About your sewing tutor, Caroline Lomax

Hello and welcome to YouStitch.

I’m Caroline, I started sewing when I was at school. This continued when I got married and needed curtains in my first home with my husband. 

I have run a professional workroom for over 25 years, working with local and award-winning interior designers as well as my private clients. I have also assisted architects on interior design with reference to soft furnishings. During this period, I have amassed a wealth of experience and knowledge about the industry and the techniques and skills involved. I have trained staff and friends enabling them to acquire the knowledge required to either gain employment in the industry or furnish a beautiful home.

5 years ago, I launched an outdoor garden furniture company called Armadillo Sun, utilising my industry knowledge, the best materials, and skilled hand-made craftsman, I now design and manufacture garden furniture here in Kent.  

Creating your own soft furnishings can not only be cost effective but can bring you a great deal of satisfaction and pride.

The process from an undressed plain window to a beautifully dressed window, with either a contemporary blind with pelmet, or a pair of traditional hand headed curtains on a beautiful pole, can be creative and fun.

So, in Autumn 2022, and following a request from many avenues, I decided to run various training courses to hopefully impart what I have learnt in my 25-year journey.

I do hope to see you on one of the courses soon.

Best wishes, Caroline.
