About The Smart Stitcher

I am a teacher, maker and designer. I started my working life as a mental health nurse and I changed career in the early naughties. I graduated from the Royal School of Needlework in 2006 having learnt to stitch anything with expertise. I started working with leather in 2010 which opened up a whole new discipline for me. I love the challenges of creating bespoke pieces for people. Sharing my knowledge and skills is a passion of mine. You can learn anything is tea and cake are involved!
