Sewing Weekender

Just a quick post as after a couple of tiring days back at work I’m looking forward to a weekend of sewing. To make it extra special, it’s Sewing Weekender time!

The Sewing Weekender is usually a weekend away in Cambridge for 100 sewers, lots of talks, sewing and socialising, it sounds great fun. This year due to Covid, it’s gone on line, so lots of people from all over the world can join in. It’s still not too late to join, there’s lots of talks to watch, a great goodie bag, and you can sit and sew with the camaraderie of a sewing event.

I’m starting a sheer shirt, which as on my list of things to do this year. It a gorgeous fabric which is why it’s been in my stash for ages, it’s one of those too scared to cut into fabrics!

In reality it’s a deeper wine colour, it’s beautiful. I think I bought it on one of my earlier trips to Deswbury.

I’ve chosen a Style Arc pattern called the Artist Tunic, which is a longer length shirt, I chose it as it is actually pictured with a sheer fabric. I’ve not used Style Arc much, instructions seem minimalist to say the least, so it’s fingers crossed time that everything works out…

…wish me luck I’m going in!!!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Yes, good luck! Mr. Tialys ordered a pattern to make a jacket from StyleArc and they do rely on a lot of previous knowledge and experience. You can do it!!

    Great to see & chat with you today at the Weekender! Hope you’re pleased with your cutting out, assuming you got to that today. πŸ˜‰ Had forgotten that so many folks last year said they wound up doing more talking than sewing, but as they were talking about sewing nobody minded. 🀣

    What a fun thing to do this weekend! You’ll be fine with that pattern, you’ve done way harder stuff.πŸ™‚ Did you find work very different? I had my first kids in this week, and it was a big change with all the sanitizing and safety procedures, but I think it will work.
