ABOUT ME

I am Angela and I really love to sew. I started sewing as a child and by the time I was a teenager I was wearing the very latest fashions to go out in. I wear my Handmade clothes almost exclusively Years have passed and I am passionate about reducing the amount of textiles sent to landfill. So I started this blog in order to have a way in which to pass on my gained knowledge, and my professional knowledge to you, free of charge. Sewing is empowering, you can save money by making items, make money by selling then, and you can pass your knowledge on to others. What is not to love? Interestingly I am a direct descendant of the Flemish weavers who came over to England in the 1300's. I find that fascinating especially as most of my family from as far back as I can trace are somehow involved in the manufacturing of fabric . As a child my Saturday mornings were spent at Dads factory playing amongst razor sharp Card Clothing . My grandmother worked in the cotton mills and one of my aunts made bespoke car seats. I have a degree in tailoring with a special interest in WW2 fashion. I have Parkinson's and support disabled people without question. Do ask if you need help or advice on sewing aids and techniques Angela.

How to sew an embroidered wool coat. A Minerva Craft Blogger Network Post

This is a very easy to sew coat so even if you have never made a coat before do make one.


The fabric is amazing and needs the simplest of patterns to show it off. It is well within the capabilities of everybody so what are you waiting for? Do follow this link and read the rest of my post. You will be able to read the tutorial and order the fabrics and notions too.

If you have any spare fabric left over it would make a beautiful handbag or  even a coat for your dog  if you have one!
