      Hi Ellie! No, I didn’t receive your message…You may use elpyriakou@gmail.com if this isn’t big trouble. At the moment I live in hell at work and I don’t feel I’m leaving in Friday…The weather forecast says it will be raining in Berlin but in Athens the temperature will be 45 degrees….I think I prefer the rain.

    Aaaargh! Dear Elpida, I hope you’re doing well. I have problems replying to your reply on your studio sub page. Anyways, here’s my answer concerning the wheather at the end of June in Berlin. At the moment it is quite changeable. But June/July in general can be very hot with around 30 degrees. Of course, this is not as hot as in Greece,:-) but from my perspective it is very warm – above all in the city. The only kind of jacket I usually wear in summer is a cardigan. Even a light bomber jacket will do, which is by the way on my sewing list. And I’m very happy that the July issue includes a nice pattern. Let me know, if you need further hints planning your trip. As I wrote before, I will be happy to list some good options for fabric shopping. Feel free to contact me on direct message here (I am not sure, if it works.) Otherwise I am also on Instagram (ellie.sew.happy). Love, Ellie

      Hi Ellie! I’m really excited with this trip. I’ll travel with my best friend Fani. I met her when our sons strated school, 12 years ago. This June the boys will give exams for Uinversity and their mothers will celbrate their adulltness with a trip to Berlin! At the moment we’ve only booked the tickets and we are trying to make a plan because we’ll be travelling on our own (without a trevel agency) and there are SOOOOO many things we have to do. Every advice is welcome and deeply appreciated and I’ll contact you later when I’ll have a clearer view of our trip. I would also love to have a quick fabric store tour ! Love Elpida :-)

    Ελπίδα γεια σου! Ήθελα τη γνώμη σου για ένα φόρεμα που λέω να κάνω και το έχεις ράψει κ εσύ…Το εχεις ονομάσει simply floral και είναι από το τεύχος 6/2015. Εσύ θυμάσαι αν το έκοψες στο μέγεθος που κόβεις συνήθως ή αν το έκανες μικρότερο; Μου φαίνεται πολύ μεγάλο κ λέω να κόψω 1 νούμερο μικρότερο τουλάχιστον…Εσύ τι λες;

      Να σου πω την αλήθεια δε θυμάμαι αν το έκανα μικρότερο Νομίζω πως το έκοψα κανονικά στο νούμερό μου αλλά είναι πράγματι τεράστιο. Σίγουρα μπορείς να το κάνεις και ένα, ίσως και δύο μεγέθη μικρότερο και πάλι τεράστιο θα είναι… Είναι πάντως εύκολο και ωραίο.Καλή επιτυχία!

      η Αϊντα μου είπε ότι θα είναι αύριο στις 12 στο Μοναστηράκι, οπότε ας βρεθούμε εκεί για να μη μπλέξουμε. Τα λέμε αύριο.

    On sunday I visited an art market where my friend and her mum shared a stall. My friends mum had written and illustrated an children’s book about the cats of Rhodes. She had a prolonged visited there with Greek friends years ago and it is very dear to her. I purchased a copy for my daughter who is studying to be a teacher I thought of all your lovely pics shot in Rhodes too.

    I was thrilled to hear that you identified with me. (Maybe my girls will learn to sew one day to save themselves some money. ) Your sewing is amazing considering you just started 2 years ago Maybe having a “maths” brain, sewing would be natural for you as the structure of sewing is very logical. I consider myself a maths nerd-I was very happy to receive a scientific calculator from my father for my 16th birthday! Last year I had my first ever overseas trip and I visited your lovely city. It reminded me of my city- friendly and relaxed. My city has a Mediterranean climate and we have many Greeks here. I love to visit my favourite greek bakery for baklava.
