You might be a complete beginner to all things sewing, an absolute embroidery machine novice or never taken your PE Design Software out of the box! Or you might be looking to level up your sewing skills, advance your embroidery techniques or finally master your overlocker!

It doesn't matter if you're a complete beginner or a seasoned sewist - everyone is welcome!

I make & create too!


Proving that embroidery isn't just for old ladies!!

I'll be honest, I don't make as much as I'd like to, for myself. But, one of my goals for 2024 is to sew and embroider more for me!

I have lots of ideas and items on my "To Make" list (along with a huge mending / alterations pile!) so I'll be sharing what I've been up to in my weekly newsletter.
