I accept it, I am a fan of sewing “vloggers”, especially if they are “YouTubers”. I can spend hours watching and/or listening to them. A “vlogger” is a person who shares their opinions and facts about their life in video format. When they do so using YouTube, they are known as “YouTubers.” I think I started watching sewing channels in 2014, already a decade ago. It wasn't until a few years later that I started subscribing to the channels and following them weekly. Almost all of these “YouTubers” publish their videos weekly.
These channels are some of my favorite “vlogging” channels. On their channels they chat about sewing and general aspects of their life. They share what they sew, their favorite patterns, fabrics they buy, their plans, sewing tips, their sewing rooms, “sew along” and other details. Most of the channels are English speaking. Although there are many channels in Spanish, these are dedicated to tutorials and do not vlog.

Her husband Rob is also an actor and producer. Together they make you laugh with their jokes. Marcy sews almost all of her clothes and shares what she makes for herself and sometimes what she makes for Rob. She loves dresses and the African fabric known as Ankara. She also shares tips and some tutorials. Given their profession, sometimes they don’t have weekly videos.
