Hi, my name is Jo and I've loved sewing and making things for as long as I can remember. I love fabric, (especially children's fabrics) choosing it, buying it, touching it, cutting it and making it into a variety of different things. There is an amazing array of fabrics to chooose from and if I had the time (and money!) I'd spend my days browsing and buying!
I live in Worcestershire, am married and have 2 children, girls aged 6 and 3 and a 10 year old cat. I am also a puppy walker for the Guide Dogs and am currently training a Black Lab puppy called Farley for the next year. I have a music degree and am also a qualifed primary school teacher but at the moment I am at home full time and loving it.
My inspiration and motivation.
When my oldest daughter was a baby we had just moved into a new build house and had a lot of blank walls to fill. I wanted something big, bright and bold for her wall and the teacher side of me wanted it to be educational as well. Not surprisingly I couldn't buy what I wanted so decided to make my own. 5 years later it is still on the wall and helped teach her all her letters and numbers before starting school.
I was hooked after making this one and knew I needed to continue sewing. Most of my items as well as being beautifully decorative, also have an educational theme to them.
I hope you enjoy looking round my shop and that you find something you like.
