I've always been crafty, having a go at all sorts, from cross stich to decoparge. My Mum and Gran taugh me to knit when I was young, being the only left handed one in the family it was difficult for a while and I was very good at adding stiches to each row for a long time so anything I made was generally a lot wider at one end.
The first time I used a sewing machine, I seem to remember I was about 6ish and had gone to visit my parents mountineering club, some running repairs were being done to the bunkhouse. In the dining room, around the large communal table was several hand turned sewing machines, after watching some of the guy's patch up thier sleeping bags, I asked if I could have a go. With a bit of help I was off; stiching some very wiggly lines across a couple of scraps of fabric. It didn't look very much but I was very proud, and convinced my master piece looked very snazzy…
