Best Tutorials in Sewing….The Renegade Seamstress!!!

I woke up this morning to some great news!

I’m so excited, I can hardly stand myself. I can’t stop smiling and there’s nobody awake in my house to jump up and down with me. (I sure hope I don’t trip over my nighty as I walk down the hall and up the stairs to accept my Oscar…er um…I mean my award. πŸ™‚ )


Thanks to all of you who voted, The Renegade Seamstress won the

2013 Craftsy Blogger Award:Β “Best Tutorials in Sewing”.

YAY!!! You guys rock!!!!! I knew I had the best subscribers on the planet. You all make this whole blogging/sewing thing so much fun with all of your encouraging comments and support for what I do.

Thanks for voting and jumping up and down with me!


(And yes, Gaye, we will be celebrating with Sparkling Cider in the staff room today.;))

    Congratulations Beth. You DO have the best tutorials. My “refashions” are taking wool clothing and re-purposing it into quilts and penny rugs, but I WANT to do fashion. I always read through tutorials for dresses, etc and none of them compare to yours. I can follow yours, but best of all yours are ENTERTAINING! Congrats again!!!
