I went to a carboot sale this morning and came away with this beautiful sewing machine for £12!
It is a Winselmann Titan court-maker edition and even came with extra feet, bobbins and bits and bobs in the little side compartment.
Now i just need to figure out how to use it...
Will all be back to normal when I get back to Bournemouth and sort it out.
Going fabric shopping tomorrow, i can't wait to get it all sorted out and buy everything i need. Must remember buttons and threads this time.
I will then only have 2 complete days to cut out ALL my pattern pieces before getting back to the studio.
10am Monday 12th April - deadline for first completed and fully styled outfit.
Tues 13th April - Gail and Hilton Green going through portfolios
Thurs 15th and Fri 16th April - Hilton Green and Alex Brownless (Artsthread) working on Artsthread presentation. Kelly Allen available to help with portfolio selection.
Mon 26th April - professional photographer in to photograph most completed collections for GFW stands.
28th April - British Fashion Councils Graduate preview day
Thurs 29th April - GFW FINAL SELECTIONS with Lesley Goring and Anthony Bednall.
Kelly Allen available to help with portfolio selections.
Unfortunately, through a massive mistake on my behalf (I forgot in my rushing around like a headless chicken state, to buy buttons), I did not get a completed outfit finished in-time to have it entered to see if it could go forward into a competition to get it photographed by Rankin...better luck next time.
the deadline has been postponed so i now have until 10 am on monday the 12th april to get my first completed outfit with a fully styled model. This would have been ideal had I not left the beginnings of the outfit in the studio over the easter break whilst I am back home...great.
