Gen has been sewing and knitting since the age of eight, and throughout her extensive and impressive career, has always incorporated this creative license into her work, whatever it may be.

    Something that Gen is staunchly passionate about is passing on her love of art and creative flair to younger generations. She has now been able to combine her love of sewing, crochet, knitting and teaching and is delighted to have been able to buy the shop where she was once herself a regular customer.
