It’s video time! The format is a little different from my usual videos, as it’s me telling the story of why I began sewing and what it was like sewing in the 80’s and early 90’s. I’m sure some of you old timers can relate, it was very different before the sewing internet happened. In the video I talk about my first makes, how I used visit fabric stores after school and drool over the glamours Vogue designer patterns and how hard it was to find info on a lot of sewing techniques that are now just a Google search or a Facebook group away. And of course, I will give you the backstory on how my obsession with German pattern magazines started. Plus I will show you the only garment I have left from that time period!
Blog posts mentioned in the video
I’m switching to Tuesday schedule for my videos for the rest of December since the biggest holidays of the year in Sweden (New Year’s Eve and X-mas Eve) are both on a weekend this year. Plus I will release the book on Tuesday the 12 of December (so close, but still so much to do!) and I want to make a release video about the book on that day as well. More info on the book will come this Tuesday!
