Hi everyone! I am also one of the lurkers and have now joined Sew Retro! I am very excited.
My name is Sofie and I live in Brisbane, Australia. It is winter here at the moment but not your average cold spot… we have a low of 4 degrees celsius tonight, but our next 5 days are about 21 degrees celsius with beautiful sunshine.
I have been sewing for a while, but come back to it the last 4 or so years. I have recently started a blog and yet I am really not savvy in the electronic media! I’d love you to have a look as one of the reasons I have joined Sew Retro was to get some help. It recently occurred to me that I didn’t have to buy patterns full price (which in Australia is way too much – no $1 days here) but that I could buy them at the second hand shops. So I have done the last few months and got some really great things. Here’s the help part: I recently found this amazing pattern (how cute is it!) and I want to know if anyone has any information on the pattern makers … they are a Brisbane company (which is a great surprise). More information on my blog in my very first post in May www.sewdarntired.blogspot.com/.
I’ve also got plans for some giveaways …..when I get 50 followers I will have some super cool 50’s sunglasses to giveaway… more than one pair hopefully and I’ll send them anywhere in the world!
I hope you get a chance to have a look..
