Why Do I Teach Sewing?

I love teaching people to sew, I’m a bargain hunter, design lover, incurable DIY-er, mother of one and grandmother of one!

I learn to sew at a very young age and it is a skill I love to share with others.

I live in beautiful Cornwall with my partner, a dog and 2 cats! Life could never be called boring!

Why I do what I do!

Lots of reasons! To bring women together — women talk while they sew —groups become friends.

Women support and listen to each other, and learn while sewing. It is therapeutic, and a hobby you can share at any age.

Creating a support network to help each other, so no one will feel lonely, or feel that no one listens to them. We can laugh at our mistakes – learn from them. Pass on the knowledge to our children and grandchildren.

It’s a life skill you know! It truly makes us appreciate the work that goes into making good clothes that last, AND having things that fit properly!

Being able to look around your home and say, “I made those cushions/curtains/soft furnishings.”

I am contributing to the environment by refashioning/upcycling fabrics. 

Why not join us?

I have a simple dream: transforming the drab into fab with an arsenal of needles and thread. I often shop in charity shops, car boot sales, flea markets and antique stores with an eye for repurposing the objects I find.

I’ve made clothes and soft furnishings for people since I was a young child, starting off with dressing my dolls!

My Mum taught me to sew and I also had some lessons at school but mostly it’s been a case of passion joined with practice.

See you soon.

An abrupt change of events found us living on a narrowboat near Tring. It was during a recession & my online business was failing. Since I’ve been self employed since 1985 I am inclined to think that I’m unemployable, too used to doing things my way!  A chance...

Clearing my mother’s house

My mother has recently had to go into a care home at the age of 98: she was living alone and kept forgetting to eat and drink. She wouldn’t have anyone live with her, so it was the only option. But this isn’t a sad story – it was really touching to see the things she...
