I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 63, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 25. I enjoy embroidery and applique and prefer to machine piece and quilt my projects. I love my vintage Singer sewing machines especially my Featherweight 222K. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, three Essex , one Singer 20. one Singer 40 and a Vulcan Countess. My love of sewing I believe comes from my Grandmother - I still have the drawings she made for me to embroider on tea towels many many years ago!

Dolly Quilts


I’ve joined the Group Project KIN.  You can find out more info here .... 

I’m making Dolly Quilts- lots of fun, quick to sew and I’m using up some stash!

I have two more cut out ready to sew. 

The Organisation also has started a GoFundMe Christmas Appeal - 

I’m enjoying making the quilts, if you go to the linked Page you can see all the other beautiful items being made.  Perhaps you might like to join the Group or donate to the Christmas Appeal.  

No other sewing to show I’m afraid as I’ve been unwell for the past week with a virus ☹️ but on the mend now!

Cheers from Helen 
Happy Sewing!!
