This page is a work in progress

This page is my beginning to compile the useful resources I have come across in a few years of research.  It is a collection of useful tutorials, good sources for materials, and anything else I have found useful.  I will also begin making videos of techniques and tricks that I couldn’t find on the internet and had to work at a softwoods company to acquire along with some videos of me sewing.  For now it is just a list of places to buy materials, but the rest will follow as I have time.
