I hope to instill the same creative interest in craft that my mum did. I have lots of fond memories of my mum set up at the dining table with her sewing machine and general sewing chaos- threads, ribbons, fabric, pattern pieces. When my sister and I would ask when we could start sewing she would always say, "when you are 12". My sister one day replied, "will you still be alive when I'm 12?". Mum is pleased to announce she is alive and well and my sister is 29!
