Sewing Supplies Online


Because I live in a very rural area I always look for the best places for hobby craft supplies and where to buy sewing supplies online. Although I make upcycled clothes I sometimes combine old fabric with new to get the desired effect. I always look in the clearance sections to get the most out of my money. This taggie blanket is a perfect example of combining old with new! There are many online stores and I’ve used a few. There are pros and cons to them all but putting it simply…
