In November 2017 I set out on a very exciting and scary venture of launching my own business with my 3 year old and 7 month old in tow... 

I've been a sewing machine addict for well over 15 years; I took Textiles GCSE and A Level and have been making textiles ranging from soft furnishings to clothes ever since I learnt the basics. I initially set up Stitch Me Happy in 2011 as a hobby but only dabbled in creating quilts and cushions for friends and family as I was still working full time as a Marketing Manager.

After having my second son in 2017 I became self employed; launched my range of beautiful and functional home-wares and accessories which were inspired by life with two messy boys, and started my blog.

Soon after I had some requests to teach sewing classes to beginners so I began offering tuition and have loved every minute of it! To find out more, take a look at the ‘classes’ tab here on my website.

I now concentrate on teaching sewing classes and workshops, making unique bespoke memory blankets and accessories (see ‘Products’ tab), and clothing alterations. I’m passionate about reducing waste when it comes to making textiles and garments; browse my blog for information and ideas on this subject.
