Sewing apps

Something slightly different this week with a guest post all about apps you can use for sewing. I admit I didn't know there was much out there for this so pleasantly surprised to see what Isaac has for us! *spoiler...I'm an avid user of number 5*

Lunch on the Orient Express

Have you ever wondered what it is like on the Orient Express? Why people make a fuss about it? or have you considered booking but wanted to know a bit more detail before committing? I tried looking for detailed information before I booked for a lunch experience, and couldn't find what I needed. Hopefully if you are in the same position this might be of use to you (niche market I know, but someone has to put it out there!)
This is definitely one that should be added to the bucket list..........

By Hand London Rumana Coat - knee length version

By Hand London Rumana Coat - knee length version

Ever since Elisalex started releasing sneak peeks of the Rumana coat on Instagram, I've been one of the many seamstresses looking forward to its release. Luckily, it's on the #sewmystyle2018 schedule so everyone signed up to the newsletter could get their hands on a great discount for the pattern. This is not a quick and easy project by any means, but is one of my most satisfying by far.

The Beginner's Guide to Sewing Your First Coat

The Beginner's Guide to Sewing Your First Coat

Making a coat is one of those sewing milestones that gives you a great deal of accomplishment. It is certainly a more involved project, and can seem advanced in some ways, but can totally be taken on. If you've always wanted to give it a go but are a bit scared, don't be. It will take more time, and there could well be a whole heap of unfamiliar terms and items, but that's all part of learning. Once you've made one, you'll be planning your next.

Offers for the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia London

Thank goodness for the Knitting and Stitching show! I've been holding to my New Year resewlution and working through my stash, and I reckon I'm just about ready to go and restock! What I also love about these events is that there's lots to explore beyond the retail therapy - there's a huge list of workshops to learn new skills in too. Tickets do sell out fast, so I'm posting this exclusive discount code now, while there are still spaces left! Read more for details....
