My love for sewing goes back a long way to when I was little and my mum and nana used to make clothes for me. They taught me how sew, paint, craft and I love to share and pass on my own sewing skills and help create some beautiful and unique things.
Although I make lots of things for myself and can make to order, I love to share my passion and love for sewing with others and am offering 1-1 or small groups.
Times and Dates to suit.
