using that material.
 
 
 
Who will be chosen?
We are looking for 3 entries who have knowledge in sewing and have practiced sewing knits.
We will base our decision on workmanship, writing skills, and clear images.
(We prefer to see the garments modeled in the images.)

Made By A Fabricista: Speaking My Truth

Happy Saturday All! In these unsettling times, I hug my children a little tighter, spend quality time embracing them, and cherish every moment even more. This pandemic has allowed me to appreciate deep conversations about racial injustice, police brutality, and their feelings about growing up black . My daughter Arielle, a happy go lucky child, shuns away as she is always being questioned about her race and which box she checks off on an application. She hates the fact that she is consistently asked by her peers and teachers at school if she is biracial, Hispanic, or Black . She has often times questioned her own identity, yet she gladly responds to anyone who asks, “ I am black and I am a part of the human race ”. My son despises the news media (especially social media) and doesn't watch it at all. The death of his older brother and guns triggers a fear that we pray he overcomes. Over the past few weeks, I have read some of the most unreal remarks and comments about "

Made by a Fabricista: A Work Wardrobe with a $50 Fabric Budget

Can you save money by sewing your own clothes?  Well, that all depends on a lot of factors!  I decided to challenge myself to make a new Spring work wardrobe with a $50 budget for fabric.  I know, I know- that doesn't include your patterns, notions and miscellaneous things like interfacing and lining.  For me, those are already sunk costs, because I already have them.  By ordering during one of Fabric Mart's $2/$3/$4 sales, I was able to make 8 items- 2 pants, 1 skirt, 1 dress, and 3 tops.  Here's my exact order: This took me about 6 weeks once I started.  I usually sew after dinner for about an hour or two every day.  It's my relaxation time.  I dove right in the deep end with the jacket first. I absolutely love this fabric!  It is so bright and cheery.    I made the jacket with Vogue 2957, an out of print Anne Klein designer pattern. The fabric is a Milly Cady suiting which I found challenging to work with.  It feels delightful, but it is tough as nails.
