just to say hello to everyone.I have been reading the posts about “Brooke De Lorne” with a lot of interest.I cannot wait for my copy of “threads” to arrive in the post tomorrow.I live the the “UK” sew(excuse pun)we are a bit behind in receiving our copies of “threads”.Its sounds as if she really has opened up a real can of worms in sewing skills & design techniques department.rain to-day,ah well we had our summer last week.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Being an ex-Pom myself, I smiled at your comment of summer was last week!  In Sydney we've had loads of rain, flooding even,  but today the sun is shining and it's a mild 24C, in the middle of winter - look this would be a heatwave in the UK!

    I'm a bit of a sewer, knit and love stumpwork embroidery if I can be of help.  Jeanette

    Hello, Have you gone to the home page and looked at Brook's slide show?  There are some outfits there which aren't in the article so you'll two shows.  This is from New England and I don't think we've had our summer yet.       rjf

        Well, I really agree with a lot of the comments about this 'sewer's' articles, I wouldn't be seen dead in them, they look less wearable than my very worst sewing mistakes that went staight in the bin.  I really cannot imagine what the editors were thinking, by publishing this article and posting more on the website if Threads aims for excellence in sewing.

          goodmorning.just a comment re:those ??designs etc.,I just feel who is the fool here.All those sewing teachers/who were taught themselves to teach sewing.All the years that I & many others have spent sewing trying to get things just right & to look as if they were ok to wear.I have always sewn without trying to read something into the finished article.I have no worries about experimenting with outlandish ideas.We have just celebrated our "Queens" 50 yrs.All she needed to have worn was lol(sorry your majesty)cut newspapers pinned together.lol who needed that wonderful gown.June
