Let's build up a list of Sewing quotes


I love to see sewing quotes on craft work, so thought it would be community spirited of us to build up a list of quotes for us all to use.
I'm starting you off with this one and 
it would be sew nice if you could add your ideas here 
or on the Rag Rescue facebook page.

With your permission I am build up the list and have created a post on the right hand side bar which you can dip into.

I like "sewing is believing" - I don't know where it comes from.

"I am a sew-made woman." Just saw this one recently, but I don't remember where.
