I began sewing a soft wool coat while I was teaching at Maiwa School of Textiles in the (northern) summer just past, free-cutting on the floor of the lovely apartment in which I was staying. Managed quite a bit of stitching in the evenings, but then (to my embarrassment) forgot about it once I was home again.

It wasn’t until I was emptying the suitcase for repacking that I recalled the coat. A couple of days of steady sewing later, it was ready for the dyepot. It seemed a good time to make a wee movie.
