MANUELA JOYNES



 

My name is Manuela Joynes and I'm a dressmaker and curtain maker. I also make a selection of other things such as children's clothing, aprons, cushions, book covers, hand-bags, purses etc. Whatever takes my fancy!

I make these in my leisure time and so they are very much of my personal taste. It also means that most likely I've spent a long time on them, trying out different ideas and techniques until I'm satisfied with the way they look.


I've been hand crafting ever since the age of five when my mother taught me to crochet. My mum was a weaver and my grandmother before her was also a dressmaker although her work was mostly to keep her family in clothing.

I started my working life as a secretary but after bringing up 5 children I decided that I wanted to follow through with an old dream of working with fabrics. Already an avid amateur textile worker (dressmaking and patch-working) I spent several years in college sitting my City and Guild courses (some are up to level 3) in design, dress-making, soft-furnishings and machine embroidery.


Because I design my own patterns I am able to make almost anything from scratch, so if you would like to commission something please get in touch.

Classes

As well as making things myself, I also run sewing workshops; details can be found on my classes page.
