Hello, I’m Diana. I started The Stitchery so I could turn one of my favourite hobbies into a career. Basically so I could sew every day, and make beautiful soft furnishings using traditional methods for your home and garden.
Being a seamstress runs in the family. My granny was a haute couture dress maker. My uncle was a fashion designer and clothing maker. I grew up watching my great aunty make curtains and soft furnishings, as a help to my interior designer mum, also a curtain maker.
When I sat down at the sewing machine for the first time it didn’t feel like the first time; it felt like family and I loved it instantly. Whatever your interior design or soft furnishing needs, I am happy to help online, over the phone, or in person.
