Meet the maker yvonne grace chambers

HI I am Yvonne and so glad I have found Folksy as It gives me another reason to carry on creating. I live out in the lovely Fen countryside, I am a Mum of four grown up children and have four grandchildren with a lovely gardener husband Stewart. I love to create but especially painting, drawing and sewing, I have my Mum to thank for allowing me to learn to sew on her ancient Singer treadle machine churning out endless outfits for my Sindys. I made my first pair of trousers at the age of 14, a fetching pair of bright orange flares. I am currently focused on sewing as I seem to have an endless supply of fabrics etc, thanks to my other hobbies of carbooting, auctions and charity shops. I grew up in a make do and mend home and hardly anthing was wasted, so love to upcycle items for further use, keeping buttons, trims, zips anthing useful. I am lucky to live in a large farmhouse which gives me loads of room to stash my goodies. :)
I have experience in art and design, jewellery making and design, garden design and dressmaking/needlework, having done courses in all ot these fields!
thank you for reading my profile, I hope to soon be bold enough to put some of my artwork on Folksy!
