This week I am doing a program for our ASG Neighborhood group on Sewing and your Computer.

I am putting together a list of sewing web sites.  I have a few that I go to, but I bet you guys know of many I don't.

Open for suggestions - especially those for machine brands.

Karen,

I frequent Stitcher's Guild which covers every aspect of sewing, including sewing machine brands and sew-a-longs. PMB users even have an area there. This can also be found through the Artisan's Square website.

This should be cool, I only know a few places myself. Here's  4 I like.
Sewing.patternreview.com's forum is hands down one of the most friendly and informative sewing forums I've ever come across. Go there almost every day.
Burdastyle.com is pretty cool for inspiration although it's aimed at the younger crowd who seem to take much better pictures than I do. : )
Crafters.org boards have some interesting stuff in the sewing sections now and then too. One of the few places I see anything about sewing toys.
deviantArt.com in the artisan crafts> textiles, costumery, cosplay or toys & dolls catagories. Always inspirational, sometimes educational too.

I like to visit "Thesewingforum" It is a very large UK based site, with people from all over the world on it. Lots of great information and interaction. From people trying to work out how to thread a machine, or make a simple garment for the first time, through to people who make their living designing and sewing Tutus. Wedding gowns, and other very fine sewing.

Just read the bit about machine brands. I have a vintage elna and find the yahoo group 'elnaheirloomsewingmachines' very good. There are others for other machines, or sewing machines in general.

I like to read sewing blogs for entertainment and inspiration. There are lots of sewing tutorials at www.sewingtutorials.blogspot.com and of course Debbie Cook has tutorials at stitchesandseams.blogspot.com. Belinda used to have tutorials but I think she is taking a leave from blogging....
For entertainment and sew alongs try malepatternboldness.blogspot.com. All my favorite blogs have links that dive deep into the sewing world where there are lots more links, tutorials and inspiration. I call it virtual sewing!

www.fashion-incubator.com    An industrial take on home sewing - very useful.  Check out the tutorials especially those in the the reverse engineering category.  Many are not named but they often have very good tips on making garment construction more efficient.

I've been collecting sites for several years and would be happy to provide, but I don't know how to copy my bookmarks under my SEWING/TIPS/BLOGS etc. I use an iMac and don't see a PrnScreen button. Can anyone help?

Just heard about a Bernina site called Bernina Land that came to me with rave reviews. This is part of yahoo groups.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

Most of the ladies don't do much sewing web surfing and were to see so many different sites.
