Thankfully I had some generous people to help me sew. In the slideshow above, you can see the amazing things they made:

Daphne Parthoens from Octopurse made her beautiful frame pouches and clutches with the linen blend fabric.

Deborah Moebes made her new Deep Pockets Tunic using the Sitting Geese and Broken Plaid double gauze. Look for the pattern soon!

Christine Haynes made the Shift Dress in Broken Plaid and Quarter Circles double gauze. The pattern will be in her forthcoming book from Skirts and Dresses for First-Time Sewers from Barron’s Press.

Nancy Purvis made the beautiful patchwork pieces in the embroidery hoop and pillow using the cotton and linen blends. Look for exciting things from Nancy soon!
