We didn't video the class (nor me in a saddle).... more of that later.
I have a busy few weeks ahead, with a Zippers For Bags class next weekend, followed by Grampians Texture and then Large Tote (Bag in a Day) and Purse Frame classes at Addicted To Fabric in Canberra.
Then there's the Purse Frame workshop in my studio on 16th March. We've had 2 cancellations for that day, so if you were hoping for a spot, here's your chance!
Having spotted a spare weekend just before Easter, and a waiting list or two, I thought that perhaps I could squeeze in another class, so we'll now run Beginner's Bag in a Day on 23rd March.
If you're getting an "Active X" warning on the page as you view my website, please know that it's just something to do with the old SSL certificate from the online shop, and I've asked Joe the Super-Hero-Techie to see if he can sort it out for me. It's not the hacker still at work.
Now... the video bit.
Stitch 56 (a major You SEW Girl stockist) are celebrating the launch of their spanking new website with specials and interviews with designers and all manner of good things (including 2 copies of my book at 15% off for the lucky first-ins). You can check out the details here, and follow Stitch 56 on Facebook or Twitter to get next week's deals.
Helene from Stitch 56 popped into the studio last week, to interview me. I thought I would be out of shot when I wasn't talking, and assumed the video would be edited down to the (planned) 4-5 minutes, so I forgot to put on my poised "I'm on tv" best behaviour. Helene liked it that way, so here you have me, being my usual, fidgety, sometimes-mumbling self (what-you-see-is-what-you-get), speaking with geeky excitement about my work... and fidgeting.... and possibly exaggerating the thickness of the booklets of notes in the patterns. (Listen to the words and ignore wild hand gesticulations. I tend to flap about a bit.)
I'll be back soon.... I'm cooking up a blog post about interfacings as we speak.
