    Very clever. I like your choice of fabrics. This could have other uses too, depending on the fabrics and width of pockets, e.g., holder for favorite serving silverware, crochet hooks, etc. Thanks.

    Hello Beth,

    I have written to you previously regarding using your material on the Australian Sewing Guild facebook page. This received a highly positive response.

    Your latest series of video tutorials is excellent, and targets the demographic of home sewer whom we, the ASG, are trying to attract to our Guild.

    Would you consent to the ASG including these tutorials on our blog? https://www.facebook.com/AustralianSewingGuildInc/ ? These articles would be appropriately credited to you.

    In my role of Industry Partner Liaison, and Board Member, I would like to introduce you to our 2000 members. Could you kindly provide me with an editorial and photo so we can submit an article in our newsletter and facebook?

    I can put a link to your website so our members can read your articles at their leisure

    Regards, Jude Ewen, Industry Partner Liaison Australian Sewing Guild Inc. aussew.org.au
