Welcome to Tied with a Ribbon - I'm Jemima Flendt. Since I can remember I have always been around fabrics and crafts. My grandmother used to teach me to crochet and mum was always making at her sewing machine. I have grown up to love and be inspired by all things fabric, textiles, buttons, ribbons and embellishments. My own two girls are now very much involved in their own crafting and stitching passions.
I started quilting when I was about 16 - making quilts from leftover scraps from Mum's sewing projects. I was quickly hooked and then started to take classes to learn all about different quilting techniques and skills.
As a Home Economics Teacher I have been able to combine my love of teaching with my love of baking as well as sewing.
I started Tied with a Ribbon to create the direction in which I could pursue this love. I have been running Quilting and Sewing classes, Retreats and Workshops as well as contributing to several publications with projects over the past few years. It is a great buzz to encourage others to develop a love for sewing and stitching.
