Sewing Update

I am back from teaching at Olympia and enjoying running lots of lovely workshops in Midhurst.

A bit of a catch up since I last wrote - we had a lovely Open Day when Frances Tobin of The Maker's Atelier gave an inspiring talk about how she started her brand.   We then had a chance to look at (and try on) lots of samples from The Maker's Atelier book, The Essential Collection - here are a few pictures from the day, click on the picture to find out about The Maker's Atelier workshops that I will be running.


The Knitting & Stitching Show was great fun, I ran lots of workshops and met lots of lovely people.  It was really nice to see so many familiar faces and thank you to everyone who came along to be an Angel, your help was greatly appreciated and I hope you enjoyed the show as much as I did.  I didn't have time to do any shopping but did come away with lots of inspiration for new workshops - look out for these fab patterns


Congratulations to Sue Cotten who many of you know from Midhurst - Sue had to stand in for a tutor who couldn't make it to Olympia and had to learn a whole new skill to teach a full workshop.  As well as this Sue did a demonstration to 30 people in the Creative Theatre for the first time!

I am now getting ready to teach at a lovely sewing retreat in a couple of weeks then I will be off to The Knitting and Stitching Show in Edinburgh - you can find out about where I will be teaching on the Out and About page, including details of The Great British Sewing Bee Live - click below for more details.


There are lots of workshops coming up at The Midhurst Sewing Room this month, this week you can make a Pencil Skirt & Top from The Maker's Atelier Book, on Saturday Sue will be running her popular workshop on how to make Fabric Covered Coiled Pots. You can also add to your Sample Portfolio with Tailoring Techniques which includes bound buttonholes and pattern matching.


Next week is the Seam Detail Dress and there is a day for Beginners where you can gain confidence with your sewing machine and make a Simple Kimono Jacket.  Jenni will be teaching a workshop on how to make Beautiful Fabric Flowers on the 29th March, learn to work with different fabrics, bonding and manipulating to create corsages, broaches or head pieces.
