What our customers say: 'Sophia was patient, and had planned the lesson extremely well. I absolutely loved it. I only got a sewing machine a year ago so I still consider myself a newbie. I like that the groups were not huge because it meant the teacher was able to give enough time to everyone. I hope to do more lessons at the Village Haberdashery this year.' - Nicole C.

She spends her days making unique, fun and colourful soft furnishings and gifts for all the family. She is mostly self taught and has been stitching since she was 6 years old. After working in a handmade children's clothing company in Sydney, Australia on her gap year, she decided to give her parents a panic and come home to start her own company aged 19!
