Circle Cardie Sew Along

I am SO excited to announce that we will be partnering with Rebecca Page and Hey Penny Fabrics to bring you another amazing sewalong! As has been done in the past, it will be loosely structured sewalong. Participants can feel free, and are encouraged, to post in the Aus Sewing group as often as they like, using the hashtag #JUNESEWALONG so we can all keep track of everyone’s progress. Final garment pictures need to be submitted to the sew along album in the group for judging.   This month we will be celebrating the turn of the season by sewing up the stunning Circle Cardie from Rebecca Page. This pattern is such a quick, easy (and addictive) sew that results in a beautiful and cosy cardigan. It is perfect for fabric that drapes beautifully, and also the comfy, cosy fabrics, making it a truly dynamic garment. It ranges from XXS-5XL and also has a matching girls version, or a bundle with both ladies and girls. Rebecca Page has been generous enough to offer a 25% discount on both the girls and ladies versions, also on the bundle of the two. To take advantage of this amazing discount, use the code CCSEWALONG25 at the checkout. Rebecca Page is also offering a $30AUD voucher to the winner of the sew along to be spent on the Rebecca Page website!     Hey Penny Fabrics...

The community responded in kind,...

Husqvana Designer Jade 35

On Saturday 14 October, I had the privilege of being invited to the Blessington Retailers Convention. Blessington is the parent company and distributor for some of the most well known sewing companies in Australia, including Singer, Husqvana, Pfaff, Handi Quilter and AccuQuilt. I was invited to take part in two classes held during the day, offering me the rare opportunity to play with some of latest toys on the market, including the Husqvana Designer Jade 35. I think it can be safely said that I am a Husqvana girl at heart. My machine in an entry level, mechanical Husqvana...
