How long have you been sewing for: I learnt to sew at high school, where I was taught by a super scary teacher. Thankfully she didn't deter me! I lost inspiration over the last few (lost) years but Sarah's up-cycling class reignited my passion to make things.
What do you enjoy most about sewing: Sewing allows me to express my creativity (unlike my day job!) and gives me the inspiration to live a more sustainable life.
Did you learn anything extra at sew love? I learnt that not all sewing teachers are scary! The whole process of making a shirt was unfamiliar to me when I started. It was quite intimidating but Sarah and Rosie held my hand all the way to the finish line.
