My name is Georgia, and I live in Edinburgh with my boyfriend James and a small cat called Wallace.

When I was nine my Mum taught me to use a sewing machine, and I’ve never forgotten it. Over the years I have fallen on and off the sewing wagon, but of late I have become obsessed. I spend all my free time sewing garments for myself and others.

I have a long list of skills I want to get under my belt, and garments I want to perfect, so this blog will hopefully showcase everything I make as I go!

P.s. for anyone puzzled by the word ‘Sassenach’, it is an old Scots’ word which refers to an English person – although it’s usually meant as an insult!
