simplicity blog meet
today i got up very early and went down to london to the simplicity blog meet with the queen of sewing herself…….. may martin!
i was a little early, so found the hummingbird bakery, ready to buy some cakes when the meet up was over.
|pinched this from gabby because I forgot to take pictures with people!|
may did a lovely demonstration and went through lots of different techniques and tips. sometimes because i think it was the sewing bee that really made me start sewing clothes, i feel like sewing is a race all the time. i have to remind myself that it’s a process, not a race!
hearing may talk about making your markings, notches, using tailors tacks (all those things that i skip over all the time…) inspired me to maybe start doing things properly. i might even start making toiles. who knows what magical process has started within me!
i asked her if another series of the sewing bee would be on… AND SHE SAID YES! YAY! i can’t wait i’m so excited. a large part of me has been considering applying for the next series so i’m pretty psyched.
here’s a picture of myself and may. it didn’t turn out great, but hey, it’s the queen of all sewing knowledge and i’m damn well documenting it.
