The more we know about our audience, the better we can tailor our projects, product reviews, and technique tutorials. We have just a few short multiple-choice questions, which should take you about five minutes to complete. We promise there will be no math story problems or trick questions about who exactly is buried in Grant’s tomb. If you include your email at the completion of the survey, you'll be entered in a drawing to win a mystery grab bag of cool fabric cuts direct from the S4H Stash. It's an easy way to let us know what you would be the most interested in seeing right here on Sew4Home.

If you’re a regular visitor to Sew4Home, you’re probably familiar with our Re-imagine & Renovate series. It’s where we show you how new fabric can completely change the look of a design; the same way a fresh coat of paint can transform a room. The theory works just as well with the ten projects in our new Sew4Home Bags and Totes book. We selected one of our favorites: the Kid's Vintage Book Bag, and gave it a floral makeover.
