I dream about seams, darts, gathers and just about everything to do with sewing clothes. To say that sewing has overtaken my life, is a bit of an under statement. Living my life as though it can all be delicately stitched together, to bring about a cohesive harmony in ones existence, is a bit of a sewers metaphorical nirvana, I KNOW! but still, I also find myself saying things like "well if the needle is blunt, change it!" and "All seams well that ends well" So there you have it, I am an optimistic seamstress, as my bobbin always is half full. This site is the outcome of my enthusiasm towards the craft of home sewing and wishing to share that with everyone who are also quick to jump out of bed in the early hours of the morning because of some sewing need, in one way or another.
I have worked as a Youth Life Skills Coach and have over 20 years experience in professional dressmaking with a fashion pattern cutting qualification, also set up and ran inner London sewing workshops for all members of the community and plan to start a brand new exciting sewing club. all are welcome!
