Follow Me On
- Last night I got all dressed up to go to a wedding reception and thought "I must get a photo of this outfit, I really like it". This is as close as I got 😆 I like it as an arty photo but you'll have to use your imagination to picture the complete outfit 🤷♀️ here's what it included: ✔ Fulwood dress (link to pattern in bio) in that gorgeous Pollock style crepe from @fabworksmillshop (my go-to summer frock) ✔ handmade kimono (not by me) ✔ gold handbag by @hollymleatherWearing autumn clothes in August 🙄 I'm excited about the weather forecast that's promising 2 nice weeks after today though!!! 🌞 Wearing that boxy tee that I will eventually release as a pattern one day, promise!! I've been cooking up some sewing plans which involve more of these tees and a hooded parka, I'm focussing on the gaps in my wardrobe as I haven't done any sewing just for me at all this year....what's on your sewing list? #handmadetshirt #diytshirt #tshirtpattern #sewingwithknits #sewingwithknittedfabricsReally enjoyed being the student last night @sew_in_the_city learning some improv patchwork techniques with the always infectiously enthusiastic @pappersaxsten Met a lovely group of makers too. My kinda Friday night out!! ✂️The kind of picture I love to see - @betty_dabbler and @fabricandflour in their finished Peak T-shirts that they started with me on Friday morning @sew_in_the_city Brilliant work you two 👏👏👏 I really love these fabric choices ❤❤

I have to admit that usually nothing less than the best is good enough for me, but this was a national competition open to the many businesses teaching people to sew across the UK, so I’m actually rather chuffed with 3rd.
And, dear reader, this is mostly down to you, as I relied on you first of all to nominate me back in September of last year and then to vote for me, so a big thank you bear hug from me to you.
MIY Workshop seems to be on a bit of a roll this year……
I was (to put it mildly) dead chuffed the other week to find out that I’ve been nominated in Sew Magazine’s British Sewing Awards under the category “Best for Sewing Workshops / Courses”!
The nominations process has been ongoing since September and those receiving the most nominations have now been shortlisted for the voting process. I am soooo flattered that so many people nominated me, a huge thank you from me to all of you that took the time.
Voting is now open via postal votes and online until February 14th next year.
The process is very easy online, here’s a direct link: http://www.sewmag.co.uk/awards/
Or, if you buy the current issue of the magazine there’s a form to complete and send in the post:
Good luck to everyone who has been nominated, especially Ditto Fabrics in Brighton……!
Sew Magazine are currently looking for nominations for the British Sewing Awards via their website and in their magazine.
You can vote for your favourite sewing machine brand, best book and best of all……..Best Sewing Workshop / Course and Best Sewing Blog.
Now I’m not so presumptuous as to assume anyone would nominate me, but……..if you happen to enter, I hope I will be fresh in your mind!
It’s easy to do, this link takes you straight there: http://www.sewmag.co.uk/awards/ just nominate in the categories you want and put N/A in the ones you don’t. Takes only a few mins…….
I’ll send some happy sewing fairies your way )
