Get Stitched together....

Its been exciting to see over 100 of you take the free Aurana Top pattern in the last couple of days. I look forward to pictures of your makes filling my inbox!

The link is gone today….😭 ….but please don’t be disappointed if you want the pattern. By the end of this month – July 2017 – I’ll be publishing a new edition of my revived ezine “Get Stitched”. Included in the fantastic items exploding from the newsletter will be a voucher to purchase the Aurana Top in my Etsy shop for $1. You can only use the voucher once and it will expire after 10th August so if you’re not already a subscriber all you need do is fill in the subscribe link on the right side bar of this blog. It is a monthly publication so you won’t be lambasted with emails.

I’m writing Get Stitched because I want to share all sorts of great information and links to keep you inspired as a sewist and textile artist. It will be chock full of sewing tips rounded up from the internet and ideas for textile art techniques, pictures of art to wear and adornments. We all lead busy lives and want to spend as much of our leisure time as possible imagining and creating things with our hands. So I hope Get Stitched will be a resource you can go to that is a collection of gems you can dive into and use to enrich your creativity.

Gifts in July

Yippee! The Aurana Top pattern is up, running and published....and I'm GIVING IT AWAY FREE for a short time on this blog. Only for a few days then the link will be gone. I'm delighted to offer this gift to the loyal blog readers who follow me and as a thank you to those who've taken the time to give me comments and feedback now and then.

UPDATE!The link for the free Aurana Top pattern has expired as of 26/07/2017. If you subscribe to my newsletter "Get Stitched" you'll receive a voucher that entitles you to purchase it for $1, up until August 10th, 2017. The subscribe link is at the top right side bar of this blog.

With this completed I'm looking forward to spending the next few days writing the soon to be revived "Get Stitched" newsletter. I have some really exciting ideas to share in that! The subscribe link has been restored to the top of the side bar if you want to get in on the buzz.

All going well with that it should be ready to hit the interwebs by the end of this week and then the next task will be return to publish that fabulous dress "Pheenie" that I blogged about a few weeks ago.....
