Been to hot to even look at my machines this week BUT I'm having a very VERY exciting delivery from @janomeuk today. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. There's going to be new machine spam... I apologize in advance ๐Ÿ˜†. Hope you're all having a positive day. My thoughts are still with London + Manchester. Also don't forget to check out account #makersforgrenfell to help support those affected by the fire. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜”โค๏ธ. Big hugs guys xxx

  • Here's a bit of waldo Spam. He's only allowed on the bed right before wash day, but he loves every minute of it. ๐Ÿ˜‚.

  • The awesome @portialawrie has set up a makers page for sewists to sell their stash to support those affected in the London high rise fire. I'm currently sorting my fabrics out to help and it would be awesome if you could do the same! Head over to @makersforgrenfell to find out more. Xxx.

  • The lovely @roodles_runique + @mrs.f_72 both asked me what I was doing yesterday and the answer was fabric shopping in Goldhawk road with the girls from @newcrafthouse, @elisalex, @clairesews, @thumbleninja and @sabrinakilpatrick. I bought some cotton that reminded me of @marillawalker, the striped cotton we all fell in love with, and some super strong power mesh. My trip on the tube was delayed by a 'fire' which I assumed was a small fire like the one in the tube I experienced back in April. I spent the day listening to the others talk about donating without understanding the true extent of the disaster. Only when I got home and read the news did I get the full scale of the awfulness of the situation. Hearing that the residents had pleased with officials and been ignored breaks me.  @portialawrie has expressed a wish for us to come together to help those left with the aftermath and I absolutely support her. Yet another day where I'm left feeling that this countries leaders are  failing its humans, but I know that the humans in the country won't fail to lead. I send hugs to you all this sunny Thursday and I look forward to spending some positive time with @jennibobtaylor later this evening. .
  • My weekends Birmingham fabric trip was definitely more about the social side, but I did purchase this viscose. It reminds me of us. The sewing community. All different but all together. Something that makes me happy everyday. No idea what this will be, but it will be something that makes me smile. .

  • If you're voting Tory today please stop and think why. Is it because you earn over ยฃ80,000 a year and don't want taxes to support benefit wasters? I'm one of those wasters, and the tax payers support has meant I was able to stay in my small flat when I was diagnosed and needed critical care. I'm now off benefit support and paying taxes. Without Employment And Support allowance I'd of been homeless and unmediated. A danger to myself and others. Is it because you don't care if the NHS gets privatized? Without affordable access to my medications (I already pay for them because mental health isn't seen as life threatening) I'll be back to being a danger to myself, unable to work and therefore not paying taxes. Millions like me are being pushed into desperate situations as their benefits are cut or taken away.  Real humans. Not statistics, or the scum the papers tell you I am. Our grandparents fought wars on foreign soil so that fascism didn't reach the shores of Britain. Don't let the papers lie to you about The Conservative being for middle class people 'like you'. They are ruining working and middle class peoples lives and only the extremely rich will benefit from their continued rape of our political system. Fight hate, fight lies, fight fascism and vote for the many. If you think Corbyn is a joke, ask yourself why? Did the Daily Mail tell you this? Did the independent tell you you'll never guess what Jeremy did next? Did the sun remind you that he's scruffy and rides a bike? No party is perfect but don't support one who has major leaders who are against gay rights, human rights and have cut funding to our most needed services in order for you to believe we need 'tighter internet laws' and 'the NHS is failing'. The Conservatives have failed you. Let's stop this together โค๏ธ .

Moneta party quarter finialists annonced!

WOW! What can I say? That was some party you guys made. I don’t think my fingers stayed still for more than a minute. I was blown away by every single garment and by the support you showed each other during the event. This is exactly why I plan community parties. From having people who have never sewn with jersey breaking out the double needle to more experienced seamstresses designing a hack that I’d never of dreamed was possible makes my heart sing. I particularly enjoyed the gathering of monetas in Dewsbury arranged by the inspiring Hila of Saturday night stitch whom clearly knows how to get a party started. She was joined by 9 ladies wearing monetas making it a proper moneta party fest.

Although you are all winners in my eyes, I have great pleasure in announcing that the 9 semi-finalist who win individual prizes from their sponsors as well as a pair Earnest and wright embroidery scissors.

 

Pilar_bear was voted in by the wonderful Guthrie and Ghani who fell in love with Pilar’s low back ballerina style dress and beautiful photo. Pilar lives in spain with her husband and toddler, and is the founder of Pilarbearpatternshare and also has a #sewingmama collaboration with @katerelton. She wins a ยฃ20 fabric voucher to spend at Guthrie and Ghani.

 

Pigeonwishes was chosen by Crafty sew and so for her gorgeous frill hack and party style. Meg is a Vlogger and has her own youtube channel and lives in London. She gets a ยฃ10 voucher to spend at Crafty sew and so, which as a self-proclaimed fabric addict won’t be too hard! We want to see a fabric haul vlog meg!

 

Dankajx’s clever roll neck hack caught fabworkmills eye and the flowers obviously sealed the deal.ย  Danka has a blog where she shares her lovely sewing and knitting, lives in Oxfordshire and enjoys cakes as much as me. She will be getting ยฃ20 credit to spend at Fabworksmill online, but a trip to the store up north is well worth it. Maybe she can be persuaded for another Hila party.

 

RosieJaneSews beautiful blue Moneta and pink accessories meant that Minerva crafts couldn’t resist her happy grin and also her sipsmith gin. Jane loves sewing on her new Janome machine and shares her lovely makes on Instagram. She will be getting her hands on a ยฃ50 jersey bundle from Minerva crafts and I can’t wait to see what she makes.

 

Amymore10 wowed Sew Essential with her dramatic black leatherette Moneta, which fabric came from Birmingham rag market. Amy has a Vlog channel where shares her beautiful makes with us sewists. She will be getting a pattern of her choice from Sew Essential and I hope she shares it on her vlog for us to see.

 

Cforcer’s blue lace beauty put her in the running when Faberwoods fell in love with her photo and use of fabric. Charlotte lives in the Midlands with her beautiful children, has a sewing blog, runs and also been known to rub shoulders with Rock legends in her spare time. She will receive a goodie box from Faberwoods and I’m super envious of this!

 

lasoffittadeighiri showed up to the party not only in a rocking Moneta but also to provide us with dance music! Girl Charlee could not resist. Manuela is a self-taught seamstress who lives in the woods in Italy with her husband. She is passionate about all things sewing which she shares on her blog. Girl Charlee will be sending her 3m of their fabric so we look forward to seeing it sewn up.

 

Sewvee always shows up to the party in style and for the second year running has made it into the final 9. Victoria lives in Bath (not in the bath) and is figuratively a walking rainbow. Her beautiful wax print dresses can be found on her blog as well as Instagram. Although Sewvee partied with the original party crew she didn’t get any prizes so I am super happy to hand over a ยฃ20 store credit from Adam ross for her to make awesome things this year.

 

_ym.sews_ braved the storm in her maxi Moneta hack and the Villiage Haberdashery approved of it’s floaty appearance and use of stripes. Yasmin lives in wales and packs in more sewing in a week than I manage in a month around her career as a doctor. She’s part o the Minerva blogger community and shares her makes there and on Instagram. She get’s to spend ยฃ25 at The Villiage Haberdashery!

Few! These lovely talented ladies pictures will now be sent off to Colette HQ who will decide who will be put to the public vote. We hope you will all continue to party and We send out Moneta hugs to you all.
