These days, we have a wealth of technology available to help us learn and perfect our sewing techniques. Several of us brought along and discussed our collection of DVDs.
Karen showed her collection of four DVDs.
Maureen has a library of DVDs, some of which she has viewed and some which are still waiting for a viewing.
Genevieve has various DVDs that she has learned from and others which, on viewing, have reinforced her own good sewing practice.
The internet is the world's largest sewing library and Youtube is a wealth of information. Just go looking!
Show and Tell
Jean showed her gorgeous new top made from mesh ordered through Kerryn Swan via a Stitches offer.
She then modelled another top from the same pattern but made with two sashes of fabric from Bali. She positioned the border print perfectly to provide great visual impact.
Stella's inventive memory stick cases.
Genevieve discussed her journey with a Vogue Claire Shaeffer trousers pattern. She demonstrated the work she did on fitting a toile but has come to the conclusion that it might not be the right pattern for her. It has been a learning journey.
Sandi has been experimenting with fabric flowers for swimsuits.
