I took the plunge and left publishing to pursue my passion for sewing. This passion, coupled with my strong desire to develop people to help them achieve the best version of themselves led me to my conviction of teaching people to sew. I take great pride in raising awareness of how easy it is to make, mend and alter things and demystifying a number of sewing myths.
