“My sewing machine is like my best friend – we spend a lot of time together.”
My style is…
“I’d say it’s modern, easy and fun. I love my garden, so I love to stitch flowers and anything with a garden theme.”
“My cupboards are full of fabrics. I can always find a fabric that suits a particular project. I have a huge variety of prints, ranging from country colours to soft and pretty patterns. When I buy new fabrics, I usually leave them on my desk for a while, to admire while I’m sewing.”
“I love having the day to potter in my sewing studio. I get so much enjoyment from that one room. It’s where all my ideas come to life.”
SEW USEFUL DESIGNS
“Most of my learning has been from trial and error and from sweet, like-minded friends sharing their knowledge with me.”
My style is…
“I would sum up my style as cute and innocent, with a touch of whimsy. I’m drawn to a ‘pretty’ palette and love to add pompoms, ruffles and polka-dots into the mix.”
“I love to rummage through my fabric scraps, as the further down the bin I go, the older the fabrics become and, with them, the memories of all those old projects I’ve made.”
Age of enlightenment!
“Becoming good at what you love takes time. One of the greatest gifts that maturity gives you (excuse me while I cough here!) is that you lighten up on yourself and allow yourself to make mistakes, so that you can grow and learn.”
