Teri Aldersey's Profile

About

My given name is Teresa, but all my friends call me Teri. I'm 40 yeas old, married to my wonderful husband Chris, and have one furbaby pusscat called Gizmo.

I used to sew as a kid at school and even won the school sewing trophy when I made a pin cushion when I was about 8. I had sat by the window for perfect light, so I could sew all the stitches in line using the grain of the fabric for a ruler... and that's why I won the award for attention to detail! A little extreme now I know... but it does show you can be sure that my work is of good quality. My nickname is 'Monica' as I'm rather a perfectionist and very organised.

I didn't do much sewing or making really after leaving school, until I started making things as a hobby when I joined a costuming club in the late 90's. I started sewing again, using my Mums old sewing machine (which I still have and use... as…

I didn't do much sewing or making really after leaving school, until I started making things as a hobby when I joined a costuming club in the late 90's. I started sewing again, using my Mums old sewing machine (which I still have and use... as well as my 5 other machines!), and then turned my hand to making my own props and jewellery.

From there things have just kinda spiralled and now I make all sorts of things, from hats, fascinators, garters, full outfits, bridal accessories... you name it! My hobby, my work... basically my life is sewing, making and generally working with my hands! I love to create, especially for others.

As all my creations are handmade, they are also all one of a kind and unique! Everything is made with love, so much so... sometimes I struggle to part with them!

I love taking commissions and happy to work with anybody to come up with the perfect design to match a colour scheme, theme, hobby... or anything else! Sizes are variable too and I can even make things to suit any budget.
