About

Hello there!

I’m Jayne, owner of From Rags to Stitches.  My longtime love of sewing and quilting, as well as the growing interest in sewing in the UK, prompted me to open a fabric emporium, stuffed with fun, modern fabrics (all hand inspected for quality), notions, patterns, and more, to meet the creative needs of sewing enthusiasts in the scenic Yorkshire County area.

Popular television programme’s, such as the Great British Sewing Bee and many interior design shows, have inspired people to sew their own clothes and soft furnishings for their home. Unfortunately, sewing is no longer taught in many schools. Seeing the increasing demand for sewing instruction, I was thrilled with the idea of opening a business where I could share my knowledge and experience (Jenny Haskins accredited tutor, qualified corsetiere, machine embroiderer, and teacher) with others who hunger to learn the time honoured skills of sewing and quilting.

I want to help people be creative with a needle – not just machine needles, but needles of all kinds!

I’m passionate about the creative process and enjoy watching others discover their own sewing talents. That’s why I offer a wide variety of sewing workshops in quilting, soft furnishings and free motion embroidery, along with boot camps for beginners, and inspiring classes for professional sewists, interested in learning new ideas and techniques.

My shop provides a friendly gathering place where stitchers of all styles and skill levels can learn, share, create, and socialize with fellow sewists and quilters in a relaxing atmosphere.

I am dedicated to 100% customer satisfaction, often going the extra mile to ensure a fulfilling and successful sewing experience for each person who walks through my doors.

I so look forward to your visit…
