I am a Management Consultant by day and a secret sewer by night! I’ve got a hectic schedule, but I decided that it’s really important to me to have a creative outlet (which is surprising given I was never artistic or creative at school!), so I make sure I find time to squeeze some sewing into the diary.
I’m based in Brixton, London, and love wandering around the fabric stalls in Brixton market and the amazing Simply Fabrics on Atlantic Road. It’s got to be a special occasion to get me all the way up to the famed Walthemstow Market that everyone else raves about… too much time out of my precious weekend!
Apart from hoarding patterns, my other favourite pastime is collecting links to free patterns. There’s so many out there that you can print at home now, and many of them have excellent instructions for the beginner too.
I want to share some of my experiences, encourage others to have a go at sewing, and hopefully meet some new friends along the way. So please do get in touch if you have any questions or comments, or if you’ve had a go at making anything. I’d love to hear from you.
