A new start

Greetings, it's been a while hasn't it? 

I fell off the blogging bandwagon when I was having a tough time with life and never really got back on board, thanks to instagram. I feel the focus has changed from blogging to instagram which is usually just one photo per make, and I for one don't find that it's that effective for me and my sewing journey.

I find myself sucked into a world of sewing via social media, looking at fabric, patterns, searching for reviews, without actually doing any sewing, and that isn't a hobby is it? In order to change that, I am going to try and limit social media time, tidy up my sewing area, and keep a project out, and do what I can with the free time I get. 

I am also going to think about what I need in my wardrobe, rather than get excited about the latest indie release that I *must* purchase. I have an excessive amount of fabric and patterns and I am not ashamed of it, in fact, I get disappointed in it when I meet someone else with a larger stash than mine! Silly but true. I am going to shop from it this year, and use the beautiful fabric I have. It's not to say I won't buy more fabric throughout the year, but I do want to wear some of the fabric instead of storing it in a box. 

So I'll be blogging again, haphazardly and mainly using this platform to record my makes as my brain is mush these days. 

Happy sewing!

Frocktails 2016

Well hello!

Life has certainly been interesting since the August frocktails and it's taken me a while to focus on the next event. 

So here are the details for the next Frocktails....You have spoken, and I have listened, so a summer Frocktails it will be! Don't stress if you don't like the heat, a winter event will also be held. 

Date: 16th of January, 2016
Time: 6pm 
Venue: Collins quarter 
Cost: TBA 

We're sticking to the cocktail and canapé format, with a slight bit of tweaking due to the feedback we received eg for the last event, more food and less alcohol. 

Tickets will be sold through the Sew Squirrel store in a first come, first served basis. There will be plenty of tickets available, and lots of publicity (blog, Instagram) on when tickets will be released. 

In the coming weeks we will be releasing more information such as FQA, ticketing and maybe I'll finally get around to recapping the August Frocktails!

One woman is not an island, so for the 2016 event, I have thankfully received offers of help! 
My main ladies are Renay and Libby, @windingbobbin and @liblib for all the Instagram lovers out there. We have more helpers, and will be shouting out love and thanks to them as the planning goes on.
I will also be sending out all the information on @melbournefrocktails account so you might like to follow it! 

Thanks for reading,
