Fabric of Life

Everything has to start somewhere.  When it comes to clothing, without fabric we have very little.  Having questioned this I began to ask myself what is fabric – what is classified as fabric?  Is fur fabric?  Is paper fabric?

“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely – and this is precisely what I shall do.  I was fortunate enough to be given a book for my recent birthday by a dear friend –  ‘The Golden Thread’ by Kassia St Clair.  The book is all about how fabric changed history and seems a good a starting point as any.

So my journey begins..

Sat in bed thinking it is four weeks until christmas and that maybe I should try for that super organised christmas with beautiful decorations.  Now looked at the clock and realising if I don’t get out of bed I will be late for work!
