Founder of The Make Arcade, Ruth Oliver, is a rather experienced stitcher. Her first sewing session was aged 10 on the family sewing machine and via a learning curve of scrunchies, cushions and interesting fashion statements she went on to study at The London College of Fashion. A career designing handbags, luggage and accessories followed with a recent stint at a Royal Milliners. As lifelong crafters and sewers Ruth wants to share and pass on her skills and knowledge to enable the pleasure and practicality of sewing and making to continue to new generations.

In 2013 Ruth launched The Make Arcade which combines sewing workshops, craft themed parties, handmade products, haberdashery and our fabulous sewing and DIY kits. Let’s Make and Create
