Ages ago i spotted this on the Janome UK website. I think it was February time.
It’s less than an hours drive so I thought it’d be daft not to book onto one. I’ve never had a sewing lesson in my life, so I thought if I’m going to have one I may as well do it in style!
I chose the successful sewing with silk class by Heather Jacks – last years GBSB winner. It was the class I thought I’d benefit most from. I would love to meet Tilly, but I’ve already made several Cocos.
It seems to have come round really quickly! Can’t wait – will hopefully take some photos so I can share what we got up to!
I know, can’t wait! 😀
Oh, how exciting!!! Know you’re gonna love it and have a great time.
Puh-lease do remember to take photos for us!
I will, and I’ll see if I can get a selfie with heather! She might even want to join the Spoolettes! 😀
Thanks Hila! I’m sure I will 😀
Looks brilliant and SUCH good value! I love the comment on Heather’s blurb – “had tremendous sewing instruction at school before it was removed from he curriculum in its pure form.” Have fun!
I know, I’m so excited! I’ll be like a kid the night before and won’t be able to sleep! 😀
I’m so envious – I do love a workshop.
I think you’ve chosen a really good one there as silk is notoriously difficult to work with and I’m sure you could easily manage all the others (although I wouldn’t mind doing the ‘active wear’ one). What are you hoping to make when you have your silky new skills?
I’ve never done any sewing lessons or works shops so it’s all new to me! I have a length of silk I bought about a year ago, think there’s 3m, and I’ve not dared cut into it. Hopefully I will after this but no idea what I’ll be making, except I’ll like a silk Archer shirt. 😀
Ooh this sounds like fun! Don’t worry about not meeting Tilly because I heard she’s not as nice as she seems!!
Think I might need some nytol or wine the night before I’ll be too excited to sleep! 😀
Oh how exciting! I’m really jealous. Have a fab time!
I’m sure I will, thanks Corrine 😀
Oh, what fun! Can’t wait to hear about it and see what you learn! Have fun!
I’ll be letting you all know what I’ve been up to and sharing my new knowledge! 😀
How fun is that! Take pics and can’t wait to hear about your adventures 🙂
I will, all my sewing buddies will be the first to know all about it! And it’s nearly the end of June, which is the time I set to do my skirt sloper – I’ve lost 6 lbs so can’t wait to get going with it. You never know, I might even end up making a silk skirt! 😀
I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks Jenny, I’m sure hoping so! 😀
I’m sure you will have a great time. Take plenty of notes and photos. See you Wednesday X
I will!! Jeannie can make Weds, and Hazel might come too! 😀
Yep, I think that is the class I would have gone for also. Sounds awesome. I hope you’ll have a fantastic time and I can’t wait to read about your adventure ☺️.
This sounds great, enjoy & tell us all about it!
