Meet the Designer: Jodi of Mother Grimm

About me

Hi - I'm Jodi, aka Mother Grimm. I live in the hinterland of mid Wales, aka the back of beyond. I've always loved making things and have spent most of my life adapating RTW clothes and clothing patterns; to fit myself or have a unique style. I am one of those people who looks at an item and thinks, I could make that at home for twice the price😄 My grandmothers and aunt taught me how to hand sew, embroider and knit from an early age and until I was 16, I hand sewed all my alterations or garments. (Apart from textiles at school where we had access to machines). I was then given an old 50's singer which served me for many years. When it finally gave up, I went back to needlepoint, cross stitch and similar for a few years until I bought myself a new machine to try out quilting. I did that for a couple of years then started making clothes again. I bought a serger to upcycle clothes and also discovered sewing with jersey. It was at that point I got a renewed passion for sewing and started drafting/altering patterns and rtw to fit again. Finally I decided to take the plunge and share my creative vision and patterns with others. Let's see where it goes.....
