Happy 2024!

As my business New Year starts in September, I tend to make plans and new beginnings at that time. I do love an academic diary too! So rolling over into 2024 hasn't really made a whole load of difference to me.

I did have some great books for Christmas including Noriko Misumi's Joyful Mending, beautifully illustrated and so well put together, I'd highly recommend for any menders out there. Also, Father Christmas remembered I wanted a Speedweve loom so I've been getting acquainted with that too.

Obviously there was no new clothing or footwear, I'm on year eight of No New Clothes for a Year and haven't looked back since. I was never a fan of the High Street and always loathed shopping for clothes, especially trying them on as they never seemed to be the perfect fit. That's why I began making my own things in my teens and shopping around charity shops and jumble sales.

With hundreds of vintage garments in stock I hardly need look further than those rails if ever I need a different garment anyway. Vintage can really change your personal style, sending you off in so many directions depending on which era you fancy. Having lived through it, I am still a fan of eighties fashion as I love the colour and the exaggerated shapes. I do love a seventies boho maxi dress too and am just getting into sixties dagger collar shirts - layering a tank top makes it a more current look.

If you see something you like the look of in my vintage stock or you own a favoured piece but it's not quite your size, remember that I can alter. I will also take existing clothing and refashion into something completely different. Keeping clothing out of landfill is not only a mission, it's a passion so do get in touch if you have a project in mind.

In fact, do get in touch if you have any questions whether it's about my vintage stock - I do find pieces on request, or mending matters and if you have a refashioning project, please let me know.

Happy New Year!
