Based in London, England, I started this blog in 2010 to have fun and laughter around the topics of sewing and knitting. I firmly believe that creativity IS contagious and I want to help you catch the bug.
A writer and editor by trade, blog writing bit came relatively easily to me. That’s not to say that it was all a smooth journey! Like all the best bloggers, some of my early photos and posts were a bit clumsy and self-indulgent, but that’s all part of the joyful learning curve and things did improve…
- Here’s a favourite blog post about the massive task of sewing my first ever coat. (There will be more coats. Oh, there will be more…)
- Here’s the time I took the plunge and wore neon orange.
- This is why we shouldn’t be scared of sewing trousers.
- And here’s a Pyjama Party sewalong I hosted, where 160+ people took part!
I’d encourage anyone to create – anything! Whether it’s sewing a skirt, knitting your first scarf, writing a blog post and pressing ‘Publish’, baking a pie or letting your fingers dance down a keyboard, it’s really important to engage with that part of your soul that needs to stand back and think, I made that. It’s the best medicine in the world and a great way of making friends.
My world has become richer, brighter and much more fun because people like you read, comment – and maybe have your own blogs or are thinking of setting one up. Do it! I promise, you’ll never look back…
