Dear Sewing and Quilting Enthusiast,
Quilting and sewing are two of the most time-honored skills in the world. Humans have created practical clothing and decorative accents for thousands of years! The basics are still the same, but now we have so many choices in fabric—color, weave, style, texture—the possibilities for what we can create are virtually limitless. And the tools available to us now would make our ancient ancestors green with envy. From time-saving rotary cutters to sewing machines, sewing and quilting is easier and more fun than ever. And we have tons of delightful projects for you to create for friends and family—just remember to make something for yourself!
Sewing and quilting are growing in popularity, and you don’t need a lot of equipment to get started. Grab a needle, thread, scissors, and fabric, and you’re ready to begin!
Even better, sewing and quilting creates community. It can make friends of strangers and bring families closer together. Sewing and quilting are multigenerational pursuits. From children to seniors, there are projects everyone can take on with confidence.
We Like Sewing is your premier resource for sewists of all skill levels, to build and refine your skills—with the advice and information you need to ensure that you can master the basics through advanced sewing and quilting techniques.

My grandma Sharon was an avid sewist and taught me the importance of sewing on a button, hemming my own jeans, and always being open to learning something new. I credit her with instilling in me my deep love of all things sewing.
Even if you’re a seasoned sewist or quilter, you know there’s always going to be a new project—and with it may come a new technique for you to learn. Join us, and we can all learn and grow together—We Like Sewing is for sewists, by sewists!
