Can I have a big cheer? Sewing Translated is finally here

Why did I wrote Sewing Translated?
You all know that I love sewing and that I love teaching!
Since I started sewing, it has become an international affair, with a dynamic and encouraging global sewing community – connecting with each other both on and offline. Talking to other sewing fanatics, I started noticing that a particular type of question kept cropping up: how do you say stretch lace in Dutch? What's the French for iron-on-interfacing? Having looked around unsuccessfully for a resource that would help figure out these sewing translation conundrums – and with Google translate not being much help when it comes to stitching terms – I decided it was time to bite the bullet and make one myself!
It's the teacher in me, I can't help myself!
