About Me

Making has always been my number one passion – I love to find creative uses for all sorts of everyday or upcycled objects.

My Favourite Things

The perfect day for me would start with a lovely breakfast followed by a walk in the woods, in a trip to the fabric store ending with hours spent in the sewing studio – wonderful!

Area of Expertise

Textiles, sewing, vintage crafts & upcycled crafts -I really enjoy working with embroidery, applique and patchwork - If I can reuse or upcycle at the same time; all the better!

We had a fabulous time at our craft session on Saturday. Leanne, who led the class was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone got one on one time to discuss their ideas, gave plenty of time for questions and advice, and even helped some who weren’t as quick with a needle and thread! The Bride-to-be is even ditching the underwear she bought for the wedding, and is wearing her customised knickers instead!”

We had so much fun! Our host, Leanne, was super laid back and helpful. She showed us how to make something beautiful
