Hi There! I’m Kristal and welcome to my blog. I started this blog as a way to document my adventures and (misadventures) as a beginner sewer and to encourage myself and others who would like to begin sewing or trying something new.  I have to confess that documenting my adventures and misadventures about anything makes me nervous. Like many out there, I am was a perfectionist. This unfortunately turned me into a worrywart.  If everything wasn’t exactly how I envisioned it, I would morph into Chicken Little (“The sky is falling. The sky is falling.”) Then one day the “sky” almost fell.  In the beginning of 2013, I had a biopsy to remove a tumor. Everything turned out fine, thank God, but going through that experience made me realize that I am not in control. I also learned that whatever I desire to do, especially if it’s something that will challenge me for the better, I will not talk myself out of it. Hence, my sewing blog Sew New at This. 

Sew New at This, will chronicle my fun and frustrations as beginner sewer.  I’ll also comment and give reviews on the sewing products I’m using and will always welcome your recommendations.

 Thank you for stopping by and in my best Minnie Pearl imitation, “Y’all come back now, ya hear?”

Be Happy,
