  • Hi!

    Hi everyone!

    I am Helen and I live in Surrey. I have been sewing for as long as I can remember but mainly dressmaking and some crafts. I studied textiles at A level and I then went into Retail! I re-discovered sewing about 3 years ago when we had an extension at home and we needed new curtains. I went on a evening course to learn how to make them properly (rather than making it up as I went along!) and I havent looked back since. I did the course for about 9 months just so that I could spend one evening a week sewing. When my son started school a local interiors shop was looking for curtain makers, I applied and got the job. I am self employed and have been working on my own for the last year and a half so this forum is invaluable.

          Hello Helen,

          I'm sure you'll love it here. The advice is invaluable and it's sometimes just nice to think you're not totally alone when the problems arise. When I have a mental block, there is usually something in the 'archives' to help me out.... Still lots to learn but great to do it in good company.
