Seeing Tula Pink

What a privilege to meet the super talented Tula Pink last month.  A small group of us Tula fans decided to travel to the Gold Coast to meet and greet Trunk Show and lecture.  Such an inspiration!

So happy to have met Tula Pink and be inspired by her talent.  Can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

Stitching Leather with Lindsey Rae

 It was such a pleasure to have Lindsey Rae of Sew To Grow do a Leather workshop here at Kimz in May.  We will definitely repeat this workshop with many more ladies wanting to learn how to sew with leather.  Lindsey is such an amazing tutor and all of our ladies had a wonderful time and went home with a fantastic Urban Outlook tote.

Teflon feet help when stitching with leather as the metal from standard feet can stick.  Also pop in your machine a leather needle so it pierce the leather with its chisel tip.

Danielle loves making bags.

Here is May and Judith sporting their new totes.
