Why blog?

The first sewing blog I’ve opened was called Couture Charades and never really saw the light of day.

I don’t particularly feel the sewing community needs another blog, but then something happened and I realised I need the sewing community and blogging seems to be one of it’s constitutive elements…perhaps even more so than a sewing machine!

So here I am, sharing my thoughts with a vast, faceless and silent audience. I can’t wait to put you all in focus – know what you like, know what brought you here.

I want to tell you more of the something that happened (it was incredibly fun!), but a few thoughts need to fall into place in my head first so I’m going to leave you with a poem. About sewing of course. I’d love to hear your thoughts.



Here are old things:
Fraying edges,
Ravelling threads;
And here are scraps of new goods,
Needles and thread,
An expectant thimble,
A pair of silver-toothed scissors.
Thimble on a finger,
New thread through an eye;
Needle, do not linger,
Hurry as you ply.
If you ever would be through
Hurry, scurry, fly!
Here are patches,
Felled edges,
Darned threads,
Strengthening old utility,
Pending the coming of the new.
Yes, I have been mending …
But also,
I have been enacting
A little travesty on life.

  1. Ah, reading sewing blogs can seem like a full time job sometimes but they’re more compelling when you’ve met the blogger! Welcome to blogosphere Giorgia. I look forward to seeing what you make and keeping in touch this way. Mxx
