Hi, I’m Maggie!

It all started for me way back when I was a young girl, crafting handmade clothes for my toys and beloved horse.

My passion and curiosity led me to start taking apart jeans, jackets, and other clothing items just to see how they were made.

As a teen, I began creating my own unique fashion designs – it was then that I knew I wanted a career in fashion design. With time, I have developed an expertise in couture fashion as well as costume design for dance and theatre.

Throughout my journey, I have also created several labels and ran my own boutique. This has only solidified my passion for fashion as well as dedication towards sustainability.

It is from here that my teaching career began – believing strongly in the idea that anyone can learn how to make their own quality clothes with dedication and patience. Sewing is a fulfilling craft that enables creativity and allows you to express yourself through garments.

Sewing is a rewarding and fulfilling pursuit.

Sewing is not only an incredibly rewarding skill but also an incredibly fulfilling pursuit – allowing you to express yourself through your wardrobe and stand out in our communities! You deserve to look and feel your best, and this class is all about empowering you to do so. Take control of your fashion and turn your wardrobe into a unique reflection of your style. With our classes, you will have access to expert guidance as well as state-of-the-art equipment, ensuring a successful creative experience no matter what level of expertise you possess.

Last weekend at an Open Day I did a fun class with the fabulous Maggie at Make and Mend.  I consider myself a sewer but doing the class reminded me how much I enjoy it.
The space provided in the studio was amazing- large cutting benches, sewing machines/ iron set up, and I got to use an overlocker.  I haven’t used one of those in over 20 years- I so need one.
Maggie is the kindest person and so patient and so helpful.
I just need to make some space in my calendar to book in to make a reversible jacket that I’ve seen someone make in one of the classes

I came to Maggie’s sewing class knowing nothing about sewing (didn’t even touch a sewing machine at school!) Maggie is a wonderful, gentle and patient person who teaches in a way that meets you where you’re at. Maggie always has wonderful ideas on projects you can try and is very enthusiastic and encouraging when you have an idea in mind (even if it’s not a fully formed idea). Would highly recommend coming along to one of her lovely classes!

Maggie is the most skilled, patient and generous sewing teacher you will ever meet.
My daughter started lessons in our home 5 years ago and from a family of non sewers, was a raw beginner.  Last night she went to Make and Mend for assistance in finishing off her formal dress.
We can’t recommend Maggie enough.
