Sewing with Nana

Hi there!

These days are a bit crazy… just can’t believe it is already April! I need to step up a gear… or two! At the moment I have about a thousand unfinished designs lying around my desk, so I just need to stop coming up with new ideas and actually finish up some of the ones I already have! Will try to scan and post some of the sketches I’ve been working on very soon, see if that gets me started!

Anyway…

Today I had my second sewing class with my grandma! She is 93 and awesome! :) She was actually trained as tailoring teacher, so she’s amazing at explaining what is what and how to do about everything. And thankfully she have tones of patience!!! :) She has a lovely vintage sewing machine, pedal included. It’s the most beautiful thing, and works to perfection! That is the machine… because I turned out to be quite a masterful thread snapper! The good thing is that now I can truly say I know how to thread the old thing! :)

By the way, anyone’s seen this video? It is definitely not how I would decorate my home, but still think it’s quite amazing! Specially loving the bike and the neon signs (sadly I can’t say the same about those poor stuffed things…)


Love, Adri

When I finally learn how to sew…

Colette Patterns will see my first shopping spree!
