Nearly time for the launch show on Saturday. Lots of launch bundles packed and ready to go, but still working on some samples.
I mentioned over on social media that the show is also an anniversary of sorts. 10 years ago I made my first appearance on craft tv. It lasted a whole of 15 minutes! We sold out of the DVDs that we took, and the rest of the show was dedicated to a sewing machine. I was very lucky that Debbie Shore was my first presenter, she made it very easy for me!
Before that, I was working to commissions, researching, teaching and demonstrating the work of the 15th century silkwoman at re-enactments. There was a very small group of us - before us, no one demonstrated silkwomen, and only a very few had even heard of them - now there are quite a few young woman doing this. That's really nice.
But I never thought, in a million years that anyone beyond the living history / costume crown would ever be interested in learning these things - so thank you all!
