Re: Book Giveaway: John Gillow Textiles Titles

I just wrote a post about buying fabric in Turkey and Thailand in the 1990s - it showed as user [long number] but I meant to post as lyndle.

Re: Book Giveaway: John Gillow Textiles Titles

I haven't travelled overseas for years although I hope to get some in South America on a coming-up trip.But when I travel within New Zealand I always keep my eyes open for fabric in local stores and in thrift shops. When I had to commute every second week for a while and couldn't sew while away, I compensated by buying fabric instead. I did buy some textiles in Turkey and in Thailand when I travelled in the 1990s - silk in Thailand and woven scarves in Turkey.

I actually enjoy basting, but that's not really a detail. I quite like hand-finishing seam allowances.
