I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! We had four fabulous days of sunshine and took the opportunity to paint the east wall of the house, but there was still time to trip to the beach:
Here I am wearing my blue 1969 Burda Dress, standing on 600 year old lava from the volcano in the background – Rangitoto Island! We walked the coast from Takapuna to Milford and back, one of my favourite walks in Auckland – and not just because of the cherry yoghurt ice creams we always buy from the cafe at the top end of the beach! The walk includes lots of rocky promontories like this interspersed with beaches, both big and small:
Enough scenery – let me tell you about the sewing and patternmaking classes I’m taking next term! There are four options:
- Sewing Machine Basics – for total beginners, to learn how to use your machine (or the machines provided)
- Level 1 Sewing – for beginners to fashion sewing, to learn how to use a commercial sewing pattern and basic garment assembly
- Level 2 Sewing – for those who want to learn more techniques and step up to the next level
- Patternmaking From a Garment you Love – I taught this class last term and it was such a success that we are now running two classes, and there are already very limited spaces so be in quick!
