Hello and welcome!
I am an English girl born and bred in the picturesque Somerset countryside.
I have nurtured an urge to create beautiful things from fabric and wool ever since I made a pincushion for my mum on Mother’s Day circa 1973!
My skills have, thankfully, improved considerably from those first tentative steps into the world of Handmade and, whilst my ‘day’ job is equally creative as a Wedding Photographer, my real passion is for sewing and crochet – from which comes “Sewchet”.
In my Twenties I made wedding dresses, ball gowns, tailoring, curtains and soft furnishings for a living followed by five years working for a fashion designer.
My four children have all had the dubious pleasure of wearing my creations and all seven (yes, seven) of the homes I have lived in bear testament to my creative genius. Or so I like to think.
I am lucky enough to have the luxury of a dedicated studio in our converted loft, which has recently been refitted to accommodate all of my creative needs in the most organized way imaginable.
Luckily, I have a very
resigned supportive husband.
