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

Important clarification

I need to make sure you all know I am the step-mother of the bride, not the MOB. 

The bride's mother is a great person and absolutely terrific to me, it's important she gets full credit for raising a wonderful girl with my husband, even long after they divorced. Generosity of spirit is not always evident in this world but it it has been Beth's gift to us all to have made that one of the ground rules in this blended family. We are all pretty lucky.

A lovely family. I'm a step-mom as well, and know that the journey can be made smooth or difficult depending on the nature of the "moms" involved. It looks like it was a lovely evening, congratulations to all of you!
