At the suggestion of one of my readers, (Jo Anna, thanks again), I’ve started a new Facebook group called The Sewing Curve. In fact, Jo Anna also came up with the name, which I think is perfect for this group (women with curves, who sew, get it?). I really wanted to start a Facebook group, and I’m not sure what I was waiting for. Sometimes, you just have to stop waiting for things to be perfect and just do it. So here it is.
The Sewing Curve is a place for us to share the projects we’re working on or finished, our fitting issues, the sewing patterns we love, our sewing triumphs and anything else you’d like to share as it relates to sewing, patternmaking, plus size fashion, etc.
If you have questions, The Sewing Curve is a good place to ask them because there might be someone in the group that has the answer. I’ll also be visiting the group everyday and giving my 2 cents :-).
To Join the Group
- Click here to go to the group page
- Click “join group” at the top of the page, right under the cover image
- I’ll add you to the group as soon as I’m notified you want to join
- You’re in! It’s that simple
So, head on over there now and I’ll see you there!

I have visited your site before and have communicated with you as well. Winter is coming and I will have more time to give my sewing, so ran to your site again. (Others are so confusing and not near as ‘personal’ or easy to read….thank you again!) I think I signed up for your library before but can’t find it, so tried to sign up again. Problem: I don’t get any email from you. Something is wrong. Please add me to your list.

Thank you….looking forward to starting over, getting re-acquainted and informed,
Darlene, you’re on my email list. I haven’t been sending emails. I’ve been mostly on social media the last few months. I’ll be sending some emails this month, so stay tuned. I’m so glad you have more time to sew.
Great to see this group, but like Barbara in May 2014
I sadly can’t join you here :~( I don’t connect to Twitter, Facebook
or the other “Social Media” sites, nor will I change my mind as I
value my privacy while I still have some.
That said I’ll follow where I can and I wish you and all sewers
a fun, rewarding time.
I understand, Lucy. You have to do what’s comfortable for you and what gives you peace of mind. Thanks for any support you give. It’s very much appreciated.
Thank you for being willing to share yourself. Just looking at this site and reading your story has revived me. I am a woman who lacked the confidence to step out. But I fill so supported by your website. Please continue to share. I’m trying to connect with you on every media. I guess no questions at this point. I am feeling very motivated right now.
Thanks again for just being you!
Welcome to our community, Theresa. I’m glad to have you here. I will definitely continue to share and I’m glad you’re feeling motivated. We are here to support one another.
Thanks for reading!

Hi Katrina, your videos are very informative, for your tutorials you use software for your pattern drafting, is this method difficult to learn and what software do you use?
Hi Sharon, I use PatternMaster Boutique from http://www.wildginger.com. They have free demos you can download so you can see how it works.
I didn’t find it difficult to learn. They give you written instructions and the software has a demo of the functions. You do need to know some patternmaking, but you don’t have to be an expert.
Hi! can’t wait to be in the group. Thanks!
You’re welcome, Juanita. We’re glad to have you!
i so wish i could join you on facebook, BUT …….. i just don’t trust it. silly, right?
i have to also say that it disturbs me that almost all bloggers have jumped on the facebook wagon as a chat or rather conversation group. i wish you all would use something like yahoo groups or even a separate forum.
i guess i’m just behind the curve, as usual.
No Barbara, I don’t think it’s silly at all. I was skeptical at first about Facebook also. But now I’m comfortable with it.
As bloggers, we like to be wherever our readers are hanging out. And it was actually one of my readers who suggested the group. But if you ever change your mind, you know where to find us. 🙂
