EverSewn Sparrow 30 Review

Last year I finally gave up my fight with my Kenmore sewing machine. I had had that creature for nearly 20 years and it progressively gave me headaches (ever have to use pliers to remove a needle jammed in the machine… yeah…).

Crochet for a Cause

I've mentioned a few times about crocheting/knitting for charities and other community organizations. It's something that is particularly important to me. Recently, I decided to take part in helping one of Loki's Instagram friends. Yes, he has his own Instagram account (yep, he really does... @lokitevye in case your interested) and many of his followers … Continue reading Crochet for a Cause
