KATE’S TOP STITCHING AD­VICE

Simply Sewing - - A GOOD READ -

“You can never have too many pins. When I was study­ing fash­ion at the Northum­bria Univer­sity in New­cas­tle, our tech­ni­cians were es­sen­tially this amaz­ing tribe of grannies who’d worked in sewing fac­to­ries all their lives. Their sewing knowl­edge was in­sane. One of them, Lil­lian, took me un­der her wing and she would al­ways say, ‘Just trust me on this, if you spend four times the amount of time you think you need on pin­ning, ev­ery­thing will be bet­ter.’ She was right, of course. I wish I could have half an hour with Lil­lian now.”
