The Fabric First Aider

The pandemic has effected us all in many ways. Not least our mental health.

Sewing has been to a saviour to many of us during lockdown, but we’re social beings and whilst sewing keeps us occupied mentally and physically, I don’t know about you, but I really miss being able to ‘talk sewing’ with my real life sewing buddies, and I also miss going to real life sewcial events.

So I decided to arrange ‘sewcial workshops’ on Zoom to get together for an hour or 2 with other lovely sewists. The idea is to either share what you’ve been making, or if you need any advice or tips I’ll do my best to help you.

I’ve also been teaching classes on how to hack a basic sleeve block using the slash and spread method, and have plans for other workshops too.


Until the end of lockdown zoom sewcials and classes are free!

But if you would like to make a small contribution to The Ambulance Staff Charity I would be extremely grateful. To Find out more about the charity click on the image, and if you would like to donate click HERE to go to my Just Giving page.

Many thanks xx

The Paramedic

I joined the ambulance service in April 1993, and qualified as a paramedic in March 1997.

But I’ve been giving first aid to fabric since long before then!

Dealing with the stress at work definitely helped me work under pressure in the sewing room!
