The new NASA-themed space collection from Coach reminded us that Coach bags are freakin’ expensive. On the plus side, we learned that they’re running a summer sale that offers up to 50% off on a whole bunch of bag designs for both men and women.

If you’ve been thinking about getting into cosplay crafting or making your own nerdy fashions, you might want to check out Singer’s new line of tech-friendly, entry-level sewing machines: The SINGER 3333 Fashion Mate, SINGER 3342 Fashion Mate and SINGER 3337 SIMPLE. I’m no expert on these machines personally, but they are compatible with Singer’s Sewing Assistant App, so it seems like you’ll get plenty of digital support and instruction. They also have over 20 built-in stitches, a top drop-in bobbin, a Staybright LED light and a built-in needle threader.

The complete list of features for each model is available in the press release below. I also highly suggest that beginners check out the book The Hero’s Closet: Sewing For Cosplay And Costuming along with patterns from McCall’s, Simplicity and Jo-Ann’s. [click to continue…]
