“True Up” means to make something square or straight, and as a sewing term it means squaring up your piece of fabric, making it true to grain. The term for me also evoked taking a large piece of fabric and chunking it into smaller pieces, which I thought is a nice metaphor for blogging.
True Up will have fabric news, instruction, inspiration, sale alerts, new fabric announcements, advice, interviews, opinion, guest appearances, and much more. There won’t be all that much about actually using fabric — no sewing or crafting projects per se — unless the project or technique helps us think about fabric in a new way. I want this space to be primarily about fabric for fabric’s sake, and I hope to reach and inspire fabric fans who practice a diverse array of crafts and trades.
