Sewing tips

Just a couple more sewing tips I thought might be of some use to you.

I have had a number of people asking me to explain the measurements on the "inch" tape, so I hope this will help.

Another tip is for when your buying fabric or a dress,etc. scrunch it in your hands and if it falls back and holds its shape,great! but if it holds the wrinkles,by all means buy it if you like ,but just remember it might need a lot of ironing!

First weave

I just had to show you this piece of weave my granddaughter of 10yrs did in school
this week.It's her first piece and she is thrilled.
She also loves to paint and she plays the "tin whistle".
It's great to see schools are teaching crafts to children and keeping up tradition.
