Yes I’m back after a good 2 week break up in Cumbria, it was a wonderful Christmas apart from an unwelcome chest infection.
I hope everyone had a restful and joyful time.
Well what shall I kick off 2011 with? I have to say I am absolutely loving ‘The Long thread’ its a brilliant crafty blog written by Ellen Baker and deserves high praise indeed. I was thrilled to see a top 100 tutorials of 2010 on there, so definatly check it out and get inspired to make, do and mend in 20111
Also dont forget that I am running a sewing class on February the 12th, there are only 4 places left and tuition is the bargain price of £20, this is an intro price. Tuition will rise to £40.00 for a day after this, so its a real bargain. Most sewing classes charge around £60 -£85 for a days workshop! I have decided to keep cost down so I can share my love of sewing, I will probably break even, I hope.
Just to let you know the class is still going ahead for the 12th February at the Friendship Centre on Elm Grove, here is a short itinerary of the day:
10.30 arrive and introductions/cup of tea
11.00 choosing fabrics and sketch designs
11.45 pattern cutting and prep assembly
12.30 – 1.00pm Lunch break
1.00 – 2.00pm Getting round the sewing machine and technique
2.00 – 3.00pm Finishing touches
I have a supply of fabric I will be bringing though it may not be to everyones tastes! Remember you will be making a bag that will loved and cherished so you may want to purchase your own fabric to bring with you (I will still have fabric for lining your bag/pockets handles etc, I will also have a healthy supply of buttons,ribbons and trims).
