September Sewing Zine Vlog

Vlog Logo - September Sew Zine

I’ve just published a short vlog with some favourite sewing (and the odd knitting) related things I’ve spotted recently. All being well, I’m hoping to make it a regular series.

I used to publish lists of some of my favourite finds on the blog, but the vlog seems an ideal way of sharing them.

I’ve had a lovely quiet Sunday morning filming and editing; hopefully it will make for ideal Sunday afternoon viewing. I’m now going to get back to work on my refashioners project, accompanied by tea and a (admittedly complete bilge) Hedy Lamarr film.
