It seems as if I've been on the phone all week trying to sort out one issue or another but I did manage to get back to doing the videos. If you have any craft related questions you'd like discussing, then please let me know.

This weeks member's showcase comes from Nicola. She went fabric shopping with her mum this week and this is the first of a number of dresses she is making. I love the colour, it's the perfect dress for enjoying summer. It reminds me, I really need to get back to the sewing machine, I have trousers to complete.
In Video Tips
When sewing thick layers of fabric as in quilting, or things like leatherette, a walking foot make life so much easier. This video just quickly introduces the walking foot and explains how it works. Do you use a walking foot? If so, what do you use it for?

All the yarn used is WI Premium Acrylic from Hobbycraft. I used this yarn for the first time to create a project I'm yet to share with you. The flowers have all been made from the leftover yarn I'd used. There is a great choice of colours in this yarn and I loved working with it. Although it is acrylic, it had an almost wool like feel to it. I'd highly recommend the yarn and it's still available 3 balls for the price of 2. Great yarn, great colours, great price. (£2.20 per 100g ball)
The coming week is going to be a busy one for me. There's going to be a bespoke order for an ironing blanket, videos for new classes and workshops. If you want to join our club member's making bags, join this week and get all three classes as part of your joining package.
