â€œTrue Upâ€ 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 wonâ€™t be all that much about actually using fabric â€” no sewing or crafting projects per se â€” unless the project or technique helps us think about fabric in a new way. I want this space to be primarily about fabric for fabricâ€™s sake, and I hope to reach and inspire fabric fans who practice a diverse array of crafts and trades.
