As seen on TV!

I made my TV debut last week on the very first episode of Craft Daily TV!

If you caught it you would have found me instructing you on how to make a simple no-pattern gathered skirt. Part two airs today at 10:30am UK time and can be viewed on Sky channel 192 or Freesat channel 402 as well as being streamed live on the Craft Daily TV website at the same time.

There were some great beginners crochet tips last week, along with a fab introduction to english paper piecing hexagons from Elizabeth Betts. Expect more exciting craft tutorials this week too. If you miss the show it is repeated again on Thursday evenings at 7pm.

I had a great time last week at the launch party for the show, wearing my new Tula Pink Prince Charming Emery dress which I had made the weekend before during my sewing retreat at a gorgeous cottage deep in the Devonshire countryside, 3 days of eating, sewing, sleeping and a lot of laughter! Here is a classic bathroom mirror selfie, just for you my lovely readers! (you can see how I feel about the selfie from that comical look on my face, born 20 years too late to grasp the automatic reflex to pout and press a button at the same time without looking stupid!)


Some lovely people even tweeted to let me know they have seen me on the big screen at the Knitting and Stitching show at Ally Pally this weekend. Needless to say I am investigating bodyguards already for fear I will be mobbed at sewing events. Chuckle.


I am really grateful to FW Media for the opportunity to be a part of this exciting new venture, it was such a blast to work on. Teaching is something I am so passionate about, I love being able to pass on my knowledge to others and ignite that spark of excitement when they realise they can do it, and they love it! 

Speaking of teaching, I have a busy Autumn term of classes on the local quilt shop circuit underway already, it is such fun going out and seeing all the ladies! I also have a few more magazine commissions to work on, but the bulk are now done and dusted and awaiting publication. Which means soon I should have time for a new blog tutorial! I have had an idea up my sleeve for ages and I promise just as soon as I have time and a nice sunny day I will get that one on here for you all.

You are amazing! And I tried that pout and click selfie thing once and looked like the biggest fool going.

Oh yes I saw you and the second show. I picked up several tips from you and from the crochet section. A good addition to the TV. Pam
