Let the Sewing begin..

It' ll be chilly in March in  Puyallup/Seattle...But Bruce and I are so looking forward to Pacific Fabrics and SewExpo in 4 weeks time!


Look out Seattle....here we come!

Time to make a few warm clothes. 

The Weather can be anything from snowing to around 15C/60F. I can work with that.

Where do I begin? 

Choose the shoes first.. Leave the sandals at home

Next select Fabric

Thermal under dress

Layer upon layer, upon layer

Need a long sleeve base dress 

I'll be presenting! So I need clothes that can be seen beyond the front row. That means colour and drama!


I'll be bringing some exciting new sewing creations to Seattle for my Workshops!

I'll be sharing with you how to see with new eyes....to create a new chemistry between you and your sewing machine. Creating clothes you love to wear. 

Now for the Fabric quest! 

Prospecting for gold!! I know there's gold at the end of the Fabric rainbow in my Land of Oz! I'm on the Yellow Brick Road to Seattle bringing these creations with a view to helping those who want to:

  • Think in a new way about their sewing
  • Who want to gain Courage Sewing with different patterns and colours
  • To sew with a new Heart and passion.
