Claire is a qualified fashion designer and has been a professional dressmaker for many years. While working in bridal and evening wear she developed her skills in surface embellishment leading to a love of free hand machine embroidery. She is an enthusiastic teacher with lots of patience and great advice and experience to share. Her approach is refreshing, exciting and with an absolute eye on quality.  She is bound to inspire and guide those around her – both experienced people and those new to the art of sewing.

“I loved everything!  I feel much more confident with my sewing machine now...hope to be back soon.”
