What are your qualifications? 
I have a HND in Fashion Textiles and a BA (Hons) Fashion degree.

What is the most difficult thing you have ever made?
The most difficult thing I ever made would probably be a huge Mens oversized knitted housecoat, its was so heavy once it was complete.

I spend a lot of time listening to music, I love cooking and try to hit the yoga studio a few times a week where possible.
