MEET THE MAKER / OPEN STUDIO EVENT at Fabrications, Saturday 9th December, 11am – 5pm
I will be presenting my special service ‘Remember Me’ downstairs in the Imaginerium. The ‘Remember Me’ service enables you to bring me your cherished threads (clothes or textiles from your children, lost loved ones or perhaps a school uniform). I remake them with creativity and care into cushions, blankets, quilts or bears; providing comfort and joy to you and your family. It is a popular service in the lead up to Christmas especially, I’d love to speak to you about making your special gifts.

‘LOVE YOUR CLOTHES’ FESTIVE WORKSHOPS – In a variety of boroughs (FREE)
I have been in a variety of boroughs around London bringing clothing repair & refashioning workshops. There are still a few dates left for December.
Bring along an old jumper or top from home or your local charity shop and turn it into a DIY Christmas jumper or bling it up for a party or perhaps something else?
You will also learn some useful hand & machine skills for day to day clothing repair or renewal. (Any level of sewer welcome!)
