Why is my dining room/sewing table in such a crazy state?
Because I’m getting ready for a super busy sewing weekend.On Saturday (11/1) I’m selling my Rewind Designs at my favorite local farmers market WWFM in Cary, (NC), and on Sunday (11/2), I’m teaching a Practical Sewing Workshop at the Scrap Exchange in Durham;
The craft market a rain or shine event–looks like rain or at least cloudy and cool weather, but there are some bright spots:
I finished the 3 clutch purses in 40s and 50s fabrics that I was working on last week. I’m very pleased with the results.
And I’m working on some favorite little pieces for the sale: quilted pot holders and pet place mats.
Plus–I’ll have more than a dozen of my signature super-sturdy garden/craft tool aprons. They are my top sellers.
The sewing pile for Sunday’s class is not nearly as creative, but just as important, maybe even more so since it’s promoting sustainability.
I have jeans to hem, shirts and pants to alter, and my favorite garden shorts to patch. Note to self: never put metal bolts in your pants pocket. Use a super sturdy tool apron instead.
