Great Northern Irish Sewing Bee ?? And other stories!

Today we had 6 sewing machines up in my kitchen and load of sewing took place from my stash of bits...


If you want to see all the old Singer hand cranked sewing machines we used (and 2 electric ones) then go take a peek here: 


Anyway this is the little pile of stuff we made - one item of clothing in there too..... a skirt - folded on the left.


Meanwhile I'm still working on two items for the Style the Stash Challenge and they should be finished in a couple of days... a shirt which just needs button holes, and a top in the Ugandan fabric that just needs sleeves... 

Watch this space because SOON they will be finished...  :)

What a fun way to spend the day and a great way for younger sew-ers to gain confidence.

Thanks :-) It was a really lovely day actually. As you say Janine it's a great way to get the less experienced started and every body had different ideas of what they wanted to make. We are hoping to do another day some time.....

It's a pity we all live so far away from each other - this sounds like a really fun day - thanks for sharing this with us :)
