WELL HELLO THERE!
I have always been an entrepreneur and have set up various businesses including my own record label and a pop up/online shop called Gabberdashery where I sold brilliant British made crafts – from jewellery to clothes and art but now I have adopted that as my sewing brand name. I have changed my blog from being a DIY interiors blog (about doing up my flat and garden on a very low budget) to a sewing blog which has become a lot more prolific as I am sewing a LOT and I Iove being part of the sewing community.
My blog is a big part of my life – I really enjoy writing about and photographing my makes in the hope it will inspire people to make handmade clothes or try something different and I love being part of the sewing world – everyone is so friendly and supportive (very unlike the music world!) I love doing tutorials and showing how easy it is to create pieces for your wardrobe and have learnt so much from other blogs that have really helped me grow as a sewist. I also have a weekly video blog with everything from fabric hauls and showing my makes to upcycling and tutorials.
Sewing has taken over my life and I couldn’t be happier!
