Westalee Design Accredited Teacher
About The Instructor
I was born in Cornwall, UK and have lived in Bristol since I was 6 months old. I grew up watching people sew and started at a early age. At school I always loved sewing and making things using fabric. My first love has always been quilting but I have worked making luxury underwear and went on to have my own curtain and furnishing business which I manage while having a family. I opened a small shop selling crafts which I ran for 8 yrs and back in 2006 I started teaching dressmaking and tailoring. I really enjoy meeting people and watching them grow and enjoy stitching.
I attended the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham in 2015 and watched Westalee rulers being shown. I had to buy them and never looked back. I am self taught and never had a lesson but have loved every second of using them. I Fell in love with the design process and was lucky enough to be awarded Westalee Design Accredited Teacher in the UK. That was just over a year ago now. I feel very lucky to be able to teach people that they can also make beautiful things and watch them flourish with excitement when they first try. I hope to continue to be able help and teach further students in the years to come.
