I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

Vintage pattern give away

I am in the process of clearing out, cleaning up, my sewing room. It should take me several years. Rather than throw things out (if I was good at that I wouldn't be where I am now) I would like to send them off to a good home when, every once in a while, I come across something that I think might be of actual value to someone.

So I am starting here with three vintage patterns, size 16, 36 bust (one I believe is a half size and a 16 1/2 which would mean a shorter back waist length and deeper dart).

I will send one pattern each off to the first three sewers who email me. Please list the patterns in order of preference.

And because I am so nosy I wonder if you could also list your current favourite pattern and why you like it in that email. I think we would all find that pretty interesting.

See how this goes. Just send me an email with your address ( click on email on my profile).

I will close this by Friday night at 12.00 p.m

Sorry about that, not to worry, I am going to keep putting up patterns for a while.
