About the author:

Wendy writes...

I was first taught to sew by my Gran when I was 11 years old and found that I both enjoyed it and had a skill and flair for it. During my early 20's I did a number of college courses to further improve those skills and the majority of my employment was within the soft furnishing sector. I took time out to have my 2 daughters but still used those skills to design and make all their clothes. Once they were at school I again returned to my love of designing and making soft furnishings and within a few years, because of the income it was generating, decided to set up my own business. This ran very successfully but because of personal reasons I gave it up in the mid 90's but still made for friends and family.
