welcome To The One Thimble Blog
I have a confession …
. . . I sew most of the samples for our photo shoots . . . BUT if its a hand sewing sample you can guarantee I haven’t sewn it!
I like the IDEA of hand sewing …
. . . Sewing you can do at netball practice
or while waiting for school pick-ups
or while watching Frozen for the 4 billionth time
or while you’re on holidays and away from your sewing machine, what’s not to love?!
But somewhere between recognising its a good idea and actually completing a project I chicken out!
Which brings me to this challenge . . .
If you’ve been planning to give hand-sewing a go “someday”, or always wanted to complete the Pretend Play Adventure Kit but needed a little hand-holding I would absolutely LOVE to have you join me! We can learn together!
If you’re a hand sewing aficionado who gets excited about mentoring newbies through their first hand sewing project, we’d love to have you along too!
How will it work?
1) Join the One Thimble Sewing Enthusiasts group on facebook.
2) Get your copy of the Pretend Play Adventure Kit as a stand alone here or in Issue 10 here.
3) Drop by the group each day to see which steps we’re doing, read Alicia’s extra tips/explanation for beginners, ask questions and share your WIP. Search the #pretendplaysewalong
When is it?
Things will kick off “officially” on Thursday 21st April, but there’ll be some preparatory information tomorrow to help you with choosing and cutting your felt.
If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to ask – either comment below or send me an email. I’m a big fan of questions because they help me learn too!
Hope to see you there.
