our website update

February’s fav blog
I found this site last year, and regularly dip in for a browse at all their lovely ideas, products and tips. They are based in new york, my fav city after London, and I dream that i am there in SoHo NYC
Thrifty’s Book of the month-
Although I don’t have children, many of our students do. Often that is why they want to learn about sewing. Children’s clothes are exorbitantly expensive, and have such a short life. 
We are developing some workshops on making children’s clothes, and I stumbled upon this book. It is totally delicious and has not only some great projects, but all the patterns too!

vintage patterns and websites

Hello again blog, so sorry to have neglected you.......

We had a returning student yesterday at our 'Starting from scratch beginners day' who is interested in all things vintage, i have been looking for some resources for her, and found this fantastic site

I have also read some reviews for a modern pattern company creating vintage inspired patterns which fit our generation. Yummy..

We will be ordering some patterns soon and trying them out
