Hello to all you Sewers out there. I’m from Australia and have been a passionate sewer since the start of high school – some 30 years ago. I still struggle although I continue to learn something new about sewing every year. That’s the joy of loving to sew – there’s is always something else to do/learn/try/fail and triumph at!!!
I am so envious of you guys in the States – you have so much choice of fabrics/trims/patterns and many more opportunities to learn from the masters. I live in Melbourne, and although there’s a population of around 3 million, there’s only one decent fabric store in the city and maybe one or two in the ‘burbs! I truly envy the ads I see in Threads and Vogue magazine for beautiful fabrics and the really hard to get items. One of these days I’ll have to get to the States and go absolutely crazy!!!
Still, if you’re anything like me, you make do with what you’ve got, and use that creative spirit to come up with innovative ideas to make your garments something special.
Hope you all have a good night..morning? Would love to hear from you.
