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

I enjoy reading your blog (and look forward to it) as much as I enjoy sewing. Your writing style is entertaining as you impart sewing knowledge. Watching today's video clip was a hit for me !

I was in Paris last summer with my granddaughters and one of things we noticed was everyone was wearing flats, no sandals, no flip-flops, just flat ballet slipper type shoes.
