Why pin tack &sew?

Good preparation is the key to success, by taking the time to plan and prepare you will actually save a lot of time and stress.

I have been making clothes since my early teens. It has allowed me  to wear clothes that are unique and individual.  I believe what you wear says something about who you are, choosing bold colours, styles and  textures all go a long way to help create that personal  style.

My passion for sewing continues today. I have been teaching pattern cutting and dressmaking  for over 15 years. I love creating my own patterns but I’m also happy to use a commercial pattern and adapt that to my personal  style and shape.

Refashioning existing clothes and making something new is a great  way of saving money, yet having something   truly unique.

Soft furnishings is also something I truly enjoy. The satisfaction of making something for the home  is so gratifying .I have created beautiful window treatments, cushions for my home.

I plan to share my ideas and experiences as i know there  are many like-minded people who share the same passion as i do.
