Hi, I’m Gemma and I live in Portsmouth. I’ve been sewing ‘seriously’ for almost 2 years now, although I still have lot’s to learn! I was actually inspired by The Great British Sewing Bee to start sewing, although in practice it took me a while to get started. I had wanted a crafty outlet for a while, and when I watched the programme, I definitely had a ‘THIS IS IT’ moment. I then discovered the online sewing community first via YouTube (Gabberdashery and Rosabella – Sewn were the first vloggers I watched, I was instantly hooked!) and then through Instagram and it has snowballed from there. The sewing and craft community is so immense and wonderfully kind, I feel really privileged to be a part of it. I’m now joining the Simple Sew blogger team and I’m super excited and hope you all enjoy joining me on my sewing journey and adventure!
