I have loved sewing since I was a kid. Learning from my lovely Mum and a rather snazzy Home Ec0nomics [dates me!] teacher. Hello, Mrs. Caldwell. I was always making. and altering my own clothes and my school chums. Mostly with permission. Apologies to Jackie Mac for cutting your coat into a jacket! It was nice though. Lovely collar!
I trained at The Scottish College of Textiles in Galashiels. Then worked in a fabric store and then with another designer. I loved both jobs but knew I wanted to do my own thing. So I set up around 1994 and have never looked back. I have had the greatest pleasure in meeting, designing and making for everyone since.
