Update

Hello. My name is Pam.  Welcome to theDIYeffect.com, previously known as RetroSewing.net.  Thank you for  visiting.  We're updating the design and content, so  things are changing, but it will be worth it when done. 

Much has happened since I started this website in 2009.  A big move to the country, lots of remodeling, gardening, experimenting with recipes, party planning and parties are just some of the activities keeping our family busy.  Living in the country is full of new, exciting things to do and discover.  I love the fresh air, wild life, and beautiful country views, not to mention new experiences,  like watching my husband learn to drive a tractor. 

Our life is full of DIY's, and that's how theDIYeffect.com was born.  Retrosewing will always be a part of theDiyeffect.com, and retro sewing projects will continue, but this change of name (RetroSewing to theDIYeffect.com) will accommodate all our DIY activities, including "Home Improvements",  "Recipes", "Gluten-Free Recipes",  "Growing a Square Foot Garden", "Party Planning Ideas",  and of course "Sewing".  I'll soon be posting the adorable "1950's Playsuit" with romper and skirt,  as well as many other DIY's. Hope you'll join us.

For more info about this site, and all the people behind it, check out the "about us" page.

Enjoy!
