Angela’s Story

angelas storyAngela tells us her story of how craft helped her during a health scare.

Last year I had a health scare and was in and out of hospital having tests and medical procedures over two months. During this time I sewed a lot to take my mind off what was going on. It helped so much and reminded me how much I loved dressmaking and being creative as I hadn’t done it for a while. It was early summer and I made several tops for myself and my sister! Thankfully tests showed I was OK. Since then I have made a few more garments!

Below is a photo of some of the lovely garments Angela has made. We love her fabric choices – very summery!
