clapham park festival

Today I will be promoting my sewin workshops at clapham park festival. It promises to be a glorious day and i am looking forward to meeting people and spreading the word.. sewin will take place at Brixton Skill Share in Granville Arcade in Brixton market on Thursdays and for openers it will be machine sewing basics, gaining confidence and knowledge of the machine. All classes centre around using recycled fabrics and the cloth we have to hand. It will be interesting to see the variety of samples made and how people meet the  technical challenges. My job is to help, support and encourage would be sewers at the beginning of their sewing journey!

I’ve been busy organising fliers,business cards and running a thursday evening drop in, that I have not made time to continue de cluttering the studio.

This is still on the agenda, especially as my creative work can only be re started when the fabric stash is easily available! presently it is in bags and boxes.

I read these interesting posts,  slow cloth on facebook and at spirit cloth,  regarding cloth clutter and organising/displaying fabric. As i progress with my thinking (and action!) on this I will post images, the great before (the mountain of cloth) and the fantastic after (everything transformed into art)!!!! Watch this space…. the new blog title
