Sew Together is run by me, Jan Grafton. I am a retired textiles and food technology teacher with for more than 35 years’ experience in state Secondary Schools. I was born into a family of sewers and my grandmother introduced me to a love of making at the age of 8. I have taught Textiles to GCSE and A’ level and been an examiner for A’ level. I cannot claim to be an expert at everything sewing related but I have a ‘can do’ attitude and will aim to help students to solve problems that arise.
