I am the director of Sandbach Craftworks, an arts and crafts studio which is in the heart of Sandbach Cheshire.  We deliver workshops on card making, scrapbooking, Gelli Plate printing, art journaling, needle felting, jewellery making and watercolour painting.

I write about what makes me happy and am a freelance demonstrator, crafty teacher and speaker making bespoke cards, scrapbooks, journals and scrap canvas. I am vetted for the education sector.

In crafting I have a motto ‘be yourself everyone else is taken’ – Oscar Wilde.

  Brand Ambassador

Between 2011 – 2016 I was brand ambassador and demonstrator for WOW Embossing Powders.
