Hello, I’m Helen

I started my sewing journey when I was younger but never took it seriously until I stumbled upon it in college. From college, I decided it was something I wanted to do more of and so I went off to University.

There I studied a Historical and Performance costume for stage and screen course. Now I wanted to start a blog to share my knowledge and learn new skills along the way!


Sewing to me includes everything from embroidery, applique, cross stitch and much more!


Crafting is fun as a child or adult or even together. You can use anything you can find using something as simple as a glue gun.


DIY is anything that is taking something from one form into another, wood work or general upcycling.
