Welcome to Couturesmith!
Some of my favourite childhood memories involve spending hours in my Oma’s attic, rummaging through trunks of 1940 and 1950′s era clothing – most of them made by Oma- trying them on, and putting on skits for any relative who might be around and crazy enough to want to sit through just one more nonsensical production.
Fast forward to today, and surprisingly enough my life hasn’t changed much!
Clothing, sewing, and being involved in theatre are part of the fabric of my everyday life. From Wedding dresses for my daughters, to leggings for my grandchildren to fixing coveralls for the barn, as long as it involves fabric and thread I am content. Theatrewise I am as happy backstage, organizing props and costumes as I am onstage- and if onstage I likely made my costume too!
So that is what I blog about. Sewing. Fabric. Sewing outings. There may be occasion post on topics surrounding farming, children, grandchildren and current events, but I do try to keep on topic most of the time!
Please leave me a comment! I always enjoy them. If you want to talk to me email to email, contact me at c.couturesmith(at) gmail (dot) com.
