Tuesday 28 March 2023: ‘Sewing is an act of emotional repair’ is a term Rosie Perl discusses towards the end of this podcast. This is a term quoted from Louise Bourgeois.
She’s also now learning to adjust patterns to suit her body shape with her good friend Donna.
You can hear the joys that sewing brings Rosie in this podcast.
Her husband is now hooked on restoring pre-loved vintage sewing machines too.
Lots of great stories from a wonderful textile artist and Sydney local.
Below is an image of the Elna sewing machine Rosie mentioned that her husband has found and restored.
