St Clair Villa – Goulburn

Goulburn, New South Wales

#StClairVilla #Goulburn. From Needle & Thread to Machine: A Revolution in Domestic Clothing Manufacture. A really interesting exhibition of early Australian clothing, stitching, lace and sewing machines. Was shown through by a lovely gentleman who was able to teach me so much of the local history along with lots of really interesting information on the growth of the textile industry and the changes that purchasing sewing machines made to life in Australian homes. #sewing #sewinghistory #lace #applique #smoking #historicalclothing #sewingmachine #history #clothing

The Slow Clothing Project

Every day, we eat and we dress. We have become conscious of our food, it is time to become more conscious of our clothing.Tamara-making-1024x610

I love the Slow Clothing project instigated by Jane Milburn at Textile Beat textilebeat.com . The project is a social enterprise inspiring a creative approach to the way we dress, through slow clothing. ‘We believe in ethical, sustainable choices that don’t harm people or the planet. We want to know the story about where clothing comes from and we believe in care and repair, refashion and restyle of existing clothing using old-fashioned home-sewing skills.’

I have contributed to this project.  http://textilebeat.com/a-meditative-process-tamara-russell/
