Teaching sewing is such a brilliant job to have, and I nearly always come home from every class totally buzzing from another spent in great company teaching the thing that I love. But the reality of my sewing life at home is snatched moments here and there and WAY too many ideas than I have time to sew!
The Start to Stitch classes have been filling well from word of mouth and social media likes and shares but a website felt like a natural progression. A significant reason for this was my desire to have a place to share my sewing projects in more detail than Instagram or Facebook allows, and to share some of my hopes and aspirations for my sewing projects to come. And so the Cutting Table Diaries should become an online journal of my stitching adventures, my hand made wardrobe and my brilliant sewing finds. I hope it becomes a place of interest and inspiration to many sewists in Cornwall where I live, and beyond.
This is my cosy corner of my garden sewing studio where many things happen on my trusty old Bernina. Once day I'll write a blog post in honour of this loyal machine!
I have big dreams for 2020, and a rather ambitious project in the offing, so watch this space to find out more!
