I’ve been a clothing designer/maker for far too many years to count, running my own business making for museums and films as well as fashion and bridal. I also run a social enterprise teaching sewing and crafts in house and in the community as well as supporting micro craft businesses, and set up the health organisation http://Thyroid-Disease.Org.Uk
I love history, particularly 18th Century, and have often been found cooking historical food, organising regency balls and giving talks for orgs such as English heritage. Also I’ll take any excuse to try a new craft skill.
I’m often asked for advice on how to price, market on a budget etc as it’s something I have to do in my own work, and mentor a number of people during start up, particularly those with health issues, who may not be able to hold down a ‘proper’ job. This is a chance to develop that work and help problem solve with others.
