Hi, I’m Leanne, a sewist & designer. As well as being a brand ambassador for Bernina I also work as a content creator for In The Folds.

I taught myself to sew in 2008 & for several years I ran an Etsy shop selling handmade fashion accessories & jewellery.

I was also a regular contributor to Mollie Makes Magazine, sharing dozens of DIY tutorials & book reviews with the maker community.

Along the way, my husband & I moved from London to Germany, had 3 kids & founded a couple of cosy Airbnbs in the Bavarian Alps.

In 2020, upon rediscovering the indie sewing community, my passion for sewing was reinvigorated & I’ve been on a mission to sew myself a #memade wardrobe ever since.

In 2023 we moved again to Melbourne, Australia!

I’m inspired by the slow fashion movement & am currently teaching myself surface design for fabric, as well as how to drape & draft my own sewing patterns.
