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

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

Crafts

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

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