- For various reasons I've been a bit rubbish at keeping up with the blistering pace of the @minervacrafts blog tour for my book Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics. Here are the beauties I missed: a perfect stripey Peak T-Shirt by @athinakakou / gorgeous blue Kinder Cardigan by @amyishooked / and a sequined, yes sequined Kinder Cardigan by @anna_jo_sews Go check them all out on the Minerva blog! 🤗Here are some better pics of my latest @marillawalker #robertscollection jumpsuit. This will be getting lots of wear 🖤Another one from the weekend - Peak T-Shirt from Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics as a sweatshirt in lovely washed out tie-dye effect lightweight loopback sweatshirt from @fabworksmillshop Can't decide if this one looks spring-like or cloud-like. Maybe both. ☁️🌱🌼I took a lot of pics of recent makes at the weekend. My phone automatically made this which amused me 🤣 #notmodelmaterial

I ran this workshop for the first time yesterday and here’s the brilliant results!
Despite having a choice of 2 skirts, a dress and a top to make, everyone plumped for the frock! Maybe it was the sunshine and holiday anticipation.
So many of the clothes we wear today are made from knitted jersey fabrics that it’s not surprising so many of my students want to use this fabric. However, as my 4 students yesterday found out it presents a few challenges, but that’s why a whole day devoted to it was a good idea!
No doubt I’ll be running this workshop again in the future, maybe with some long sleeved, more autumnal styles on offer…
Here’s what some of yesterday’s students thought of the workshop:
“Great time all round, fab project.”
“Excellent day and company. Learned loads.”
What did you enjoy most about the day?
“Getting to go home with a new item of clothing, feeling industrious.”
Thanks to my 4 lovely students for making it an enjoyable day for me too!
