I was born and raised in the local village of Worstead, Norfolk and have been sewing since the age of five. My first school teacher and an aunt, who taught me to make dolls clothes from recycled garments, are the two people who greatly inspired my life-long love of needlework.
As years went by I progressed to making adult clothes, learnt to hand smock for my children in the 80s, ran my own business making bespoke wedding dresses and much, much more . .
Now that the youngest of my grandchildren has started school my ‘grandma duties’ are no longer required so I have decided to return to doing what I love most and have started working with needle & fabrics again.
So here I am 🙂
