Need I say I'm going bananas over our rad new team member Rosie! I am really pleased and excited to have Rosie join the Sew Love team. BIG big thanks to the incredible Artists Alliance programme for this opportunity. Rosie is a friendly, well travelled creative lass with a plethora of schmancy sewing skills to share with you all, a crafty eco warrior at heart, and genuine good soul I really am so blessed to have her working in the Sew Love lounge and also hosting some workshops too. Here's a little from Rosie bananas Coker herself:
Hello ello! I am Rosie and I’m super excited to join Sarah at Sew Love.
I caught the sewing bug early. I can vividly remember sitting perched on our spare bed, covered in colourful off-cuts watching my Grandmother and Mother work together sewing and altering clothes. My presence didn't go unnoticed, and as I grew too big to be hidden under the fabric I was put to work, learning skills from them both. They encouraged me to make my own clothes, adapt existing patterns, rework op-shop finds and to take my love for sewing to University. Which I did! I can’t wait to meet you all and start creating some great up-cycled garments together.
