Sewing is one of my newer crafts and with an active toddler one I seldom get to indulge in. But, when Mayor Garcetti, soon followed by the CDC, recommended people wear cloth face masks when out in public it was time to bust on the needle and thread -- well sewing machine and thread. My hand sewing is crap. But, give me a machine and a good presser foot and I'm off to the races. Anyhoo, my video studio had to be turned over to my sewing studio
I made so many masks that I decided to take the plunge and opened the Carrie Craft Geek Emporium to sell them. I do hope you'll check it out and make it a favorite as I am planning to expand its offerings including some of my own knitting patterns. (Check out the instagram to see some of my original work)
I have not abandoned the YouTubes, however. New videos are coming soon. I'm busy prepping for an exciting new video: toilette paper core crafts for knitters! Stay tuned.
It's been a minute since I posted a video. I've been busy making cloth face coverings for friends and families and had to put a hold on editing videos. Or shooting videos. (My craft room is a mess of fabric and thread right now!)
But, I got a really good one coming on Monday. So, make sure you head over to the YouTube Channel and hit that subscribe button so you don't miss out!
There are definitely ups and downs. But, one positive is this past week I was able to put my crafting skills to good use. On Wednesday, Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti recommended people start wearing non-medical, cloth face coverings.
I was able to make these for my family and friends. It definitely feels good to able to make things for people that is helpful during this time. And I have to say generally, seeing the way people are pulling together to help each other through these time is heartening.
But, busing out the sewing machine, means putting way the computer. I am behind on my editing. So, my next video I'm aiming to post on Tuesday , Wednesday the lates.
Also, I got a video request! I have not forgotten and will be shooting a video soon of my slowing down my knitting and concentrating on what I do with my left hand while lever knitting.
I'm Carrie CraftGeek. I've been knitting for 20 years and crafting my whole life. I love to share my passion with the world!
