You may know Zoe Edwards as author of the popular SoZo What do You Know blog and creator of the annual MeMadeMay sewing extravaganza. MIY Workshop students will also know her as the teacher of my Saturday classes.
When Zoe started teaching at MIY Workshop she asked if she could make the Brightside shrug and write a review of it. Obviously I was more than happy to let her loose on my patterns! Here’s her oh-so-wearable end result:

Read her full review of the pattern here and like me, be super impressed at Zoe’s thriftiness…..
Later this morning I will be heading off to London town to spend 5 days at the Knitting & Stitching show at Alexandra Palace. If you’ve never been it really is an amazing event, my two pieces of essential advice if you’re going…….
- wear: comfy shoes and layers
- take: food!
There are three halls full of stalls selling everything you could ever need and more for sewing knitting and creating in general, exhibitions, workshops and fashion shows.
I’m playing with the big boys this year in the Great Hall with MIY Collection on stand O19. I’ll have my sewing patterns, tools, accessories and an advance copy of my book. Here are some new things I’m launching at the show……
A new sewing pattern for the show: MIY Cosy Cowl – quick, easy and perfect for this time of year when you’re not quite ready for your winter coat! Available to buy online when I’m back from the show.
Teeny tiny scissor earrings! A treat for you or the perfect gift for your stitchy friend. Also available to buy online when I’m back from the show.
Look forward to seeing you there!
