Soft Furnishing Courses




Things To Do

How To Find Us





My love of sewing stretches way back to being a young 5 yr old child, I have lovely memories of the sound of the electric sewing machine, watching my mother sew and waiting in anticipation for her to finish those ever so fiddly "doll's clothes".

Dressmaking was a great love of mine until "a new home" led me on the path of making soft furnishings. I learnt through a combination of adult education classes, books, soft furnishing and upholstery courses, and I gained much experience, made many mistakes from my own projects before starting a soft furnishing business in Cardiff.

I love to teach others and prior to starting my own business, I undertook a 3 year part time course in adult education (PGCE Further education), and taught various subjects in adult education courses. Moving to Carmarthenshire, in 2006, I decided to start running workshops here on site at Rainbow Cottages, Carmarthenshire. The beautiful and relaxing countryside setting is a great place to take time off to learn new skills and create something useful in the process.
