Fast forward a few years and I bought a brand new Brother sewing machine and started making fabric bunting and small homeware items as gifts and presents for people - it feels like I've been sewing ever since. I start to get grumpy if I haven't sewn for a few days!
I started selling my sewn items in 2012 when I set up Molly Felicity Designs and started teaching in 2018. Often at craft fairs and shows customers would stop to talk and tell me that they ‘wished they could sew’. Nine times out of ten people have the basic skills but need a little bit of confidence in their skills and ability. I hope that through my lessons and tutorial workshops I am able to instil that in them.
