Tabatha has been sewing since 2009 and she's made hundreds of garments since then and a few home wares as well.  She's originally from Manchester, but has lived in Perpignan, Sevilla, Sheffield, Coventry and currently lives in Hull, East Yorkshire.  Tabatha is a stay-at-home Mum to two pre-school children, so generally she sew during their naptimes and in the evenings.

Tabatha loves sewing dresses most of all, as a dress is what you would find her wearing on an average day.  She often work with fun and colourful prints, florals and polka dots, and is a sucker for nautical styles.  She prefers working with cotton best of all, because it is so well behaved, but over the past year or so Tabatha has gained more experience working with knits and silks.  She regularly attends a pattern cutting course which is giving her more confidence to alter patterns and even drafther own.  Tabatha is a qualified teacher and has just started teaching basic sewing skills on a one-to-one basis, and is really enjoying that!

Sewing is her main squeeze but she also likes to have a bit of crochet on the go - something extremely simple - and she's done a bit of knitting too.  Tabatha also loves baking, and has recently started to get into cake-decorating too.  She runs 2-3 times a week so that she can eat cakes and drink cocktails without feeling too guilty!

We're so delighted to have Tabatha on the Blog Team. You can follor her on Twitter @tabatha_tweedie and on Facebook as Thread Carefully, and of course you can follow all her sewing adventure on her blog.
