About Val - Owner of The Sewing Parlour
Being mad about sewing, making and creating and my love of fabric helped me turn my passion into The Sewing Parlour - a place dedicated to sewing in Northwich!
Where my sewing journey began
My creative journey began during my teens when I would design and make an outfit on my day off ready to wear at the weekend, the thrill of making your own clothes is a feeling of pride and accomplishment as well as being fun & sometimes challenging.
Laura Ashley, and beyond...
While working for Laura Ashley I developed my skills further in garment construction,
expanding into home interiors, lampshade making and furniture revamp.
My dream sewing studio
After many years working as a College Lecturer I have created my own sewing studio offering workshops and tailor-made sessions for small groups or one to one.
Along with commissions I also work with other small creative businesses providing sewing service & guest tutor.
