I have been sewing for most of my life. Lucky for me, my mother owned a sewing machine and I started altering my own clothes as a teenager. When I graduated, my parents bought me my own sewing machine and I caught the quilting 'bug'. With two very talented grandmothers before me who held such talents as knitting, sewing and painting, as well as grandfathers who were master craftsmen it's no surprise I was destined to create! I can remember intently watching Granny at the sewing machine, and holding Mum's yarn for her, feeling so special to be part of the process. They passed onto me the love of a handmade item.View all patterns by designer (55) »
