Nancy, (Nancy2001 from patternreview.com) is my local sewing buddy. We've established our own sewing circle of two that meets weekly. Thursdays used to be our day but then we discovered new discounts are taken at Americas Thrift on Tuesday so we switched.
Nancy and I are similar in that we both learned to sew as adults and approach the craft with a touch of obsession. While I specialize more in jeans (for the moment at least) Nancy is fixated on jackets. Each week we meet for an hour in her kitchen to share our sewing projects, new techniques and notion finds. Then we hit the thrift shops and sometimes some fabric stores if we need something specific.
This week I brought my video camera and let it run while we talked about Nancy's most recent jacket. The video was almost an hour in length and I was able to edit it down to around 16 minutes for you. Is this the right length or still too long? Maybe you'd like it to be longer? I find it fascinating but I'm not sure anyone else will....
If nothing else I hope it inspires you to start your own sewing circle, all it takes is two!
Please leave comments if this is something you would like to see more of? I can easily make it another weekly addition to briansews if I get a good response.
