Follow Me On
- Yesterday I did a Subtraction Cutting class with Julian Roberts @subtractioncutting He's developed many truly innovative methods of cutting garments over the years and is incredibly generous with his knowledge. If he offers more classes I 100% recommend you sign up. He's a a very inspirational teacher and designer and will constantly challenge you to look at things differently. Thank you Julian for turning my dusty brain inside out and back to front!!***UPDATE - BOTH MACHINES ARE NOW SOLD***I recently bought this gorgeous little sketchbook from @beyond_measure_uk it's the perfect size to put in my pocket and take on walks. I love that it has lots of different papers in too. Looking forward to taking it on some adventures!! 🥾✏🖌🖍Good post day yesterday!! Really looking forward to getting stuck into this @orsoladecastro Congratulations on a timely book that looks to be packed with facts and inspiration ✂️

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 )
