When did you first start sewing and how did you learn?

Sept 2009 i started an adult education sewing course and felt was to limited so I started joining advance tailoring classes and studied pattern drafting . Practice and self learning it was a huge part of the process too.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

Cynthia Rowley Tulip Skirt 2512

Do you have any favourite pattern designers or celebrity sewers?

I love sewing Named, BY Hand London, Grainline and Victory patterns.

What's your sewing room like and how do you organize your stash?

Oscillate between a total mess and a very tidy space. its my spare bedroom and i cannot sew in a mess, so i tend to clear and organise it often. It offers lovely natural light where I sit by a window.

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to stitch along to?

I have a "sewing podcast list" on spottily but Im normally watching/ listening Brazilian Tv/music

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I enjoy embroidering and quilting.
