Artisan Stitch Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I learned to sew when I was 7 years old. I've spent my whole life learning about all forms of fabric work so I'm passionate about it. I love sharing my knowledge and experience and encouraging others to love sewing in any form as much as I do.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I realised that others were not offering an adequate service of actually teaching people to sew and didn't had the breadth or depth of experience that I have. It seemed obvious that I'd have to start teaching my own methods and techniques I'd learned and developed so I could help people fast-track their sewing journey and avoid all the common beginners mistakes.
Why should our clients choose you?
I understand that it can be a scary thing to learn to sew and I can use methods designed to help you overcome any nerves and learn to sew confidently. I limit the number of students so I can give lots of personal attention to each and tailor tuition according to your needs. I also offer one-to-one tuition for specific requirements.
