Eager to sew
I grew up with parents who were hat makers. From a very young age, I remember they had two treadle sewing machines!! As a child, I was very eager to learn to sew. I have a distinct memory of being too little to sit on a chair to treadle and sew at the same time! However, I was clever enough to come up with the idea to ask my younger brother to treadle at the bottom, so that I could do the sewing on the top!!!
Making my own things from an early age
Having a millinery business, there were always lots of beautiful fabric delivered to my house and my dear parents would always allow me to have small snippets of my choice. Happily I would spend hours making lovely things (at least I thought they were!), such as little purses, handbags and head/hair bands ...
Part of the family is still very much in manufacturing, producing clothing and hats exporting all over the world and employing many workers.
Before I had children, I was mad about fashion, always chasing the latest look. If I spotted a look that I liked in the morning in a magazine etc, then I would spend the afternoon creating it and in the evening I would wear it out with friends and would regularly receive compliments.
A passion for fashion led me to study City and Guilds in my early 20s and I loved it!
