I'm here to help you ......

My name is Alison and I live in the Staffordshire Moorlands with my fur baby Teddy and a whole bunch of chickens, I'm an advanced bag maker and I'm here to help you on your bag making journey by giving tips, tricks, help and advice.  I've been making bags for about 8 years now, ever since I decided to recreate a little bag I bought while on holiday in Menorca, I loved it so much, it fell to pieces.

In the beginning I was totally overwhelmed by all the bag making products available, particularly interfacing, I well remember receiving my first bag making supplies order, I had no idea what to do with the interfacing, what side was the glue side?, how should I apply it to my fabric ? Through trial and error I worked it out but you don't have to do that, rather than wasting time and a lot of money buying expensive interfacing products not fit for purpose, I'm here to guide you, to describe what results certain interfacings produce, for example slouchy or stand alone bags and I can explain the differences between American products often mentioned in bag patterns vs UK products which do exactly the same job.
