I'm Jayne, owner of From Rags to Stitches - an utterly delightful emporium of lots of gorgeous fabrics, yarns, patterns & haberdashery bits and pieces!
My long time love of sewing and quilting, as well as the growing interest in sewing in the UK, prompted me to open a fabric emporium 'From Rags To Stitches' 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 crafting and interior design shows, have inspired people to sew their own clothes and soft furnishings for their home. Unfortunately and sadly sewing is no longer taught in many schools. I was thrilled with the idea of opening From Rags To Stitches after seeing the increase and demand for sewing tuition and fabrics. This gave me the oppertunity to share my knowledge and experience. (Jenny Haskins accredited tutor, qualified corsetiere and machine embroiderer) with others who hunger to learn the time honoured skills of sewing, patchwork and quilting, dressmaking and general crafting.
Here at From Rags To Stitches we 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 is why here at From Rags To Stitches we offer a wide variety of sewing workshops in quilting, dressmaking, 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. All classes are aimed at skill levels from absolute beginners to the more experienced and even those returning to sewing after time out.
Here at From Rags To Stitches we proudly provide a friendly gathering place, where stitchers of all styles and skill levels can learn, share, create, and socialise with fellow sewists and quilters in a relaxing atmosphere.
From Rags To Stitches is dedicated to 100% customer satisfaction. Often going the extra mile to ensure a fulfilling as well as successful sewing experience for each person who walks through my doors.
We so look forward to your visit...
