Introducing our new sewing tutor Kelly. Kelly is joining Millie Moon in 2022 with Sunday sewing sessions.
Hi I’m Kelly, I am a forty something crafter who actually started out scared of pins!! I know, utter madness, but I have overcome my fear to develop a love of sewing and other crafty endeavours.
I learnt to sew in my late 20’s after a friend took me under her wing and showed me how to use her sewing machine and we made a small book bag. I was totally hooked!
Age 30 I was lucky enough to be given my own sewing machine by my husband as a birthday gift, huge number of husband points, as it’s hands down one of the best ever gifts he bought me.
I then took sewing lessons, from a colleague at the time, who is also an amazing seamstress. The sewing bug took hold and my thirst for more knowledge grew.
Lots of crafty courses later (including lots at Millie Moon) here I am sharing my enthusiasm and passion with others just starting out on their journey.
I love to make all sorts of things including wallets, a variety of bags, zip pouches, curtains and blinds, Christmas decorations, memory blankets, pjs, jumpers and that’s just the sewing projects I am into.
Personalisation by choosing your own fabrics or adding embellishments or initials to a project, to add your own twist can make it truly unique and just top it all off, like the icing on a cake!
I adore making things for my family, especially my nieces and nephews.
I am at my happiest when making something that I know someone wants or needs and I can help by making it for them.
During the pandemic in 2020 I made 100’s of fabric face masks for the community, my family and friends raising over £1500 for local charity WE HEAR YOU. I didn’t realise how much of a need there was and this really spurred me on to keep making more alongside my full time job.
I also have a new found love for paper crafting too.
