Retail Therapy on the Sewing front!

Hello, Hello!

How is everyone?

I’ve been busy busy. With the new job, I’ve not had much time for anything other than sewing and housework and trying to find the balance between the 2.

But today I was flicking through the albums on my phone & computer and seen, I have heaps of posts waiting to be composed. So in true style lets kick off with some of my SHOPPING  finds!!

So books I’ve wanted these books FOREVER, so bit the bullet and ordered them!

I can’t wait to get my hands on these little beauties! I already know what my next books will be! ADDICTED MAYBE! So… go on let the cat out the bag, what book could you not live without?!?!? I’m a massive fan of The Art of Manipulating Fabric~ Collette Wolff. I may need to buy a new bookshelves soon!

I didn’t just stick to buying books…. I bought a few sewing machine feet! Because you can never have too many!

This is a Bias Binding foot…. Have you ever seen one?!? It’s a first for me, Bias binding is not my forte, and if it’s any good it’s a welcomed addition! Have you ever used one? Does it work for you?

That’s not all my shopping either!

I have been back on Craftsy

So what did I pick up this time?

Sew Designer Jeans ~ Angela Wolf

Jean-ius ~ Kenneth D King

I can’t wait to get the time to start these… I think my craftsy classes have become a new addiction! A bit like my fabric stash! I am slowly getting through my serging class.. Well worth the money I say!

So what have you been buying on the sewing front recently?

Do share!

  2. I got Drape Drape & promptly purchased 2 & 3. I must say 2 & 3 are my favourites of the DD and I’ve already made/blogged about 5 of the designs up. They are such fun & create amazing garments. Enjoy!!!
    I’ve got Pattern Magic but can’t find my copy in the sewing room at the moment…
