- Another Friday another @sew_in_the_city mirror selfie 😁📸 this week wearing Fulwood top in gorgeous @faberwood_com ikat (so soft, washes REALLY well) and cropped Derwent trousers from my last book Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics. You can get the Fulwood pattern using the link in my profile, you can get my book from all good bookshops - I don't have any signed copies in stock at the mo.A meadow full of common spotted orchids just 20 mins walk from home 😍I got to be a tourist in my hometown today (more in my stories if you like a bit of industrial heritage). In homage to industry I wore a completely memade outfit: Derwent trousers and Winnats tank from my last book Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics and denim jacket from my new book out in January 😉📚🧵✂️I've been here @sew_in_the_city again today teaching a lovely student the fun she can have with her overlocker and how to do some simple clothing alterations. 👖👕 If you want to do a Friday dressmaking class with me whatever your level, whatever you want to make even if it's just learning how to use a sewing machine, book in now direct with Kerrie @sew_in_the_city ✂️🧵 I'm wearing a handpainted #peaktshirtdress from my last book Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics.

OK, so it’s no secret round here that I’m EW’s number 1 scissor fan (read why here)! I tentatively ran an idea past Nick this summer about making some custom MIY Collection scissors, I didn’t even know if this was something that was possible or that he would ever consider doing, but joy of joys he said yes and here’s the result!!
Ernest Wright’s 8″ dressmaking shears and large bow embroidery scissors with custom white handles and the MIY Collection logo etched on the blade, right beside EW’s own esteemed logo. What a super happy bunny I was when these arrived.
You can buy them now in the MIY Collection shop and in person at MIY Workshop classes. The shears are £40, the small scissors are £25. A snip when you think about the price per use of scissors that are going to last you a lifetime…..
As I’ve started sourcing various bits of equipment and materials for MIY Workshop and been asked by students if I can get various things for them, I decided to put together a price list and sell a limited range of things.
These items are not available through my website, just at the workshop. I won’t be holding masses of stock, so if you would like something let me know and if I don’t have it I can order it in for you.
