Sewing Machines / Re: Sashiko Machine
« on: January 01, 2019, 23:19:52 PM »
Sorry I haven't got one but I have lusted after one.
I do remember seeing some you tube videos on them and an American woman called Evy Hawkins who had written booklets (I think) on using the machines.  She has a web site called A Bit of Stitch and on there is a video of how to thread the machine so that may help. :)
I also kept this link in case I ever bought one.  It won't help with threading but should if you ever get started. https://www.quiltingboard.com/blogs/babylock-sashiko-machine-tips-reduce-thread-breakage-b13272.html

Courses & Classes / Re: Pattern drafting course needed

I can recommend Jane White Couture in Barton Upon Humber.  I have done 4 days of pattern drafting with her and really enjoyed it and came away with skirt, bodice and trouser blocks.  I then did a further day recently about moving the darts around blocks.

Great  :loveit:  I will try and send you a pm.  Bare with me as I'm a newbie!  It might take me a day or so to work that out

Publications / Re: Threads Magazine - hard copy?

My local Smiths no longer has these on display.  I asked and they said that they can orfer it but are not getting copies to put on the stand.  Quite a few needle craft and quilting ones have disappeared off their shelves over the last few months. :(
