Granny to seven darling children. Mother to four not so darling young adults!mmm. I love to sew, and enjoy creating magazines. I have a stash of fabric so high that my friends think it will take me all my life to use it up! So here I am, showcasing My Making journey. Welcome, and come on into my world.

Mini Knicker Course

This Morning I taught my class of ladies how to make a pair of Knickers. Always a fun and popular little course.
These were the demo pair I made. Although I didn't have any pretty knicker elastic to use. 
In the afternoon we had a few ladies looking for remnants, and then a one to one lesson with another lady.
All in all a good day. 
Yesterday I had a meeting with a Fabric Sales Man, and have ordered £500 worth of fabrics, by the bolt, to sell in the shop. So I need to work on my website so I can also sell on line.

The Workshop

At Mooloo's shop, I am lucky to have three rooms. All one ontop of the other, however many people only see the ground floor where I work most of the time. 
But if you join me for a sewing lesson then you come to the top floor, where you will find my favourite place, the workshop. Here is where my other machines are, where my pupils, young and old come to improve their sewing skills. 
Where I keep some of my fabric stash, and escape to do the bigger jobs. 
It is quite different from when I started last Autumn!

Sewing Patterns

Well Mooloo's is evolving.
In September it was me, one desk and lots of ambition.
Now it is me, A part time reception/assistant, two part time sewing ladies.
Two desks, three filing cabinets full of sewing patterns, and a workshop full of beautiful remnants and about 8 sewing machines and 2 overlockers. Oh and a floor full of Nearly New Clothing for everyone!

1000th Alteration!

Friday the 15th May, 2015 saw the 1000th alteration come through my shop doors!
I can't believe how many jobs I have done in the last 8.1/2 months!
To celebrate such a milestone my customer received a certificate and a bottle of sparkly wine, and a free alteration.
