A Thread of Vintage

All about us

I have been a dressmaker for many years and grew up designing and making all sorts of things. I dabbled for a few years making teddy bears and collectible soft toys (hence my photo!).


I do however just love the process of designing and coming up with different ideas. Especially this would include adapting old vintage pictures and  giving them a new life. So along with using my own artwork I have moved more into the creating designs that a customer can have instant access to and print on their own computer. Please visit my etsy shop to get more information -




I grew up surrounded by a family of dressmakers and knitters and so gained a lot of knowledge from them. For the clothes alterations side of sewing and learning the different techniques involved I recieved my training in a Gentlemen's outfitters shop - Richard Gordon's in Faversham. It is no longer there but I learnt a lot. This then led onto about 25 years of working for myself and providing clothes alterations for my customers.
