This is me!

How did it all start?

People often ask me how long have you been sewing, so this is where it starts. Like many girls of my generation my Paternal Grandmother fueled my interest in all things fabric. My Grandfather painted and made rugs so there was plenty to learn from them both. It was very much a make do and mend household. My Nan was an avid Jumble sale stalker barging her way through with arms full of garments. So many of these items were stripped down or unravelled to be remade into something new. All the off cuts were made unto the brightly coloured rag rugs which covered the floor of their home.I still think of them every time I up- cycle!!
