I am a passionate creator and teacher of crafts. I have lived a creative life being born in to a crafting family. From a very young age I have been surrounded and immersed in craft. My mother and my grandmother taught me to sew, bake and cook and I enjoy crafting of all kinds! My great grandmother taught me to crochet and I enjoyed this craft as a child. Recently I have rediscovered crochet and am loving it! It is so relaxing and creative and fun to do!
My main craft has been sewing and I have enjoyed making clothes for myself and my family and friends, as well as gifts for the kitchen, personal gifts, puppets and soft toys. My career as an Early Childhood teacher has also nurtured my creativity. In my teaching career I have always been passionate about children, play and providing them with beautiful materials to play with including play mats, textiles and soft toys. I have recently stopped teaching to concentrate on my creative passion, and build my business Heartfulowl.
Another thing I have inherited from my family is a love for cooking and baking and sharing it with those very special people in my life.
About 6 years ago I learnt to quilt. I resisted the art of quilting for many years but have now surrendered to this new passion! Now I design my own quilts and teach others to quilt as well.
For many years I have enjoyed teaching others how to sew and quilt. This is my new vocation!
I continue to make sew and quilt for myself, friends and family and I teach both adults and children in my Heartful Owl business. I also create my own patterns and sell them on my Facebook page
