Name: Anna Clark

Where did your love for crafting start? Where did you learn your skills?

I was off work and came across Create and Craft TV and started from there. I started like most people; making cards and then moved on to jewellery-making and then started evening classes for sewing and haven’t stopped since.

I started sewing classes at my local college and loved it! Unfortunately there are not so many classes now, but I go to my local sewing shops which are good!

What is your favourite craft activity and why?

Sewing is my favourite as I can see things coming together. I love to attend classes and catch inspiration on TV and in magazines.

What is your favourite craft item to make?

I love to make bags, cushion covers, quilts and basically anything else sewing related.

Describe your crafting space.

Work space…messy table in the living room! I would love a space in the back garden, but it’s not got a big enough at the moment.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Inspiration from TV shows and classes, magazines and shows that I love to attend, normally on a monthly basis.

Which items can you not live without when crafting?

I could not live without my sewing machine or electricity! I had a day off from work and was going to make a quilt for my nephew, unfortunately couldn’t due to no electricity, although thinking about it now, I have a very heavy old Singer Machine I could have used.

Out of all of your projects you have made which one are you most proud of and why?

I made a minion bag for a work colleague and she uses it every day which is great to see. I sent a bag to a friend, apparently her mum loved it so much that she now has it! I am making her another.

Do you have any favourite designers or brands that inspire you?

I like Sarah Payne, her demo's and classes are great. I go to her classes when I can. I am going to a weekend group with Wendy Gardiner which I am really looking forward to.

What are your crafty plans for the future?

Plans for the future, more craft, less work. I would love to have my own little business, but I need a bit of confidence!
