I’m Holly; I am a textile designer/maker based in North Somerset where I grew up and live in my cottage with my two dogs, Dora (whippet) and Tilly (yorkshire terrier). I first discovered textiles in secondary school where I chose it as a GCSE and then went onto study it at A-level and further into university.
I built my business around my studies and since graduating university have taken it full time. Everything is designed and hand cut by myself so each item is unique. You will find my products available in the shop section of my website however, I am always happy to take on custom requests, just drop me a message on my social medias or via email.
With over 10 years sewing experience I also teach sewing from beginner level to more advanced. I cover the basics of the sewing machine to dress making and product construction. Free motion embroidery is a textile technique I specialise in and teach which is much like drawing just on the sewing machine. With all my workshops they are taught 1-1 or small groups of three only, I feel this is the best way to learn a skill with no pressure. You will also get invited to an online community full of likeminded sewers and support from myself. My teaching style is very relaxed as you are welcomed into my workspace filled with fabric and fairy lights.
For those of you who are a little further away I offer 1-1 online lessons to help you in your sewing journeys.
Thanks for reading!
