Dressmaker's Window At The Old Art Room

This window at The Old Art Room Swaffham, 
is inspired by the Dressmaker who has just left to 
go and make herself a cup of tea.
The window is filled with fresh, pastel, vintage fabrics and quilts.
Her sewing machine, dressmaker's dummy, patterns, magazines and storage. 
We teach dressmaking on a Tuesday or Thursday 
and have some costume Fridays:)
The 10 week Creative Textile Course and other workshops 
are available look to the tabs above:)

The sewing machine is a lovely 1950's 'Jones' blue sewing, don't you just love vintage.
Some of the magazines for inspiration are 1950's Vogue.
The fabric on the machine is a quilt in progress, real icecream colours.
Lots of quilts made and inspiration in the studio.

Sewing Storage, a suitcase renovated by Caroline.
