When I left school I trained to be a secondary school teacher, specialising in teaching Textiles. During my teaching career of over 30 years, I have taught in schools in Essex, Suffolk and Hampshire.
I enjoy all aspects of sewing and making a range of different products, but have always been a keen dressmaker. During my career, I have designed and made numerous costumes for school plays, musicals and dance shows. My biggest achievement has been making my daughter’s wedding dress.
Recently retired, I am now enjoying time to sew and having the opportunity to help others develop their sewing skills through the delivery of evening classes and workshops.
See course descriptions for materials needed for each course. All equipment, including a sewing machine, will be available for use in the sessions.
