Christmas bells & Tree

This Thursday Yeoni come for workshop and made these lovely bells and tree

Meanwhile I made sashiko stitching on my machine.

Monday, November 11, 2013


I am having a very bad cold but this was not a burden to start using sewing machine to do sashiko stitching. 

Today I bought heavy duty No 40 thread. On the top photo, I used interfacing and in the bottom fabric used batting. On blue I put stitching on 2.5 but top one was 3.0. 

Bobbin thread was red or blue to make some impact.

Lets start new projects

Lets start working again in September! Clean you sewing rooms and machines, lets start working on new projects. It has been long summer months that I did not do any sewing.

In September I am offering three projects to start below the photos.

On 12 September for patchwork lovers oven gloves to make. It could be heart or butterfly shaped.
Children pyjamas are always handy to make them.  They will love them because mummy made them! Scheduled on 19 September.

On 26 September come and learn how to make this a very useful bag for yourself or for friends. Beginners are very welcome because all projects are not too difficult to make.

New Year's meeting

A Happy New Year!

The first New Year's meeting started today with three people.  Now we do work almost in all directions of sewing techniques: Ann did her spiral quilt and Chang did adjusting her clothes and I mended my coat. 

Of course, I forgetton to take any photos of the meeting, which I did same in November and December meetings. 

Last two months we had some people coming to learn to knit and sew.  I managed to teach them some techniques and give useful tips for future projects.

If you want to learn how to knit or sew please contact us.  This group just does not concentrate on quilting. 

See you in future.
