Hi! My name is Corrine and I am completely new to sewing. I stumbled across sewing quite by accident. Having left a stressful job and with a potential change in career on the horizon, I needed a way to channel some of the stress, frustration and uncertainty that I was feeling.

I searched online and found a beginners sewing class where the end project was a cushion. During the class, all I could think about was the task at hand. My anxieties about different aspects of my life did not matter. I had not felt so relaxed in a very long time, and as a bonus, I was really enjoying myself. I successfully completed the cushion and was amazed at my achievement (my first ever sewing project). Needless to say, after that first class, I was absolutely hooked!

Now, I am determined to learn new sewing skills – everything is new to me at the moment – and go on to complete more projects. SO, I am embarking on my sewing adventure, where I hope to learn a lot, share a lot, and make some new friends along the way. Who knows where this might take me, but here is exactly where it begins…

Smile! It might make someone’s day.
