Toby has been asking me for over a year to teach him to sew... I've been slightly rubbish and put him off. I've got two machines and I always said he could start no the domestic machine that works at normal speed. Last week I was thread drawing at the Golden Lane Estate Christmas fair and when put on the spot by him I couldn't say no and I had the faster semi industrial machine with me.
I thought I'd have to go through lots with him, turns out he's seen me so much he took to it like a duck to water.... I was hugely proud!
Toby age 9, very first attempt at thread drawing
