Wow! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been doing this blogging thing together for 6 years now. From my very first tutorial to 5 fun seasons of Refashion Runway to publishing The Refashion Handbook to creating videos that have received millions of views. It’s been quite the adventure and I want to thank you for being by my side for it all.
I’m soon going to have more time to improve The Renegade Seamstress and since you are the reason I do what I do, I naturally want to know what you think would make this a better site.
If you take the survey before Saturday, August 25, your name will be entered into a drawing for a free copy of my book, The Refashion Handbook.
Be sure to click the VOTE button after each question so your response will be recorded.
What topics related to sewing do you feel are most needed in the marketplace right now? Is there anything you don’t see covered enough? Anything missing altogether? Do you have any suggestions on how I can improve my site? By answering these questions in the form below, your name will automatically be entered in the drawing for a free copy of my book, The Refashion Handbook.
Thank you so much for taking the time to help me create a better website by answering these questions.
I’d love to win a copy of your book!
Thank you Renee!
Sorry, but I didn’t see a “form below” on your email. Also, each poll question was listed as a separate entity in a column the way it came up on my computer, so it was tricky to navigate… not sure if it shows up like that at your end. Thanks… Susie
Hi Susann, thank you for your comment. I wonder if it would come through better if viewed as html? I probably should’ve used something like Survey Monkey instead of the poll provided with WordPress. Next time….
I would like to reiterate the comments listed above….no “form” and separate questions to answer and navigate.
Hi Jenny, thank you for your comment. I wonder if it would come through better if viewed as html? I probably should’ve used something like Survey Monkey instead of the poll provided with WordPress. Next time….
I wasn’t able to submit after taking the survey and filling in my information. It simply did nothing. Help! Was I correct to list the website as “therenegadeseamstress.com”?
Hi Judy, I did receive your survey. Were you able to click on the “vote” button after answering each question?
Judy, I had the same issues with a number of different links to the questions. I voted on each one separately. Also, there was no form at the end of the email (I use Yahoo, if that makes a difference). I don’t read a ton of sewing blogs because I’ve been sewing for 50 years. It is fun, though, to see your creativity in doing refashions from second-hand garments. I also read a blog or two that show projects in process and when finished. I don’t have a lot of time to sew, but am trying to do more now that I’m retired.
Thank you so much for your feedback Josie. Did you click on the link in the email to go to the site? If not, I wonder if the form might’ve been available that way. Just a thought…
No problem here voting for each question! I read a lot of sewing and quilting blogs and am always learning something new. Lately, I’ve gained back my interest in sewing clothing for myself (especially since losing weight), so garments and patterns are catching my eye!
Thank you Kathy! It’s always so fun to sew for yourself when you’re feeling good. 🙂 Happy Sewing!
I love to see your projects. They are fun and easy to do! Thanks.
Thank YOU Margie!
For me the hardest part is getting started. I bought a beautiful Viking machine years ago and the darn thing intimates me! I miss the old machines that had frontward and a lever to back stitch! I miss the simplicity, and feeling dumber than my machine…?
Yes, getting started is sometimes the hardest part. I actually use a 1970’s Singer Genie that I found at a thrift store a few years ago. I LOVE it! Here’s a link to some pictures of it: https://therenegadeseamstress.com/2015/09/27/i-dream-of-genie-and-how-to-change-a-crew-neck-t-shirt-into-a-v-neck/
I have similar problems with the poll as teh others did before me. I did answer all the questions but never found a form to enter my information.
Thank you for participating in the survey. Did you happen to click on the link to bring you directly to the site? If not, I wonder if the form might show up that way. Just a thought…
I love your blog because of the upcycling. That’s my big sewing passion at the moment because a) I love that it keeps more clothing out of landfill b) it’s usually quick and I’m in a very busy time of life right now, and c) it’s cheap and if I make a mistake I’m not so bothered as I would be with new fabric!
I prefer photo tutorials because I find “rewinding” videos to watch the same bit over and over really annoying.
I’m a beginner and I was a Plus Size and loosing weight, a lot of weight! I’d like to know how to ADD sleeves to sleeveless dresses and blouses.
Congratulations on your weight loss Cecilia! Here’s a link to an old article of mine that shows how to add sleeves to a sleeveless dress. I hope it helps. 🙂 https://therenegadeseamstress.com/2015/11/01/how-to-add-sleeves-to-a-sleeveless-dress/

Will there be another season of Refashion Runway? I have really enjoyed them.
I know that you haved refashioned sweaters but have you ever done anything with knit pieces that look like someone did a sweater front sample that is a large rectangle with ribbing at one end and waste yarn at the other? I’m trying to think of ideas that will put them to their best use.
I’m hoping to host another season of Refashion Runway very soon. 🙂 As far as the knit pieces I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like you’re describing.

Busy homeschool mom here, so both time and money are in short supply! Love the refashions that you do, they are good for my budget, as well as good for the environment. Win win in my book!
Thank you so much Susan! Your comment really brightened my day!

I just need and want to learn to sew for my family and future family when I get married someday, and to teach others.
I am really behind in email and just saw this post. I am sorry I missed the survey for you but CONGRATULATIONS on your book being published!!! ________________________________
