Clothing and textiles

I am a 60 year young grandmother who loves life and all that comes with it!

I am currently employed at a local cafe, and when not there I am usually sewing or preparing delicious raw food.

I first began sewing when I was about 12 or 13 years old. Coming from a large family, I wore a lot of "hand-me-downs". I soon learnt that I could redesign the pre-loved clothing and have something 'new' to wear.

As a teenager I worked in clothing factories and became a qualified trouser machinist. These days sewing is my hobby and I do it whenever I want to forget about everything else that is going on in my life.

I love to create colourful, fun designs for the young and the young at heart.  For me, sewing and designing is very relaxing and enjoyable. I love it and love to wear my own creations.
