Meet the maker: SewItSeams
What do you make?
Giraffes small and large, gollies, hand knitted bunnies with cardigans, padded coathangers with crystals, hand embroidered pincushion and needle case sets.
Why would you buy something handmade?
Being a craft person, I can appreciate the time and love that has gone into the item.
Where else might we see your work?
Toi Toi Gifts, Cows Go Moo, The General Store and Halswell Florist in Christchurch.
How did you get into your craft?
Through Christchurch Polytechnic I attended a 2 year course and received my Diploma in Embroidery and my interests in crafts just grew from there.
Do you have formal training or qualifications in your craft?
As above... I do enjoy the challenge of learning new things and try and nut things out myself.
What are your favourite materials, tools and/or processes?
I love bright colours and mixing and matching them to make appealing funky toys that stand out. Oh and I love my new Bernina sewing machine.
