I love choosing and collecting fabrics and always consider the environment when making my choices. Re and Up cycling is such fun and the way to go these days. I find I can make pretty much anything I like out of what I’ve collected. My grand daughter Edie here, is cuddling a doll I made for my daughter Jessica’s baby massage classes. And here’s my grandson showing off a squid costume I made for his 5th birthday.

Have you always wanted to be able to mend or alter your own clothes? Do you want to learn how to cut your own patterns or design your own fancy dress costume? Come and join in on one of my SEWING CLASSES….Choose what you want to sew and I will tutor you at your level.


 HISTORICAL EVENTS

The Re-Fashion Show in the summer of 2013 at the Royal Seven Stars in Totnes was a great success!

As the theme of the show was around the ideas of re-use, re-cycle and up-cycle - I designed a Baroque style dress and made it out of pieces of remnant. I also set myself a challenge to make a dress out of finds from all the charity shops in Totnes. A spangly purple and silver party dress was the result! My lovely sister Josephine did my creations proud on the cat walk.

Thanks to Amy Wilde who very kindly took the photos!
