Transform Old T-shirts with a Free eBook

October 13 , 2010

Northbrook, IL—Throughout the recession, people have repeatedly turned to sewing for both money-saving and escapism. The Craft and Hobby Association announced that sewing and needlecrafts account for 26% of the U.S. craft and hobby industry, with 30 million U.S. homes participating in sewing by 2009. According to Victor Domine, a representative for the Craft & Hobby Association, “every sector of the needle and sewing craft categories grew by 2% to 5%” in 2009.

Since sewing can be pricey at times, recessionistas and penny-pinchers alike are seeking alternatives to high priced commercial fabrics, which often leads them to their own closets. T-shirt upcycling and refashioning is an increasingly popular trend in the sewing community because of the ubiquity and wide availability of t-shirts, as well as their versatility in sewing projects. The new sewing website, AllFreeSewing.com, offers ideas to transform old t-shirts with a free sewing eBook. The 9 Ways to Transform Old T-Shirts eBook is free to download at AllFreeSewing.com.
