WordPress let me know that this blog is 4 years old already!
Time flies when you are having fun and working hard, that’s for sure.
To celebrate the fact that you are all still reading about my makes and my adventures, I’m giving away a copy of my newest release, Sewing Translated!
Last June I went a little bit of the radar, I was working 6 days a week of which 3 at HetPaleis. I was working in their small but hard working costume departement on the costumes for “The Hamilton Complex”. A play with 13 13-year old girls.
You can watch the play now at HetPaleis.

The last couple of months, I’ve learned a lot of things online. I’d like to share a couple of those with you. Maybe they can help you too.
Can I have a big cheer? Sewing Translated is finally here! I started working on this project in January of 2015, so it’s been in the making for a while!
What is Sewing Translated?
Sewing Translated is your dictionary for all things Sewing! Eventually, it will become a series of e-books, but its first volume: Fabrics is out now!

There’s an English version, with an English introduction & all the English terms in your table of contents for easy searching.
There’s also a Dutch version, with a Dutch introduction & all the Dutch terms in your table of contents and…
There’s a French version, with a French introduction & all the French terms in your table of contents.
Why did I wrote Sewing Translated?
You all know that I love sewing and that I love teaching!
Since I started sewing, it has become an international affair, with a dynamic and encouraging global sewing community – connecting with each other both on and offline. Talking to other sewing fanatics, I started noticing that a particular type of question kept cropping up: how do you say stretch lace in Dutch? What’s the French for iron-on-interfacing? Having looked around unsuccessfully for a resource that would help figure out these sewing translation conundrums – and with Google translate not being much help when it comes to stitching terms – I decided it was time to bite the bullet and make one myself!
It’s the teacher in me, I can’t help myself!
I can’t wait to here from you!
