This is a list of my favorite websites for sewing. It originated in 2015. Keep an eye out for 2022 updates.

The laboratory of sewing

I’m updating this site after a few years of stagnation. the list below is being updated and verified by me. I can’t wait to share my discoveries with you.

I love Sound of Music, and a few of my favorite things is one of my all-time favorite songs.

“Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things”

There’s a lot of information out there for new sewists.  

Even the seasoned sewist can learn a great deal from some of the sewing websites.

I’ve updated this list more than once as I find new favorite websites.  

This list originated in 2015. Lucy’s list looks something like this:

A few of my Favorite Things on the Internet

It’s the worldwide web….obviously there are more resources out there than anyone can use. I did a version of this blog when I first started sewing. My opinion of the best sewing blogs has evolved. This is an update to that list from last year. In no particular order, of course.
