Wednesday Weekly #75

Hi, Makers! Apologies for the late Wednesday Weekly, I was away on a little work retreat for the last few days so I am playing catch up on blog-related things. We had a great stay on Saltspring island here in BC. Check out this video I shot at the top of the mountain we climbed yesterday! I am so blessed to live in the Pacific North West, is is just such a gorgeous place. I hope you are all having a great week, too! Let’s dive into what is happening in the indie sewing world, shall we?
