I had an unwanted break from sewing for five whole days! Ugh! But while on a trip to Austin, Texas came across an awesome place called Stitch Lab on 1st street! They have a small shop with modern quilters cotton and a nice notions selection. I picked up a few vintage buttons
and talked to a sewing teacher about my frustrations with my sewing machine. They teach a variety of classes including sewing crafts or garments, needle arts, knitting, crotchet, quilting and screen printing! And if only I lived in Austin….they have a sewing lounge for social stitching!!
On another note, Stylo Magazine issue 2 is out! It’s an online magazine by a great group of bloggers, sewists and pattern makers that focuses on home sewn kids fashions. Sew cool!
I did get back to sewing. I cut the fabric for the next geranium dress but then couldn’t get to my machine for five days. Last night was a series of silly sewing mistakes which I’ll post about tomorrow after I finish the dress.
