Back in June last year I organised a meet up in Harrogate. It came about after I called in to Fine Fabrics of Harrogate and was chatting to Sandra about the possibility of and she kindly offered her place as place for us to meet, and there was the mention of cake. So it was a no brainer. Fabric + Cake + Lovely sewing...Comments 4
Yup, 2019. No, it’s not a typo! Last year I organised 3 meet ups – 2 in Dewsbury and 1 in Harrogate. I also attended Sew Up North in Leeds. But I didn’t blog and show you all the pics of the amazing times we had. Sorry! But with another little mini meet up this Monday I thought I’d post over the next 3...
Yesterday was our monthly Crafternoon Tee at the golf club. The Crafternoon Tea (or Tee as it’s a play with words – golf tee!) came about as there’s quite a few of the ladies at the golf club who have gotten back into sewing after catching the bug. There’s also a few who knit and crochet. And there’s ladies who I know who don’t...
2018 – Sunday Seven Style
Happy New Year!!! Hope you’re feeling well rested and your seams aren’t bursting after the festive period! Let’s hope I can remember how to do this! The format of how I’m doing this has changed but hopefully I’ll have a blog post by the end of the day! To say it’s been a while is an understatement. I only managed 2 blogs posts in...
#SEWDOWNDEWSBURY 28th July 2018
Hello!! Here’s just a quickie to let you know about the next Dewsbury Meet Up. I posted on Instagram a while ago but thought I’d best just add it here too as I know not everyone’s on there. Apologies if you’re only just finding out and it’s too short notice for you to attend😢. So we’re meeting from 9:30 at Weatherspoons. I’ve called in...
#GBSBLIVE 2017 & The Japanese Asymmetrical Top
The Great British Sewing Bee Live was fabulous and just what the doctor ordered! I’ve been AWOL for the past few weeks, I won’t go into detail but I’m doing ok and hopefully there will be some action on the blog and in the sewing room very soon, and I’ll be back firing on all cylinders. I don’t know about you but the best...
It’s a good job Natalie’s Sunday Sevens are free and easy with no hard and fast rules, cos I’d have broken them all by now. I’m thinking for now I’ll post my Sunday Sevens fortnightly rather than weekly, so here’s my last 2 weeks….. As usual I usually have something with me to do at work. My main distraction is still this blanket...
What a day!! Even bigger, and dare I say it better than last year! Sally and Becca really pulled out all the stops and were super organised! It included a pattern and fabric swap, a huge gathering at Costa, lots of shopping and chances to mingle, and a raffle of amazing prizes at the end of the day which raised over £750 for the...
Time to share my pattern and fabric additions from February! This is a new thing for me. I often add the odd photo to my Sunday Sevens but then I forget where I bought or acquired fabric and patterns so hopefully by writing a monthly post of my acquisitions it’ll help me and might be of interest to you too! Simplicity 1361 For starters the...
#SundaySevens 91 Featuring The Bronte Country
This week has all been about #sewdownsbury. But I have managed a couple of other things. Mainly work and healthy eating. I had to drag myself away from my sewing machine for my 10am start on Monday. Working shifts I don’t normally get Monday morning blues on a Monday but I did last week. I wanted to stay home and finish my moneta! Instead...
