I originally planned to be an English teacher but after graduating my life took a completely different path. Although I still love mentoring and helping people I never did become a teacher but I have had a very varied and rewarding ing career. Two years ago I decided to take early retirement and follow my first passion which has always been sewing and making things. I set up selling on line a year and a half ago and now sell my items on two websites.
I make homeware, notebook covers and accessories from original vintage fabrics and upcycled forgotten and unloved textiles dating from the 1950s onwards.
