I had a lovely talk with my friend Susi today and a chance remark she made when we were discussing my reluctance to machine stitch has given me an idea to develop a new piece. We were discussing that Susi finds it really easy to free machine but she didn’t know how she would feel if she was making seams in folds as I am doing, (and this is the exciting bit) unless she was doing very long seams. !!!
I am going to make a very long stitched seam by machine (say 3m long) in a narrow piece of cloth and record it to see what happens.
I have to admit that the piece I am stitching on the machine at the moment with turban cloth isn’t looking too bad at all – I like the repetitive nature of the stitch. Thanks Susi

  1. I always gain so much from our discussions about practice.
    Fascinated to know how the long seam stitching goes… can’t wait to hear more about it! I wonder if the physical length / time will allow for more flow and rhythm for you? Will watch this space!
