DIY Support

Helping You Succeed In Your DIY Project

Are you the independent DIY sort? Do you love that wonderful feeling of creating your own very personal and meaningful touches? Then let me help you to ensure your success.

Whilst DIY is deeply satisfying, it can also be really stressful, time-consuming and surprisingly expensive! What starts out as a fun project can all too easily become a fraught race against the clock.

I have extensive training and years of experience in embroidery, textile art, soft-furnishings and stitched accessories. I've also made countless costumes and props, including theatre and film work. You can trust me to be there by your side. 

I can help you by providing two DIY Support services. Both will let you focus on the fun stuff!

Support Packs

Everything you need for your project. Each Support Pack will vary widely according to your project, but will generally include:

- Samples for you to copy and adapt.

- Instructions.

- Materials.

- Unlimited email/message support and advice.

COST: I am happy to talk through your ideas and needs and put together a quotation for you.

EXTRAS: At an additional cost (charged at an hourly rate), you can also book working sessions together (either to give you help with the tricky bits or to rescue you - should you not get everything finished on time!).


A half-day workshop for you and up to 7 guests. These are ideal for Hens Parties, Baby Showers and Birthdays. The aim is to provide you and your friends/family with an session of crafting, laughter and delicious treats! I have training and years of experience teaching both adults and children, so you will be in safe hands!

Workshops might include: putting together floral sprigs for place-settings, making bunting, decorating place cards, making table runners, putting together favours gift boxes, making corsages; the list is endless. I'm happy to talk through any ideas you have.

INCLUDES: Whilst each will look very different, they will all run for 3-4 hours and the common elements are:

- Preparation of samples.

- Preparation of 'teaching' plan and notes.

- Sourcing of materials.

- Provision of morning/afternoon tea, including the delicious treats.

COST: We offer workshops at $80 per person (minimum of 3, maximum of 8). The morning or afternoon tea is complimentary. The cost of all materials is separate - we are happy to provide a quote before you book.
