About Me

Hi, my name's Rachael, thanks for reading my blog.

For a really long time, as long as I can remember, I've been making things. At the age of 5 I was making dresses out of tissue paper and glue for my dolls. This then progressed to my first wobbly attempts at stitching together bits of fabric on my Mum's old sewing machine at the age of 10, and by the time I was 14 I was taking textiles at school and learning to sew.

In 2012 I rediscovered my passion for sewing as well as the online sewing community, which never ceases to inspire, amaze and motivate me. I'm always interested in talking to anybody who would like share their passion for this hobby.

I'm a Yorkshire girl, born and bred, but these days you'll find me soaking up the sun in my new home city, Lisbon, Portugal. Should you get the chance to visit this city, feel free to contact me via social media and I'd be happy to take you on a tour of my favourite fabric haunts!
