For a couple of months now each time i log onto the internet i sit for hours reading blogs of women who sew and they are soo good at it. Plus they make it look so easy and when it really isnt!
I have enquired if we had any sewing classes in Oman, and i did find a few but they are really far from where i live 😦 . The good thing about me is that when i want something, i want something i will not rest until i get it, so i sent sms to all my friends and family asking if they knew someone or somewhere where i could learn how to sew. And i got several “no sorry, i dont know anyone” but in the end i got what i was looking for. Apparently there is a woman called Sophia who teaches how to sew and she lives like 10 mins from home *YAY* 😆 She must be good because 4 people have referred me to her and when i called her up she said that she is fully booked until December!! I know its a long wait but i signed up as i have no other choice.
Anyhow I know there are lots of sites that offer you “Sewing basics” but i need to phsyically be taught. However, if you are the type that dont mind learning that way check out JCaroline’s Where to begin? She really breaks it down for you and covers all the imporant points.
For a little inspiration check out my crafty mamas which i will keep updating with more blogs.
EDITED TO ADD: Called up Safia and she informed me that i will be starting in December date to be confirmed by the end of the month. I am soooo excited! I cant wait…
