SewAndQuiltQueen.com has recently launched a new series of pages discussing various sewing and crafting projects. Sewing is an ancient pastime, and one that for many people has been largely eliminated as a necessity. However many people still enjoy it as a hobby. Sewing can also be a great way to obtain clothing for people who are hard to fit, but do not want to pay exorbitant prices for special sizes. One of the new articles discusses the history of knitting. Although usually considered a feminine pastime, knitting actually has been something done by men until relatively recently. The article details knitting’s expansion from its origins in the middle east to Scotland to homes across America. Another article talks about the history of the sewing machine. The details it provides include the story of men like Thomas Saint and Isaac Singer, as well as women such as Helen Augusa Blanchard and her contributions to the invention that culminated in the modern sewing machine. A final article features a pattern for making sock monkey puppets. While seemingly a simple design, sock monkey puppets have enough details to warrant a dedicated page of instructions, which SewAndQuiltQueen provides.
SewAndQuiltQueen.com was launched in June of 2008, and continues to provide relevant, interesting information about sewing, beading, knitting and other creative skills. Typical offerings on the site include entertaining histories of different clothing creating methods or inventions, instructions on how to create a specific project, or articles discussing the general principles behind sewing and quilting. The site is designed and maintained by WebsiteBusiness.com.
