New Sew Confident Studio: Chorley, England - Meet Dawn

Hi everyone, I’m Dawn! Born in Fife, Scotland, I moved to England with my parents and sister when I was 15. After studying at college and Uni I settled down in the North West of England and live with my husband and two children.  

I’ve always been creative, my mum and granny taught me to knit, I’ve had a go at card making and even made my own wedding invitations and favours. I also love sewing and doing DIY. I think it all began at high school many years ago in my home economics class.

It started as a hobby and I’m self taught, I did a GCSE in textiles at high school and have attended night classes on how to make curtains, blinds and upholstery - I chose to up-cycle a chair. 

I love looking on Pinterest, surfing the internet and mooching in Shops, then try and re-create things. 

I find sewing and crafts so relaxing, therapeutic and rewarding.  There is no better feeling than when you’ve handmade something and people like and admire your work.

Life is too short and I have always wanted to get away from years spent working in office environments. 

I’ve always wanted to have a career doing something I love and that I’m passionate about. I cannot wait to open my studio in Chorley. I’m excited about this next big step, I’m looking forward to welcoming people into my gorgeous Sew Confident Studio. It’s going to be relaxing, friendly and a sociable space where people can come and learn a new skill from beginners sewing classes, to sewing pattern class and quilting plus so many other fantastic on trend classes. 

I can’t wait to join the Sew Confident team, hopefully I’ll meet some of you reading this very soon at one of the classes.
