Sew sick of dreary recession news?
When the going gets tough, the tough get sewing. This is the perfect time to rediscover your inner seamstress. Been a while since you even hemmed a pant leg? Never mind. If you need inspiration or even a little instruction, check out the CreativFestival which runs from April 24-26 at the International Centre. This two-day event includes seminars, workshops and demonstrations of the latest sewing, knitting, crocheting, scrap booking, paper crafting, beading and quilting techniques. My suggestion for a don’t miss event? The highly talented Dilys Tong from Sew Be It Studio, who will be there to show recessionistas how to create runway-worthy fashion without having to sell a kidney to pay for it. "We call it chic-o-nomics," says Tong!
