I have a piece of lavender coloured raw silk that wnts to be a top to go with a back velvet skirt but it's competing for my attention with some cherry red organza. I'm waiting for inspiration to strike me with a design for one of them!
It's hard to say. I'm better at some things than others.
I'd like to imrove my skills in sewing delicate fabrics like silk satin & chiffon, as I find it hard to get a nice finish with those and I'm interested in trying out anything new to me.
I'm not really an expert in any specific skill, as I love trying new things too much to perfect my skills in any single area but I'm happy to share any skills and experience I do have, if other people want help.
I first heard about the group on the London Free List website.
I've been sewing for as long as I can remember but lost momentum after moving to London. Being part of a group spurs me on to make a start.
I found everyone very friendly and generous in sharing their knowledge and experience.
