A Note from Helen

I absolutely love sewing and I love sewing lingerie in particular, so when Lynda of ‘Elle-Joans’ asked me if I’d like to take over her online lingerie supplies business then it was a no brainer.

It was perfect timing. I had recently decided to wrap up my 15 year long career in landscape design but quickly found myself getting restless being at home with nothing to do but housework. My skills definitely lie in sewing and not sweeping! I was needing a new way to engage my brain and creative flair.

I remember when I first became interested in sewing my own lingerie and how bewildering it all seemed to be. I sketched up a large image of abra and with every blog or book I read I added more and more notes and question marks to it….powernet / powermesh??? Frame / cradle??? Tricot??? What was all this new terminology and fabric?

About Joan Mantini

After several years of being the Facebook page owner at Beginner Sewing, I noticed there was a desperate need to have a single go-to spot for members to be able to find answers to their common questions, get some useful tips & tricks, as well as find reputable places to purchase sewing products online. Taking my role as a trade publication editor by day, and combining it with my knowledge of frequently requested beginner sewing advice, I created www.beginner-sewing.com. An outlet that gives new sewists a free digital magazine geared for entry level sewing as an extra bonus!
