Hi, I’m Natalie, the person behind this blog.

About Blog

I always thought one day I should start a sewing blog. It stayed an idea until one day I thought why not now? I, of course, had a list of reasons why I shouldn’t be a sewing blogger. But when I looked at why I should start blogging today I realise I would probably never have as much free time again. So I started my blog naterjane which officially launched on June 9, 2016.

Who Is This Blog For

This blog is for anyone who loves sewing. Who likes to challenge themselves and want to learn more about everything related to sewing. It’s for those who aren’t sure if they can be considered a sewer as they are just starting out. It’s for those that taught themselves to sew.Those who are willing to try things outside of their comfort zone.
