Oh, I love sneak peaks! BurdaStyle are sharing a bit more info about the secret book project. Click through to the article and take a look at the behind the scenes photo album…I swear in photo 7 the black bag with the small circle of purple peaking through the window…that’s got to be mine! If I squint extra hard I can see a french seam and maybe my name on that label…ok, maybe not my name, but that is definitely a french seam, I am convinced. I can hardly wait!
This month our Perth BurdaStyle Sewing Club celebrates 1 year of socially sewing together. It’s been a really fun year and we have gotten up to a lot of mischief and fun and made a whole pile of wonderful new friends. Sandra and I had no idea how big this club would eventually get and new members are contacting us all the time. Perth is full of talented sewers and I feel our ‘little’ club has plugged a large gap in the social sewing group scene.
The next 12 months are planned to be just as exciting with as many fresh new ideas as we have members! First up in September we have a thrift store challenge and then we’ll be getting into Christmas mode with a few fun stocking-stuffer sew-alongs. If you’ve heard of us and been a bit shy, or reading about us for the first time you are more than welcome to come along and meet us. Why don’t you pop on over to our ning site to request membership (we have to control the spammers, but you’ll get approved almost instantly) then you can see what we’ve been up to over the last year and jump right in and participate. You’ll get invites to new meets and enjoy all the fun that our social sewing group has to offer, I promise you’ll enjoy yourself, get excellent sewing help and be inspired to sew more. We look forward to meeting you soon xx
Here are a few pics from our fun day:

While at Saturday in Design I was invited to a cocktail function in the evening at Zambesi where InterfaceFLOR had set up their entry for the SiD competition called THE PROJECT. Designers, architects and participating showrooms collaborate to enter and this years keyword was MOTION. The InterfaceFLOR entry was called Dekonstrukt/Rekonstrukt. Designers were encouraged to dekonstrukt then rekonstrukt InterfaceFLOR carpet materials into unique art installations. I use a lot of InterfaceFLOR product in my jobs and they are always keen to push how designers think about the flooring and the floor (The 5th Wall) and support any crazy design idea I might have. Their entry was really inline with their company thinking and I loved all the different “emotions” each designer produced. I took a few photos to share because as you will see they are quite relevant.
FYI: InterfaceFLOR won the competition. See more entires, extra photos, entrants names and general infomation on InterfaceFLORs The 5th Wall Blog.
