Compañeros de la vida


I sew everything on this lovely, metallic green Husqvarna from the fifties. I found it in a garbage room in the early nineties, complete with a handy suitcase, instruction book, needles, thread and all.

I’ve had it in for service once, otherwise just feed it some oil every now and then, and it keeps going.


It has a lot of decorative seams apart from the ones you need for different techniques.

The only thing it doesn’t do is overlock seams with cutting which is just as fine. Very few of my creations have been made without taking up some stitches at least once. Either because I make a mistake, or because the fit is bad, or because I change my mind over some design issue. The little cutter must be near at all times.Foto-0088


I don’t have a big cutting table, I do all the work on the floor. An ex partner once gave me these knee pads to use while I crawl around on the floor, and why I don’t use them every time, I don’t know- they’re wonderful!
