Happy New Sewing Year

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the New Sewing Year as much as I am.

I began the year with a trip to Paris to visit the amazing Christian Dior exhibition before it finished.  It was fantastic, so much to see - designs, toilles, garments and the work of Dior, the six artistic directors who followed him as well as designers who have been inspired by his work - here are just a few pictures, there are more on my facebook page (follow the link below)

      

While in Paris I also got to visit the Yves Saint Lauraint Museum and the Fortuny exhibition and have come back full of inspiration for the new year.

    

Workshops are starting this week and there are still a few places available.  On Wednesday there is Peg Loom Weaving with the lovely Sue Cotten and on Sunday you can learn to make a Perfect Fitting Skirt.  Next week you can create a Shirt or Shirt Dress - lots of techniques to learn in the two days, then Sue is teaching how to make a Coiled Pot with fabric covered cord.  Later in the month find out what all those Machine Feet are for and there is a one day workshop where you can make a Wrap Dress using the great pattern from The Maker's Atelier.

          

The four lovely ladies on the Dressmakers Portfolio are halfway through their course and have been creating some wonderful garments.  There is is still space on the Dressmaker's Portfolio Level 3 which starts in April - click on the image for more information
