The Sew AHolic

I had a request for a detailed photo of the Sew A Holic poster I've got hanging in my sewing nook. I got it from Nancy's Notions; a little blub on the bottom says that it was printed by 'TLC Greetings...a division of the McCall Pattern Company' (I've also got a couple of mugs w/sewing related themes from these folks). I'm doing my best to remember when I got it...it was back when our two oldest DKids shared a room, and I had the smallest bedroom for my sewing space. That would have been before DS2 (that would be DKid 3) came along in 1993; so that poster is pretty old. When I had to move the sewing out of that bedroom, the poster went in a tube and stayed there until we landed here in July of '05.

I need to get it framed or something.

Now, I realize that none of US would look anything like the crazy crafty lady in the poster, but there are some things that ring true...the bandaid on the finger (always! I've got one now, in fact, although it's not sewing-related), the pile of scraps, the next project already selected.... ;)

Oh, it's really not yellow; I had to turn the flash off because the poster paper is reflective enough that I had a big shiny spot over about 1/4 of the poster. But you can at least get the gist of it!


  1. Hmmm. . . .if you identify with four or more things . . .

  2. LOL! Um, ok, the pile of scraps, the next project at the ready, the pins in the mouth, the sewing coffee mug,the bandaid on the finger...I guess I should go find that 12-step program, eh?

  3. Oh...I suppose the most telltale symptom is that the latest purchase and the next pattern/fabric for next pattern are NOT the same thing...

  4. Lisa ~ I had a copy of this poster hanging in my very first "adult" sewing room back when I was married and ex-husband converted some basement space for me...man I loved that sewing room! Probably one of the best things he ever did for me! LOL!

  5. Oh, thanks so much for posting the poster! I think I was the one who originally asked. It's great! I haven't been keeping up with all my sewing blog reading, life has been so busy lately with my kids and my mom fell and broke her hip. This certainly brightened my day. Thank you again for your kindness!
