One of the main reasons that my initial attempts at clothes making were so bin worthy is that I just couldn't get my head around all of these different types of fabric, I mean what the f*&k is Gaberdine? I became obsessive about buying all these cool fabrics that I saw and yet I didn't have a scooby doo about what they were and what they could be used for. Even though I have literally over 100 sewing books and 4 suitcases of fabric I still couldn't work out what each one was for, what the difference was between a heavy weight and medium weight and of course invariably that meant that I was using the wrong thread, the wrong machine settings and the wrong needles. I am determined to get to grips with this so I will be doing videos on how to identify fabrics, what they are suitable for and all the other bits and pieces we need to know.

I will also be putting together fabric sample books that I will sell in my etsy shop for those who are interested. I know that for me this would have been an absolute godsend
