Making your own Christmas Presents? How about a Christmas Shrug!

My MIY Collection shrug pattern is proving popular with Christmas present makers this year. Lots of MIY Workshop students have been making them, one student has made five!!  They’re a really quick, easy sew and simple to fit.  You can buy your pattern here.

But, can you beat the current speed shrug sewing record set by one of my students this week?!……

Merry Christmas from Wendy and MIY Workshop


Christmas is almost here and you can sense the panic in the air!

If you’re stuck for last minute stocking fillers for creative “others” I have the last couple of “Fashionary” sketchbooks available at the workshop.

They’re A4 women’s versions and cost £20.  Here’s some pics:fashionary9Lovely Moleskin style cover with embossed “Fashionary”, ribbon page marker, elastic to keep closed and a pocket inside the back cover.

fashionary6……size charts and glossaries for design terminology…….

fashionary5……and then lots of pages with feint croquis (templates of figures on which you can then quickly draw your designs) which disappear under your drawing and won’t show up on a photocopy.

Vital for all budding designers and the perfect bit of kit for anyone embarking on a pattern cutting course!
