Hello lovely people!

Thanks for checking out my website. My name is Emma and I live in Nottinghamshire with Mark and Raspberry the cat. I work in IT, although as many of us have found during the madness that is COVID-19, I have had quite a large amount of spare time to fill, and at times have felt quite lost – until the sewing machine arrived! And so this site and my love of sewing was born, after an intense period of baking which now takes a back seat.

I am a bit of a crazy cat lady, but I promise to try and keep cat posts to a minimum, unless I can find a way to tie it in with the sewing content. I love to cook and adapt recipes, so I am expecting to start to adapt sewing patterns more and more as I build confidence and creativity. As I write this intro, in the middle of June, I’ve been sewing now for 2 and a half weeks and I just can’t get enough. As you’ll see from some of my blog posts, I’ve already tackled some clothes, home accessories and some nice little gifts, and I can’t wait to move onto some more complicated patterns and fabrics.

So thank you for taking the time to have a look and to share my experiences with me. Hope to see more of you on here, or on instagram.

Em x
