The Slow Sew

 

We have been enjoying the sunshine both here and the other weekend down near Tenterden in Kent.

I was lucky enough to go with friends to a Mandy Pattullo workshop at the Sew Not Strawberry Jam Studio.

The day was such an inspiration. Lots of hand work and and wonderfully inspiring pieces from Mandy, as well as the just beautiful gardens surrounding the studio.

 

Take a look!

 

Stitchery worked on an old quilted piece:

I would really like to make one of these books. I had seen them on Mandy’s Blog, but seeing them in person inspired me to think about starting one:

The outside of the studio and some of the lovely garden:

I am working on a piece inspired by this one by Mandy:

And in the same vein, if you don’t already know, Mark Lipinski is starting a new (ad)venture, The Slow Sewing Blog.

 

If like me you love the process and the outcome  and enjoy the meditative process of hand work in your quilts, then look on the new Blog.

 

It will be exciting to see and hear what people think!

    Carolyn I applaud some of the concepts but all the ‘marketing’ etc makes me think they are still missing the point!

    Love the above! Interested to see where you are going with it…?

    Hi Carolyn, Anne and I were at Mandy’s workshop on the Saturday, what a shame we missed you. It was a brilliant day wasn’t it? Perhaps I’ll see you at Sandown tomorrow

    I love the lovely stitched pieces you’ve shown here and your deer piece is going to be a wonderful project. I do’t quite understand the book…
