Taking my pieces to the RUNWAY!: You are invited!

 

IMG_20170423_132909_821

No…….. I am not taking my pieces to Pearson airport … hahah. That would be dangerous now wouldn’t it.:)

Instead I have an amazing opportunity to showcase my summer pieces two months from to day in a arts and entertainment showcase highlighting local and underground talent in Toronto. Save that date if you are in Toronto: June 23rd, 7pm. Details below in the link.

Excited, nervous and driven. Possibilities, possibilities and more possibilities. But also fun and more fun. I have been planning since January end after my application was accepted. So now I am in sew mode and making those pieces and working with my amazing friends who are volunteering there time to be models on this special occasion.

My friends and family have been very supportive and have come along side me so far in many ways as I prepare for this event. Whether they are the show music director, volunteer models, back stage help, selling at my booth, fabric store runs, brainstorming ideas or just offering encouragement and support. They have been amazing, near and far!

As part of my participation in this event I am required to sell tickets via a guest list that will be created under my name as an artist. Tickets are $20. and can only be purchased online!

Here is the link if you are interested in supporting me in this event: Please ensure before you purchase that under selected artist is Amshinaapparel!

Thank you all in advance. I look forward to seeing you there as well as sharing the next two months of adventure sewing and preparations with you!

Stay tuned!

Thinking Spring thoughts… and Sewing..!

Hi Everyone!

Belated Easter greetings. I Trust you all had an amazing time with your family or however you chose to spend it. 🙂

It’s been a world wind of activities as usual. 🙂 A little sewing there, a little sewing here, a little reading here, a lot of grad school assignments there, a little of family here and life all together there.. lol.. You guys get the wave of events. 🙂

It’s a new season though! This causes me to reflect on the way forward and where I am at. Spring brings that happy and joyful feeling  about sunshine and flowers but also possibilities. Like the budding of the trees and roses, I am feeling the possibilities. Grad school has been crazy these past months. Assignments after assignments. I sewed in between.. but not as much or how I wanted to. 😦

I finally got a chance to do some creative sewing! Yayyy!!!! I was sewing in between… so it wasn’t complete withdrawal.hahaha. You know me, I make it happen! I am more referring to the creative moments where I can be present mentally and enjoy the process of sewing and creating a beautiful piece. So over Easter I did three pieces on Good Friday! I had my own self drafted patterns already and just had a creative moment.
I thoroughly enjoyed the process but also the finished looks.

The chronicles continue… just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew, sew, sewwwwwwwww!!!

Getting Organized and my first make!

I think the ambitious sewing at the end of 2016 had me a bit stunned at the start of 2017😊. I mean, even my sewing machine sounds different! It was a homestretch strong finish I must say.

Starting off 2017 after taking some time to reflect and look ahead I am now getting into the swing of things.

-So far I have completed one alteration and a high neck top.

-I was also able to complete my sewing room organization a few weekends ago! I feel great about this in particular! For the most part everything has a home.This will help my flow for the months ahead! Here is a sneak!

After successfully completing the above I felt it was time to make my first memade for myself. I don’t know if you guys realise the trend but my personal pieces are spur of the moment. Literally I was talking to my mom on facetime and the next thing I was sewing this shift dress. I tweaked a current self drafted pattern to create the look.

I did make this with the purpose of wearing it the next day, so I was in it! Yayyyyyy😍😍😍

The sewing bug is back!  I have a few items ready to go for this week! Woot woot!!

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew sew sew sewwwwwwww!

Happy Monday, 

Happy  New year!

Back to blogging! It’s been a great few weeks of being recharged and inspired. I finished 2016 strong and wanted to ensure I started the year off right by taking some time to reflect and be inspired from the inside. I am excited for the good things that will happen this year in my sewing and business! I can feel it!  

Started off my first week back on social media sharing about the four words my brand represents. Giving focus to the vision and working towards that! Check out on Instagram. http://www.instagram.com/amshina

Wishing you an awesome week ahead! Stay tune. The sewing chronicles continue…..just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew sew sewwwwwwww!

Taking the first few weeks in the new year to reflect on things, to build up myself spiritual in preparation for the journey ahead in 2017! There is no better time to rejuvenate and build yourself up spiritually than at the start of a new year.
