Emma Brennan's Profile
Welcome to my Etsy shop. I am a journalist and author with a lifelong passion for fabric and sewing. When I am not writing stories, I am usually dreaming up new designs for my range of accessory patterns and books. I am particularly fond of handbags and the endless design possibilities they offer. My favourite fashion accessories are from the 1940s "make do and mend" era, but I also love any fashions from the 1920s to the 1950s.
In addition to being a pattern designer and author, I write news stories as a print journalist. I have also worked as a broadcast journalist and further education tutor. I have been sewing (virtually non-stop) since I was about nine years old and I have rarely been without a design sketch book in my hand since then.
My passions are vintage sewing patterns and buttons, tweed, long walks in the countryside, Thomas Hardy novels,…
