My name is Emma Jones and I love sewing! I love all kinds of sewing too, from quilting to embroidery, cross stitch to needlepoint, dressmaking to making toys. If it involves a needle and thread then I love it! This year my love of English Paper Piecing has grown into a full blown addiction so I write a lot about that on my blog and post about it regularly on Instagram.
I have been sewing, crafting and making things since I was five and I am really passionate about inspiring people to take up the creative arts as a hobby. I have experienced how beneficial sewing can be for wellbeing and mental health and I want to encourage others to give it a go. When I became a mum, I left my career in primary school teaching with the idea of combining my love of teaching with my passion for sewing and I started this website. On my website you will find my blog which is the place where I share what I'm currently making, my thoughts feelings and ideas about sewing, as well as step by step tutorials. There is also a pattern page which is where you can download printable patterns so you can make the things I have designed. The video tutorial page is a place where I can show you how to do different techniques in an easy to understand format. Here I show you how to do different embroidery stitches as well as English Paper Piecing techniques.
I hope you enjoy browsing my website and that it inspires you to get making. Please check back regularly as the website continues to grow with new content being added often. Follow me on Instagram for daily updates too! Happy Sewing
