Sewing.org – HSA – Home Sewing Association
HSA is the USA’s Home Sewing Association, an NPO trade organization for teachers and enthusiasts, individuals and companies in the home sewing industry. In this site, the HSA’s target audience, both pros and amateurs, will find lots of useful resources, like free projects and patterns for all levels of expertise.
Most of the resources are available in text-only format with step-by-step information on how to get your project done. More sophisticated or complex items get pdf downloads with image tutorials. Garment designers and students will probably be thrilled to find about the ‘fashion sewing’ area, where they’ll find lots of projects and patterns covering many tastes and likes. The site also includes a section on recycling old garments into new outfits, and home décor resources as well. If you feel you won’t be able to cope with these projects on your own, try to find a sewing educator close to your home by typing in your zipcode.
