I will be teaching sewing lessons from home.
If you are a beginner sewer and require guidance on how to set up your sewing machine and general advise please contact me.
I will also be teaching how to make small projects I currently do.

  • Making a short skirt with elastic waist (perfect for wearing with leggings)
  • Small lined bag from 1 metre of fabric.
  • Useful apron, using a teatowel and spare material to turn it into a beautiful apron. I have recently made some owl aprons.
  • Hanging lavender hearts.
  • Simple cushion.

And other exciting ideas....

So please email me if you live in the Cornwall, UK area  at   or tel  07941 226714.

Upholstery, Latest project

My latest project, I have purchased an antique chair, I will be making repairs and upholster the chair, replacing the work material with something modern and attractive. Kind of an 'old meets new' look.

I will be showing pictures shortly to show the 'work in progress', so watch this space....

I have read up about the subject, so if you would like some advise. Or if you have a piece of furniture that you require upholstering, please contact me for a quote.

This is my first project, I would be able to advise you of my experience - if you require advise on upholstery.

Thank you!

ps Please note, pictures will follow shortly....
