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

Tech glich, OK operator glich, and apologies to commentors

I have been having a few issues with my iPhone recently. A sticky screen owing to being dropped out of a pocket and onto the pavement one too many times.

As a result I sometimes tap it a bit too vigorously.

I did that this morning and by mistake deleted rather than published three fabulous comments. I felt terrible about that.

If those folks have the energy to re-comment, much appreciated. If not, my apologies. I did read your great comments but my readers didn't have the chance.

Quick reply to textile grandma. Of course you or any one can repost this post. I think it's an important subject and one that has generated, here at least, an terrific discussion.

The pockets on women's clothing are more shallow than on men's, particularly jeans an trousers. I've complained but...

Oh my I was not one of those you deleted but I know exactly what you are going through. My phone has been dropped once too often and is now working mostly instead of always.

IIfind that when seeing my own, the pockets can be smaller than I like. Before I cut out a pocket, I lay my cell phone over the pattern piece. If I need a larger pocket, I will retrace so that the pocket accommodates my phone.
