The July meet was another lively, but (this time) surprisingly productive, session! If you weren’t able to attend, you might even be surprised to hear that not only were there sewing machines on the Sewanista Studio tables… but they were actually being used too! Don’t believe me? Here’s just a taste of what went down on Saturday afternoon…
- Sarah marveled at a machine with a one-step buttonhole function (and proceeded to sew 11 button holes down the front of a new dress, with such ease!);
- Elizabeth continued sewing for her new house – hemming a new table cloth and shower curtain;
- Debra worked on cutting out and starting the sewing of a tomato print apron;
- Gill showed off her newest creations, including some impressive welt pockets in a new pair of trousers, and a 1950s style dress (for which she had had to grade the pattern herself!);
- Irene blanket-stitched her way around a felted scarf (and shared the traumatic tales of her recent Wicked Camper trip from Broome to Perth;
- Vanessa put her overlocker to work, serging seams on a new faux-wrap dress;
- Sandra chatted and shared from her mental-encyclopaedia of knowledge re: slopers, adjusting patterns, vintage patterns and more(!);
- and Jacquie (despite her car doing its utmost to prevent her from getting out to Malaga)… made it, yay!
We also welcomed Fleur, Kate & Sally to their first BSCPerth sewing club meet! They joined the regulars in *actually* sewing… and Kate even blogged about it, with pictures! Thanks for coming ladies – it was great to meet you all :).
