A Passion for Making.

Hi, I’m Helene! I come from a family of tailors, dressmakers, and machinists going back – as far as I know – to my great grandfather. I don’t earn a living from sewing as they did, but I do love to sew and knit, and while I’ve been sewing since I was 15, this site serves as a record of my makes since 2010. Hope you enjoy following along.

hi there! I’m Helene.

I’ve sewn garments for myself and for my daughters when they were kids, and recently I discovered Susan Khalje and couture sewing, and it’s been a gamechanger for me.
