I learnt to sew at school and have been making my own clothes and soft furnishings ever since. After a 10-year career in banking and bringing up my two lovely boys, I decided on a change of course, and in the late nineties I undertook an advanced Soft Furnishings course and started making curtains for friends. I set up my business in 2004, in Buckinghamshire, quickly gaining an extensive and loyal clientele, which included a number of interior designers.

I have now relocated to North Yorkshire with my husband, and we are happily settling in to this wonderful part of the country. Having spent several months dressing every window in our new house, I am now ready to offer my sewing skills to anyone within a 20-mile radius of Kirkbymoorside.
