About me and my blog

Hi, I’m Jane.
I’ve recently taken up sewing and have been amazed by all the inspiring blogs out there full of great ideas and helpful techniques.  Sewing away in my little attic can be a lonely business, particularly when things don’t go as well I had hoped (which is fairly often).  So this is a blog about my adventures with my sewing machine; the good, the bad and the ugly.  I hope you enjoy it, please leave me a message to tell me what you think, I’d love to hear from you,

  1. What is your name on Ravelry – I love the site and spend many happy hours seeing what I can make with my stash of yarn. This has grown recently as our local yarn shop where we meet each week for knitting groups is sadly closing on Saturday! Too high rents in Knutsford for them to continue, however we have all taken advantage of their 50%off sale including Debbie Bliss Rowan Noro yarn etc, am currently knitting the Wingspan shawl with Noro silk garden- lovely – I am Sewingjen on Ravelry! Have a look!

    • Shame about your knitting shop. I can recommend Knit and Yarn in Bungay, it’s probably too far for you to get to but they have a great website if you need to buy any yarn in the future.

      My ravellry name is JEM80. I’ve been knitting for years, far longer than I have sewn. I like the look of some of your knitting projects.

  2. Hi Jane
    Just to say I very much like your blog: it’s an interesting mix of reviews, courses, the best of Burda and bakes (which BTW are very fattening, and that’s just from looking…. )
    Best wishes

    • Thank you so much. I haven’t had much time to update it recently and its become sadly neglected but I hope to get back to it in the next few weeks.

      I enjoyed your blog too. I love the way you are so keen to experiment .

  3. Hi Jane, I know it was a while ago (!) but did you get any joy on sewing with twin needles on your Janome? I bought my DC3050 from John Lewis on the basis that it could accommodate twin needles but neither Janome nor JL are able to advise how to thread or the settings to use.
