Back in the saddle

It felt good to be back in the classroom today (for the Purse Frame workshop). It's been such a long time, I'd almost forgotten how much I enjoy it.
I love how, if you sit six women in a circle with sewing machines, some sort of magic happens. Stories and ideas are shared, common ground found....

Tim Tams are eaten and purses are made.


We all go home feeling a little warmer and fuzzier (and with one more purse) than when we arrived.


I'll try to squeeze a few more of these pop-up workshops in, whenever I see an open date for one. Do watch this space - blog readers always get the news first!

It is a lovely feeling, and so long since I've felt it too! Sigh, if only the built a bridge across Bass Strait!

Nothing nicer than women sharing over sewing - especially when it involves TimTams!

maybe that's an idea for our little stitch and bitch group. i feel we need a project we can all turn our hand too to revive our group. we've just all been busy working on our own projects. thanks for the inspiration. i'll put it to the girls.
