Although our blog team is full up and packed with talented sewers, from time to time a space does become available. When this happens, we turn to our (very small) waiting list to see if people are still interested in joining us on our sewing journey. Luckily, Alice was!


Alice is a chartered accountant currently living in leafy Surrey, and really enjoys the moments of calm (including unpicking) she gets at her sewing table. She is originally from Beijing, and has spent 3-4 years each in Cardiff, Manchester and Reading before moving to Surrey.


Alice started sewing in 2010, and has certainly had a unconventional sewing journey – one of her very first makes was her own wedding dress!

She has since ventured into the “normal” world of sewing. She has recently started sewing with knit fabrics, and is thrilled to learn more new skills and working with an overlocker.

Besides sewing, Alice enjoys travelling, photography and stalking the latest trends on interior design.

I hope you'll join us in welcoming Alice to the team!
