My Story

I love what I do and it makes me so happy to be able to share my passion with others. I am crafter, jewellery maker and in particular a sewer. With over 30 years experience as a sewer I sell a range of sewn crafts and run craft and sewing workshops.
At Brompton near Scarborough I have a craft sudio where I teach classes. As a qualified teacher (QTS) I plan and teach crafts classes and workshops in a relaxed and supportive environment to build on your creative skills. If that sounds like something you'd like to explore, please contact .
