My name is Julie Barnes-Casson and with a crazy male dominated household I decided to find myself a hobby that I could fit in around my husband, two sons, labradoodle and full-time job.
I had always enjoyed being created so decided to throw myself into learning to how to quilt, make rugs and generally anything crafty.
I claimed the spare room as my ‘Sewing Retreat’, set up my sewing machine and set to work with a pile of scrap fabric. A few disasters later my newly acquired techniques fell into place, and whilst ‘everyday is a school day’ my expertise grows with every project I lovingly complete.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey and it has been a delight making all my nearest and dearest personalised gifts.
