I have been on a years long break from this blog - there have been some sewing projects but not many. This year, 2019, I am hoping to update the few projects I have worked on, many without success, and document the projects I hope to achieve for this year. The Greater Bay Area Costumers Guild has some events that I want to attend as well as a goal to attend Dickens Fair at the end of the year. The the wicked results of time and gravity have not been kind, I need new costumes...nothing fits...it is not even a matter of nothing fitting well...there is no tight lacing that will help...so the machines must come alive to battle the effects of time! (The dramatics is a way overcome the reality that I've gotten chubby and can't zip, tie, or button anything up anymore...lol).
For those who are interested:
http://gbacg.org/ is the Guild address, they have a great "pattern review."
https://dickensfair.com/ if you are ever in the SF Bay area between Thanksgiving and Christmas it is a "must do once" -- if you come without children then you must try to score free "French Postcard" tickets, but be aware it is an adult only show.
https://www.norcalrenfaire.com/ then of course there is Faire. I have done some sewing for Faire and will update it here.
Looking forward to a New Year full of threads and thimbles, and being a child at heart...
