JBM My Amazing Mum

My Mum aka JBM never fails to amaze me with her ability to do everything. I have always been hugely inspired by my mum and get so much support and love for everything I do. Working full time in London JBM also loves to quilt, applique and has recently re-discovered a love of dressmaking. I am unsure which one of us is more pleased about the creation of Staystitching, we finally have access to great fabrics and we are not afraid to use them.

I know my mum loves to sew and she has a sewing room and fabric shed to contain her huge stash but having moved out of my Mum’s home over 10 years ago had not realised quite how special the stash was. I am fast realising where my obsession with fine fabrics comes from. Since I showed her the Tula Pink Hushabye and Plume fabrics from Devon I have been getting daily updates as she finds more and more FQ's of Tula Pink fabrics in the stash.

JBM came into the shop to see me at the weekend and was carrying a big bag containing some quilt tops she is working on, one of them was a lap quilt made using tiny pieces of Tula Pink Plume fabric, soo special. You can read more about what JBM is sewing over at her blog -  Quilt therapy

  1. Hi Katy! So nice to hear from you again. I guess you've been busy with your business, I hope it's going well.
    Your mum seems really cool, and it's great that you share the same interest. I got my interest in sewing from my mum too.
    Have a great day!
