My name is Jill and I reside in Colorado. I run the Denver Sewing Collective which is a awesome group of people who love sewing and promoting the art of sewing.
The blog title is inspired by Joan Didon’s A Year of Magical Thinking. I think there is a magical effect when we think about the things we love, that inspire us, that can safely remove us from this insane world even if for the length of time it takes to read or visit a blog.
This blog has taken on many guises; I think I’ve changed the theme alone about 72 times or so. It is not strictly a sewing blog. I’m happy to say I rarely use the word ‘Sew’ in a homophonic way (sounds naughty doesn’t it). I rarely have tutorials because so many bloggers out there do it soooo much better. But, if I do find a tip or technique I will gladly share. I like to post my latest creation and I enjoy writing book reviews on fashion, sewing, vintage, movies, costumes and whatever strikes my fancy.
I post on fashion but not in a “Look what I’m Wearing Today”. I try to give a little historical perspective. I post on vintage fashion as well as current. I love old Hollywood and take frequent trips there via movies.
So, enough about me, what’s up with you? Your lovely comments here and elsewhere are truly appreciated and I hope to grow my circle of blogging friends.
