Hey there! My name is Wendy and this is my blog.
I am a former newspaper journalist who always loved sewing and knitting but I really got serious about it when I turned my hobby into my career and retrained to become a textiles teacher in 2010
I now teach 11 to 18 year olds at a secondary school in East London – where I teach everything from simple hand sewing and the basics of clothing construction to more advanced free machine embroidery and pattern cutting.
Teaching others to knit and sew continues to bring me joy and I hope that, through this blog, I can inspire others to make things.
