This blog is all about sewing and vintage. It's about craftsmanship, sewing and tailoring, traditions and couture sewing. It's not about quantity but about quality. It's a lot about dresses. You'll find my vintage finds as well as my sewing creations and my thoughts about all these matters. It's a little bit about Paris and books and a lot about fabrics and my inspirations.

Yes, I am a nerd when it comes to those things. If you are too, I think you'll like it here.

Since March 2015, I'm writing in English. Since July 2014 all posts have a short summary in English. Before that, it's just in Swedish. If you want me to translate a specific post, please let me know. You'll find all that I've sewn the past couple of years on the Creations-page, with links to their original blog posts.

In both 2015 and 2014, the members of BurdaStyle.com voted me amongst the Top 50 Best Bloggers for Sewing Enthusiasts. I've also been featured in the section Reader's Closet in Threads Magazine (February/March 2016 #183).

You'll find me on different sewing and social networks all over the internet: BurdaStyle, Kollabora, Threads, WeSewRetro, The Fold LinePinterest, InstagramBloglovin' and Facebook. I'm also a member of the Swedish blogging network Better Bloggers. But I do love when the conversation takes place right here, at www.stinap.com.

You're so very welcome!

  1. Hi Stina,

    Your sewing is amazing - really inspirational. I'm so pleased you have started to write in English so I can follow what you are sewing. Your hats are incredible - please, please write a post about how you make them!

    1. Thanks Emma! I'm glad you like me writing in English; I'm starting to get into the flow of it (even though I'm sure I still sound home-made :) )

      A post on how to make hats? It's been awhile since I made one, but it's a good idea. We'll see! :)

  2. you're great Emma, Appreciate your blog!
