What Else?

As well as all the sewing stuff on Tea and a Sewing Machine, there are tutorials for other crafts too. There are some crochet tutorials, also jewellery, wet felting and wreaths. There’s even a whole section devoted to Christmas!

You might also like to delve into the archives of the blog section. All the posts end up here, but some of them don’t fit into any of the another categories. You might find some things to enjoy reading that you won’t find anywhere else on Tea and a Sewing Machine!

If you like my tutorials, you might like to take a look at my Etsy shop. I have a number of patterns and craft kits for sale there, all aimed at being affordable for people on a budget and being added to all the time.
