Hi, I’m Gemma. I live in Derbyshire in the UK. Although I’ve always been creative I used to have an aversion for anything remotely ‘girly’ so I never learnt to sew when I was younger. Two years ago I was off work for a while due to illness and after decided to buy a sewing machine to keep me occupied. I then used my machine sporadically for a while until taking a series of sewing workshops this year and now I’m hooked.
I have big plans for a ‘me-made’ wardrobe as I really struggle to find clothes that reflect my preferred style on the high street.
