About

My original sewing patterns are created especially to make garments from narrow handwoven fabric

I started my shop in 2014. My co-author and I have been weaving and spinning friends for 30 years, have had 3 books published (Simply Woven 1986, Creative Weaving 2007 and Get Weaving 2014) and have had stands at various British Wool Fairs (Wonderwool Wales, Woolfest Cumbria, Fibre-East Bedford and Yarndale Yorkshire) to promote weaving on small rigid heddle looms and make clothing from these fabrics.
I started to make Get Weaving patterns to sell because I was asked for them! I've spent many hours adapting and inventing sewing patterns for narrow fabrics so there is virtually no waste- after all, if you've spent hours weaving you don't want to throw half the fabric in the bin! All the pattern pieces are the same width and fit perfectly on the narrow fabric and I'm very happy to share them.
i wear my hand wovens every day, in fact I'm slowly replacing every item in my wardrobe including tops, jackets, dresses, skirts, coats, culottes and hats and scarves, I'm tackling trousers next.
Happy Weaving

    I'm a weaver, spinner and dressmaker, mainly weaving on narrow rigid heddle looms to create fabrics that I can use to make all my own clothes. I'm making full size sewing patterns and booklets with tips for anyone else who's interested.
