The Great British Sewing Bee is on the television to inspire you all, so I hope you will think about summer sewing in Suffolk.

I have just made some lovely short pyjamas for my grandsons using some fun fabric together with a blue sheet. Sheets and duvets are a great source of fabric as you often get a lot more for your money rather than buying it by the metre from a shop. The sheet that I used had been washed so the cotton is lovely and soft; perfect for sleepwear.

Gypsy style twirly skirts, bright stripey Bermuda shorts and cool summer dresses. Super summer cottons are available from local fabric shops in Sudbury, Eye, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Felixstowe and Hadleigh as well as online. The only problem will be making a choice. For yourself a summer skirt can be run up for far less than the big retailers charge and you can add 2 or 3 new items to your wardrobe.

A child’s outfit or a new skirt can be made in one of my bespoke, personal day classes with individual tuition from me, and you will have confidence to go home and do more.  All the things that you make can be made even more personal with the addition of an appliqué design, which I can show you how to do.

If you don’t want to sew clothes, summer sewing in Suffolk can also mean making summer soft furnishings for your garden; for example, cushions, table cloths and bunting.  If you are hoping to spend time sitting outside and the chair cushions need a facelift now could be the time to think of garden summer sewing in Suffolk. Look out for ends of rolls. There are bargains to be had, and mix and match to inject some fresh colour into your outdoor Suffolk summer. Tea on the terrace in Lavenham, coffee and cake in Woodbridge, or a Barbeque in Bungay, outside is where we want to be and simple and quick to sew cushions and tablecloths make the picture perfect.
