If it makes you feel better I didn't start out as a sewer and still don't consider myself to be one in the traditional sense. I like most of my generation made the dreaded sampler at school and not the one that the teacher held on high. Mine was a grubby, puckered little thing.
However, like a bird collecting for it's nest I loved all the bits and pieces and gathered them in drawers and baskets and bags and every so often hauled them out to admire and fuss over. I've always just like making things and working with colour
In the last 10 years I have been making and making for me and for friends. What you see on are those designs now made up in kit form. Its been a long road, lots of tears, lots of fun and now it's finally done.
