And ……. because magazines have many months of lead time before publication and so you don’t spoil the surprise it all has to be Secret Sewing! So, no sharing!
And no sewing for my winter wardrobe as yet. Boo hoo – I have garments just waiting to burst from my mind to the fabric!
I have also been preparing for two great events I will be participating in :
1. The grand opening of a new fabric store and crafting community in my home town of Ballarat, Victoria. Named Cotton Factory it officially opens its doors this friday (14th March). Later in the year I will be teaching sewing and pattern drafting here – very exciting. They are also stocking my quilt and bag patterns and the samples adorn the walls! Makes me very important. Lol!
2. This saturday (15 March) I am attending a ‘teachers demonstration’ event at a store in Melbourne. All those who teach there, which includes yours truly, will be on hand to demonstrate their skills and answer questions about their area of expertise – garment sewing and pattern drafting for me. I will also be demonstrating the Pattern Drafter Ruler. Others will be talking knitting, crocheting, tapestry and general sewing.
The details are as follows: Venue: Morris & Sons
Level 1, 234 Collins Street
(btwn Elizabeth and Swanston Strs)
Time: 10am – 4pm
It would be lovely to say hi should you decide to pop in to have a look.
So, all in all my sewing machine is burning through thread, the printer is slurping down ink and my brain is tearing through cells!!
Until next time, happy sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting and crafting ….
