Wednesday Weekly #36

Posted by Helen | May 11, 2016 | Wednesday Weekly

Happy Wednesday, makers!  I am still recovering from the amazing Our Social Fabric sale last weekend here in Vancouver.  It was so crazy!  I got a bunch of new fabrics, mostly knits because I am trying to sew more casual wear. I’ve been organizing and rearranging fabrics (I am running out of room), and finding all sorts of things I had forgotten about.  It is exciting and also daunting to look through one’s stash….better get sewing and make some space!
