Sewing picks up with 'Project Runway,' economy

Today, sewing is "the latest lost art, or grandmother's art, that's being revived," says "Sew Retro" author Ketteler.

She's seeing an uptick in registration for classes from " 'Project Runway' and the economic fallout, two different types of students: people who want to cut costs and do things for themselves, and people who want to make something fabulous."
