I have been wanting to make a Travel Sewing Kit for sometime now. We are in the car quite often and  it seems like the perfect place to take along my hand sewing projects. I wanted something compact, yet large enough to hold the essentials that I would need. After checking out several different patterns, I ended up making the Fold-Up Sewing Folio from the book Stitched Sewing Organizers by

A little accountability.... from Tuppence Ha'penny Quilts

I'm sure we've all seen the meme on Facebook or Instagram this New Year about a resolution to finish the things in 2019 that I started in 2018, having bought the fabric in 2017 and the pattern in 2016, and had the idea in 2015..... you get the picture.

Well, I have a confession - I am a starter of new shiny things....... and I know I am not alone in this. So this year, in an effort to get all the things I've started to a point where I might be able to a) call them finished ...

Sewing Shindig, September 2018 from Tuppence Ha'penny Quilts

Following the success of the Stitched Sewing Organizers Sewalong, I've been in need of a new project. So I'm happy to announce a new boutique sewing retreat, Sewing Shindig, to be held in September this year, in Shropshire.

We have three fabulous teachers - not only quilter extraordinaire Trudi Wood, and talented quilt designer and maker Susan Standen but also the fabulous fabric and pattern designer and author Aneela Hoey!

It’s a fabulous book, full of lots of different and unique projects allowing you to try out new techniques and work with some materials you may not have used before (super firm interfacing and vinyl in particular.)

pretty and novel stash from Charm About You

This week I got a squishy fabric parcel from Fabricworm and I had stuffed that envelope full of sale goodies!

I'm trying to shop smart and after assessing what I already have in my stash I knew I needed some more good blender prints and I'm lacking fun prints for fussy cutting so I was on the hunt for those too. 

First I couldn't resist this sweet fortune teller print, which is lawn and so beautiful to the touch. The Aneela Hoey print was one I had seen someone use and fell in love with it and ...

Let's talk about interfacing, baby...... from Tuppence Ha'penny Quilts

Ok, so that doesn’t scan quite so well as the original song lyrics, but since I decided to write this post, I can’t get that Salt’n’Pepa song out of my head. And I have to find something to make interfacing a fun subject!

 “Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be, let’s talk about it…..”

 So there have been some questions during the sewalong about materials and in particular, interfacing – weight, brand, type etc. In the book, there is a whole section describing the different types and their ...
