Hello <<First Name>>
How have you been? Life has been at a steady clip here lately. The anticipation of harvest coming and the smell of freshly cut hay is on the breeze. I've really got to get back in the habit of watering the garden again too.
This month we are opening a sewing can of worms.... Should you pre-wash fabric?
My usual answer is YES but there's a few exceptions to the rule that I'll explain below. I also feel like I should look like a serious jurno standing in front of an angry mob - yup, all the hard hitting topics tackled here :)
In other news --- I've release a new kit, an I-Spy bag. As always, a full set of photographed instructions are included as well as all fabrics, thread, the poly beads and 25 charm to stash inside. Scroll down for photos and more details. I'd love to find out what other projects you'd like as a kit... reply and let me know x
I'm going to bite the proverbial bullet and set a deadline for releasing my online sewing course - 1 March 2016. I've been busy with all sorts of things - writing a PDF guide, planning out the lessons, working out how best to film videos of myself sewing and the tech of building a website to deliver the course to everyone - argh!! The general idea is that we'll all sew the same thing - a giant beach bag - but the steps will be broken down into manageable chunks that highlight the foundation skills of sewing. You'll source your own materials (I'll be giving you an equipment list) and at the end of a few weeks, you'll have a finished bag and butt loads of inspiration to make the next thing. I'll release more information in the coming months and I'll post out a disc if your internet connection isn't up to streaming videos #ifeelyourpain.

Happy Sewing, ♥ Sarah x
