About me

My photo
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

What I can tell you about installing windows

When you take the old window out you can break some of the tiles around the window frame. You know the ones you just re-grouted. These have to be replaced, which will be a new skill.

In this morning's paper there was a flyer from the community college - Home Maintenance. Guess who's signed up? In no other area of my life do I rely on someone else to do it, so why here and with this? My sewing is largely self-taught and I never gave up on that.

I have also finished a dress about which I have much to say, just need someone to take the right pictures.

I'll be back later.

Sounds like a great class to take. When I was single I found myself doing tasks I would have deferred to my husband when I was married...now that we have remarried he's figured out I can do more than I used to let on! :) Can't wait to hear about the new dress!
