A Sewing & Knitting Blog, Made in Birmingham, England

British Craft Awards Nomination & Elsewhere


I heard today that I have been nominated for Sewing Blog of the Year in the 2017 British Craft Awards, ‘Sewing’ category!

My blog has never been shortlisted for anything similar before, so it’s very nice to be included and there are some great blogs in the list.

Voting is now open at www.britishcraftawards.com (with a prize draw to win one of 5 x £100 Amazon vouchers), until 20th December 2016.


♥ I’ve booked a ticket for The Dressmakers Ball in Leicester next May – it sounds like it’s going to be a great night, and a great excuse to sew up an impractical frock.

♥ I love these natural dyeing themed postcards from Pompom Quarterly.

♥ I have a few knitting projects on the needles, but I’m looking forward to making a start on Ella Gordon’s Hap Cowl very soon.

♥ People Tree are crowdfunding to upskill partners to produce Tencel in a closed loop process, and ethically produce garments from the fabric. Interesting stuff.

♥  shiftWorks exhibition at the National Centre for Craft and Design (12 Nov-08 Jan), twelve textile artists celebrate the shift dress.

♥  ‘Luxury brands feed demand for return of UK’s cotton and knitwear mills‘ in the Guardian.
