At Sewing USA, we are all about fabric, thread, patterns and buttons, and love to share our passion with sewing professionals and beginners, alike.
How many times have you come across a sewn-at-home item of clothing, be it a fabulous summer frock, a cute cushion cover, or a pretty little tea cozy? Isn’t there something so special, so warm and fuzzy about these home-sewn things, each of which comes with a story? And how often have you admired such pieces thinking “if only I could sew…”. Well we, at Sewing USA, are here to tell you that you can sew and you will! And we will help you each step of the way, beginning with helping you purchase the right supplies.
Isn’t there something so special, so warm and fuzzy about these home-sewn things, each of which comes with a story?
It is our dream to establish a community of sewing enthusiasts, sharing and exchanging ideas, designs, patterns, techniques, tips, and tricks. As our beginners embark upon this creative adventure, they will have much to learn about materials, fabrics, tools, threads, sewing techniques, and stitches. It is our team’s mission to support and encourage them, as well as provide them with guidance in the form of DIYs and tutorials on patterns, techniques, and necessary supplies.
We wish to channel our passion to sewing beginners, who are probably starting out with the nearly-universal and very basic lockstitch. Through our tutorials, we encourage them to take on one challenging task after another, so that in a matter of a few months, they are completing complicated sewing projects and embellishing them with embroidered patterns.
At Sewing USA, we believe that the age-old craft of sewing isn’t just an industrial necessity or a skillful household hobby. It’s an expression, creation, and tradition enriched with the narrative of love, meaning, and memories.
Cushions, sewn long ago by our grandmothers, are our prized possessions, and those sewn today, are our future family heirlooms. Colorful quilts, much like photo albums, remind us of the laughter and stories shared when our mothers and their quilt-making friends got together to sew these strategically patched-up wonders.
The blankets sewn from cutouts of our old T-shirts are like tokens of fond memories stitched together, taking us back to the many cherished occasions on which we wore them. Fancy, frilly outfits, we once sewed for our precious little ones, transform into the sweetest, most delightful keepsakes.
[Sewing is] an expression, creation, and tradition enriched with the narrative of love, meaning, and memories.
Things we sew ourselves or those sewn by our loved ones, come to represent so much more than initially anticipated since they all come with a story. Our sewing comes from a special place in our hearts and homes.
Sewing projects – whether meant to be personalized gifts, tokens of love, DIYs for our homes, or activities we share with our friends – are ultimately about family, friendship, and bonding. Simply put, sewing brings people together, binding them with each deliberate stitch.
Our Primary Mission
Sewing is a journey that begins with the right sewing machine. And we’re here to help you find one!
Picking out the right sewing machine is an important investment and an exciting decision. Beginners need guidance not only in choosing between a mechanical, computerized, or electronic machine, they also need to be well-informed on the variety and combination of operations, such as the built-in-stitch functions, etc. offered by the many brands and models.
Sewing is a journey that begins with the right sewing machine.
Some of the questions frequently asked – How are the noise levels of this sewing machine (after all we don’t want to annoy our neighbors!)? Does this machine offer a wide range of stitch lengths and widths? How many built-in-stitches does it offer? Can it also be used for quilting? Is its bobbin system easy to wind and load? (We’ve seen many beginners get particularly discouraged and frustrated by bobbin-related issues). This is where we come in. To guide and help you find a machine that works for you.
And we won’t just leave you there. After you decide which machine to purchase, we will show you how to keep up a healthy machine maintenance and repair system. When to oil, where to oil and how often etc., are just some of the questions our team addresses.
