Hello! I’m Sarah, I have worked in the textile, fashion and apparel industry all my life. I’m a professional seamstress and make a range of fabric cover buttons for use in sewing, knitting and craft projects.
I have achieved 3rd level and post graduate qualifications in Clothing and Fashion management, a BSc in Clothing Management and a chartership CText ATI from the Textile Institute to name a few. Though the sewing, tailoring and craft skills I have are largely self taught from years and years of careful sewing and experience.
Making has always been a natural part of me from I was small, when I would make dresses for my Barbie, to today making and altering wedding dresses for slightly panicked brides!
I have a brilliant sunny studio in beautiful County Down, Northern Ireland. It’s full of sewing machines, fabrics, beads, bits and bobs and my heart is never more content than when I’m in there.
I am very exacting in my work, precise and careful. Everything I make is of a high standard and made with great care and attention.
I manage the repetition of making button after button, by turning up the music in my studio, getting lost in making and treating each button like it’s a mini masterpiece that must be perfect. I love the creative flow of making something come together and I love a little chat with my customers about what they are making.
Thank you and Happy Crafting!
