Sew Totnes

I started sewing at a young age and since I then felt a strong sense of the camaraderie of doing and achieving things with other people, it now makes sense that I am a part of the Totnes Eco Boutique collective!

I still remember the sheer joy that other people's responses to my work brought when I started to sell what I was making back in the 1970s.  This has encouraged me to continue to create and I feel it is my life's purpose to do so.

My particularly favourite part of creating pieces for others is meeting the people who buy them.  I love to make bespoke garments and knowing who will be wearing them only enhances the pleasure of the creative process for me.  I also feel that this works well the other way round too - with my toys and garments my clients know who's made them, where and how - my goods have traceability and that is really important to me.

The preservation of the planet for future generations encourages me to be as ecological as possible.  I buy new fabrics locally but I also scour car boot sales and charity shops for textiles and I am often given bits and pieces too.  I love fusing styles and materials especially from different cultures and I often adapt patterns to bring out my own ideas in order to create something unique.

I hope you enjoy them!
