Back in the Saddle Ready to Educate You…

I am Back in the Saddle Ready to Educate You… My apologies, as it has been a while. Unfortunately, life gave me a reality check – It Bounced!!!

Last year,  in February, when I felt like I was on a roll, life put me in the slow lane overnight for a duration of what ended up being 8 months.

Being the sort of person who likes to be in control of her life, this was more than a reality check that had bounced, it was like starting from scratch in some directions of my life… mainly my short term memory.

As you can imagine, at my age, the jokes started about it being age-related…

If only!

It has been over 18months since my accident and short term memory is still an issue, which I have decided I am going to conquer, as I am never one to let things get on top of me… by choice.

Therefore moving forward, I am back in the saddle, short term memory improving slowly (who knows if it will return permanently), but my life will no longer be on hold in the hope that it will.

Interestingly enough, the main information is still in there and this is what we are going to start with and share with you.

As I am a visual person and retain so much better if I write things down, so my BLOG will be my memory… now to remember to Post lol…

So, ALL joking aside, I have decided that some sort of guide will work for me, and the following is what I will cover in the weeks to follow.

First, you will need to know what you need to Learn to Sew: including Equipment needed as well how to chose your Sewing Machine.

From knowing how to thread your Sewing Machine, how to use it and which seam to chose as well as hand-sewing stitches.

You will need to know what fabric to use for which occasion as well as understand notions, and reading a basic Sewing Pattern.

Laying out a pattern on the fabric and cutting it out correctly will play a huge part in the final outcome of the item you have chosen to sew.

Finally, I will demonstrate: Sewing on buttons, inserting sippers, hems etc in Video and Step by Step Tutorials.

In between all of the above, I would like to add new patterns to my PDF Database collection as I go, along with sharing what I use and where I source it from.

Sharing knowledge is important to me and I encourage all of you to do the same. I would love to see what you have made and encourage you to post them online here, but if you are not confident enough to do so, please email them to me.

I am excited to be working with you again and look forward to seeing your sewing projects in the near future.
