About this Blog

Welcome to my blog. My name is Catherine, I'm 60 something  and I live in Oakville, Ontario. I began sewing at an early age. In fact, when I learned to sew, it was considered very cool and creative.

Not being one to follow a trend, I started my sewing business while many were giving up. I refuse to believe there aren't others like me who are on the lookout for quality fashion fabrics and sewing patterns. With over 20 years' experience working in marketing and communication, I suppose I should know better.

I continue to pursue this craft because all the reasons that people have given it up for don't appear to apply to me:  (a) not enough time, (b) it's cheaper to buy than to sew and (c) fitting garments is too difficult.

Earlier posts relate to fashion and sewing. But you will find that lately the posts are my rants (Rick Mercer style) about current events.  This post will give you a lot of insight into my philosophies about my business and life (http://distinctivesewingsupplies.blogspot.com/2010/09/richard-cosmos-wise-rag-dealers.html).

My website blog is totally focused on sewing and you might want to check that out as well.
