Oh, but first.
Thanks, friends for your mutual love of silks last week. To answer a common question: no, I don’t use a stabilizer. When you sew small pieces, some of the physics of woven fabrics are nullified. Give it a try to see…

Oh, it’s been a couple of weeks since the Slow Stitching Retreat at Medomak in Washington, Maine and I long to be back there prodding folks to sew smaller, lingering on the porch in rocking chairs, and hanging with some of the best folks on the planet.

RealJob began today in earnest and it’s hard to say when I’ll come up for air again. But I’m trying to figure out how to include a little making every day as part of good self-care. And then I hope to share more with you throughout the year. I miss this space a bit and miss hearing from you, dear readers.
Have a great week!
