About Lynn

Taught to sew on my Grandmother’s knee, I have been sewing since the tender age of three! My first sewing machine was a present from Mum when I was in my teens and that was when I became totally hooked on the endless possibilities of patchwork!

A qualified staff nurse and midwife, my lifelong passion for sewing officially ‘took over’ when the doors to Love Stitching opened in September 2012.

I obtained my first City and Guilds Certificate in ‘Soft Furnishings’ in 2008 and completed my second City and Guilds Certificate in ‘Patchwork and Quilting’ in 2016 – a lot of work but well worth it as I am able to provide our Love Stitching Ladies with expert advice at all stages of their patchwork journey.

Having been a patchworker for almost thirty years myself, I know the importance of only using quality supplies which is why Love Stitching only stocks 100% ‘premium grade’ cotton patchwork fabrics from our trusted suppliers Moda and Makower UK.

Thank you for visiting our site.

I look forward to welcoming you soon!
