Do you know you Pins?

Do you know your pins? Here’s a little visit through some of the pins in my own collection.

How many names do you know? What the large pin was used for?  Share your thoughts below.

Sewing with Jessie Chorley

If you’re looking for an amazing, creative reboot, then I can heartily recommend a Jessie Chorley workshop. Her work is stunning. Handmade and hand stitched.

 
 
I had a brilliant day. The class was held at my local Embroiderers’ Guild and was designed around making a Pin & Needle case that could be worn as a brooch. 
 
As usual I took the idea and added my own twist, making a larger piece that could be worn on an apron pocket – starting with a colourful, vintage handkerchief.

 
A brilliant day with stitching friends – sewing, chatting and sharing sewing ideas – with a bonus of lots of stitchery homework to keep me happy tomorrow. What a perfect day.
