Although I originally trained in garment construction and pattern making 20+ years ago, I got a little side-tracked along the way... I became a palaeontologist/biogeochemist and now after years in the lab, lecturing and conferences...I'm loving the processes of reinventing my apprecitation for fabrics, patterns and learning new sewing skills. At home, sewing is my favourite science...and it's often more comfortable and prettier ;)
