Colette Patterns Snippets


The weekly Snippets email from Colette Patterns is one of my absolute favorite resources for sewing tips. Every time it lands in my inbox, I learn a new technique or find out that I’ve been doing something the hard way for years! I always find the subjects to be useful, the tips to be actionable, and the advice to be spot-on. Even if you don’t already get the email, the Coletterie has shared their five favorite Snippets of 2011 on their blog, including tips on working with elastic, organizing your fabric stash, and reinforcing patterns.
