PROFILE

I am a girl with a passion for sewing and creating beautiful things. I have 4 amazing boys and so sewing brings out my girly side. Having previously worked in an Interior design and fabric shop for 6 years, I  helped clients choose colour schemes and styles. Measured and worked out quantities and also made the curtains and blinds. I then went on to work as a seamstress at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire for 7 years. Home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Here I made curtains, swags, pelmets, blinds and dressed huge 4 poster beds. From making the toiles to the finished product, I worked with lots of amazing fabrics with beautiful hand made trims. Based within the main house and in hotels and holiday cottages. I was lucky enough to work closely with designer David Mlinaric and furniture expert Jonathan Bourne,  from voile's for a cottage bathroom to 14 pairs of curtains, swags and tails for the public route in the main house.  I have a lot of experience and after the birth of my 3rd baby have decided to create my own business so I can make beautiful window dressings for all you lovely people. 

When I have time I also design and make a range of Winney and Rose home accessories. These are available to buy via my Facebook page so please follow me for updates. There is a link button on the home page of this website.
