2016 Direction for Heathers Sewing Room

Last year I did really well in finishing a lot of UFO projects which was one of my goals with my return to Singapore to live. As the year ended I thought hard about where my creative life should be heading. I have always been involved with sewing as I came from a family where sewing and creating items with your hands was a part of daily living. I really enjoyed being involved in the clothing industry as a career because I love fabric, colour and designing, therefore this was an area I wanted to be more involved in. 

In order to work in Singapore I needed to register a business so I achieved this before the Christmas break. After spending time in New Zealand I have been able to return and start planning my sewing class to teach people the art of sewing, hoping they will experience the joy I have had over the years of being able to design and sew my own clothes.

Over the last week I have put together some projects which work well for people wanting to learn to sew. 

Now I am onto setting up my sewing room with sewing machines and a cutting table, therefore I feel like I am nearly there for the opening of my business.

Have a great week.

  5. Heather...I love how you adapted the blue collection. I was lead to your blog thru a google search of this quilt. I love your birds and the fact that your tree covers the inside area. Please check out my version of this quilt at Applique Paintbox at I also adapted the pattern in several ways and I very much like how it turned out. I love yours also.
