I'd love to make something like this!
Stitchsmiths has a new toy! Anyone tried spinning before? I haven't done it for many years, but I'm excited about getting back into it!
ALL THE STITCHSMITHS SEWING MACHINES ARE NOW SOLD! Thank you everyone for your interest and support! If you bought one of them, why not post a photo of her in her new home. And I hope you get many hours of sewing joy from your Stitchsmiths Sewing Machine! :-) :-)
Has the #greatbritishsewingbee got you interested in sewing? Would you like your own sewing machine? How do you fancy getting your hands on one of the #stitchsmiths machines? Well, you can! All of our sewing machines are due for upgrading, so they are available for sale! They are John Lewis machines, made by Janome. I named them, from left to right: Bette, Mae, Ava, Ginger, Judy, Rita -named after film stars! The photo shows all six, in different colours. There's just one of each so reserve yours now! Because most students use their own sewing machines, none of these have been overly used, but each one will be thoroughly cleaned, checked and oiled before it leaves the studio. Your Stitchsmiths machine has one of our logo stickers over the John Lewis logo, which I'll either remove or leave in place, as you wish. It will also come in the original box and packaging with all the original attachments and I'll include the custom maintenance kit, handmade pin cushion and sewing pouch with scissors etc, which Stitchsmiths students will recognise. All this for just £60! The machines are too heavy to post - sorry! So collection from Middleton on Sea (near Bognor Regis) although we may be able to arrange a local pick-up if you speak to me nicely. What are you waiting for? Time to get sewing!
Nice little hoard of fabric and yarn purchased today... Lots of projects in mind for these. Do share photos of your stash. I love having a nosey...

Sweltering heat again today! Nearly got sunstroke waiting for my (very late!) bus! The remedy for that is an ice cold green smoothie and a chocolate brownie, sitting quietly for a while with a cold pack on my head! #greensmoothie #chocolate #cacao #itshottoday #heatwave #summer
Three ingredients = yummy healthy brownies chilling in my freezer. #walnuts #dates #cocoapowder #rawbrownie #vegan #glutenfree #elevenses
Impromptu knitting lesson this afternoon. Purling, increasing and decreasing. Well done @captainsgirl45 You are a natural! #besties #friends #knitting #knittersofinstagram
Yesterday, with its bill-paying, shopping and housework (for 'twas payday) was rather too grown up for my liking. What it needed was a creative project. I therefore give you: the sewing room Pom-Pom curtain! A little silliness for a sunny day!
Proper pleased with how my new jumper has turned out! Just the right shade of brown to go with everything I wear and my hair! #experiment #wool #dyeing #lovelybrown #woodland #earthy #naturaltones
Coming along nicely!
Got this nice jumper from work. 100% blue faced Leicester but in a colour I'll never wear. Going to dye it with these old tins of cold dye I found in the cupboard with my other dyes. For wool it recommends vinegar so I've got some cheap malt vinegar from the post office across the road. Let's see how it goes! #dyeing #wool #experiment #sunday #afternoon
Sprouting already! #cornflowers #sweetpeas #indoorgarden #summer
Oh, the detail on the toes! #knittersofinstagram #socks #knitintheround
