    Hello Madscouser, I was just checking in with you to see if your log out issue have been fixed. When you have a chance just give me a quick note on my wall to let me know.

    Happy sewing!

    thank you for your nice comment on my “linen bow dress for future me”! Yes, since I can’t grow anymore (vertically), if my waist gets smaller by an inch or so, I think I can stand tall and wear it outside… hopefully soon!

      I’m afraid it’s just a pic I nabbed off the internet somewhere! I’d love that sewing machine but never seen anyone selling it! :-(

    Hiya, I tried to come to the sewing club last night just after 6 but there didn’t seem to be anyone there (not sure if it was just the dodgey doorbell) was it on? and when is the next one, I’d be keen to come. THanks, Elizabeth

      I’m really sorry – I must have just missed you by seconds! We realised that the bell wasn’t working so at about 6:05pm I went upstairs and waited there till 6:30pm to let people in! You can always knock at teh bookshop next door & they’ll let you in!

      The next meeting will be in the 14th December – I won’t be there but Jacqui will be. Hope you can come along.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Only just seen this, our next meeting is actually tonight at 6pm! I’m guessing that might be too late so our next one after tha will be the 23rd November. It’d be great to see you then.

      TTFN, Beth

    Thanks a lot for your nice comment on my charlie. I like the combination of fabrics also. And yes, my niece love the bag! I hope I can find time and silence to sew more things. Great that you´re taking studies about sewing.

    Hi Madscouser, thanks for commenting on my Twinkle skirt, I love that fabric so much, it’s the first thing I’ve made with Ikea fabric but I think I will try and use it more, it’s so comfy and will wear well :)

For more info, email me at kathleen@larkbooks.com, or find the invite, info, and proposal form here: http://www.larkbooks.com/submissions/artist-submissions Thanks, and feel free to spread the word with your crafty friends. Best, Kathleen

    Hello MS, Glad to read you are keeping up with the studies. We will be moving in 6 wks, so I’ll be off-line for most of the time. (only till I pack the traps for the big day ! HAHA!) Hope to post “list” over the weekend. Cross your fingers and keep well, Cordially, Nehmah

    Hello Beth, How are you doing? I haven’t had much time lately to rummage around the Forum. What with hunting for a new cave, so we can hibernate this winter; getting the list ready (I do believe that the items are moving around so I can’t find them); and MD’s visits; live is getting very interesting. I think we have found a place. Fred hasn’t settled his mind just yet. Keep well, Emily

    Thank you for your comment on my dress :) I am so glad you like it! If you decide to make it, make sure to check out pattern review for all the advice because it’s a tricky pattern! (But so worth it)
