Years ago, my sewing was an exercise in thrifty creativity; “make do and mend”! This grounding practice in being resourceful with materials has evolved into an environmentally sustainable business, which is my hands-on way of making a difference to the world we live in.

Repurposing, re-using, upcycling—whatever you call it, keeping textiles out of landfill can only be a good thing. And it feels so good to help, even if it’s just in a small way.
