About Sew Tilley

Sew Tilley is a small handmade business, run by Tilley. Lovingly creating memory keepsakes and so much more, with the occasional helping hand from her young son and patient husband.


How it all started

I have always loved being creative. I can always remember when I was little, sitting at the dining room table at my mum's old sewing machine sewing two cushions for my bedroom. As I grew older I found a love of woodwork and anything to do with the outdoors.

After I married and moved away, I purchased my first sewing machine with a voucher we received for our first wedding anniversary. It was intended to be used for the occasionally turning up of trousers and mending things. Then I fell in love with sewing. 

A few years later, after having our son, I started making cushions and blankets. My first sewing machine was getting worn and I wanted something I could quilt on. For my 21st birthday my parents brought me a new machine. 

After making many items for family and friends and refining my skills, I was often told I should start making to sell. 

Once our son started school I needed something else to focus on during the day. That is where Sew Tilley was born!

Now I spend my days (after the school run and doing the house work!) sewing and creating in my own dining room.
