I learned to sew from my mum when I was a teenager. Somehow I drifted away from it for many years when life got busy. Having recently taken early retirement from music teaching, I have returned with renewed enthusiasm and take lots of classes both on Craftsy and with a wonderful local teacher.

Craftsy Member since July 2012
