I have been sewing since I was four years old, taught by my mother on her old Singer GoldenTouch. I still use that machine today to create beautiful, practical, and fun items out of cloth.

I have a quirky sense of humour, and an endless thirst for knowledge.

When I'm not sewing, I can be found reading, playing video games, or taking a peaceful stroll down by the river.

In my workroom, I have two trainee assistants, who inspect all aspects of everything I create.

Meet Skitt, the black panther of patterns, and Moxie, the mistress of materials.

This is Miss Emily, who took over from Edmund. She loved fabric as much as I do, and was fascinated by the creative process.

This is Edmund, who held the position before Emily. He was a master inspector of raw materials, items in progress, and finished works.
