Hi, I’m Sarah, I have been part of the textile, fashion and apparel industry all my working life.
I have achieved many 3rd level and post graduate qualifications in Clothing and Fashion management, BSc 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 no age, making 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 machines, fabrics, beads, bits and bobs and my heart is never more content than when 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 repetition by turning up the radio and treating each button like it’s a mini masterpiece that must be perfect. I lose myself in the creative flow of making something come together out of nothing.
