- Invested in a piece of very local art. This is the view from the hill behind us down into the next valley. It's painted by Jackie Prachek a local artist who runs the art group I sometimes go to 💚 #keepingitlocalOne of my current works in progress. 🔷️◼◻I had a lovely few hours @sew_in_the_city today teaching these 5 lovely eager students how to make the Derwent trousers from my book Beginner's Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics. They were all super happy (and a few a bit surprised) that they were going home with comfortable, well-fitting trousers that they wanted to wear. Just some hems and elastic to finish, not bad for 4.5 hrs work! 👏👏👏Obviously my trip to @fabworksmillshop today yielded treasure ❤ top down: #heartofhuddersfield Pumpkin Wine Yorkshire Melton, Evening Mist Marled Melton, Thunderbridge Storm Marled Melton and Cross Hatch Sketch viscose/rayon lining. Their Heart of Huddersfield collection is a beautiful thing to behold. You really can't find that kind of quality wool, woven in Huddersfield at those prices anywhere else. I don't think they'll be around for long.......🍂🍁🍃 A/W sewing plans are go!!

The theme of the current window at MIY Workshop is “Sewing the Seeds”.
It’s on a Spring theme and I asked students to make Suffolk Puffs that could then be used in the window display. They came up trumps and I found myself overflowing with Suffolk puffs!
If you’re in Brighton, pop by and have a closer look – all those brown tags are names of students who made the Suffolk Puffs. I think this window is a perfect representation of the MIY Workshop student community and the newly acquired and developing skills that they’re enjoying putting into practice.
