It all started with Nana’s sewing machine
When my Nana Joan went into a rest home she gave me her sewing machine. I’d been around sewing all my life. My mum made all my clothes when I was a child – I’d never sewed for myself.
Inspired by Nana’s sewing machine, I started making my own clothes, learning how to sew as an adult. It opened up a whole new world. Finally, I could make what I always wanted to wear. The only trouble was I couldn’t always find the fabrics I wanted locally.
So began Joan’s Fine Fabric back in 2021.
“I fell in love with creating my own handmade wardrobe from new and vintage fabrics that were kind on the environment”
I hope you enjoy your visit to Joan’s and browsing the collection of fabrics and patterns.
You are welcome to get in touch with any questions. Drop me a line at email@example.com and I’ll be happy to help.
I love matching makers with the perfect fabric. Joan’s collection includes patterns and fabrics for both seasoned sewists (sew artists!) and first timers from my favourite brands:
Friday Pattern Company
Liberty of London
Matchy Matchy Sewing Club
Merchant & Mills
Modern Sewing Co.
Every few weeks I sew something up from one of our patterns and fabrics and write up a blog post. There’s always so much to learn and I love to share my learnings along the way with each pattern or new fabric.
Thanks for popping in!
