This week I’ve embarked on a new project…. Learning how to sew! First I had to do my research and look at what suites my shedule. Some colleges need payment up front and have a long list of materials needed for classes, others needed you to be majorly committed to routinely attending class every week, and finally I found a school that is perfect for me! I can attend classes whenever it suites my shdule and I don’t need to bring materials or my own machine.
How did this come about? I’ve noticed how excitted I am about prints, textiles and material structure and after listening to that little voice in my head “I wonder how they do that?” I finally gave in and figured I’d try to learn. Ideally Id love to get into textile design but I’m fascinated about how textiles behave and how it can be manipulated.
Where did I decide to go? To Margaret Adam Sewing School at coorparoo, I’ve been really impressed at the level of expertise, advice and guidance I’ve had while attending class. Margaret tailored my entire curriculum around what I wanted to achieve in the end. www.margaretadamsewing.com.au
|I love this older machine. Even though its “nearing retirement” as Margaret phased. I love the colours. It seemed to have had a life span of more that 40 years!|
|Before attending class I ducked into a place called Vintage Kitchen for a coffee. I think they probably see me drop in before class for a takeaway flat white! www.vintagecloset.com.au|
|After a long weekend of work we stop to play with the kids. Matt found some roller blades for Ella and couldn’t help but get himself a pair so that they could “roller disco” together.|
|Breakfast on the deck! Finally we’re nearing the end of our renovations and tacking time to enjoy it. Soon I’ll be publishing a post with a few tips for renovating and the trades that we used. Have a great week!|
