Hi, I am Liz Dane and the founder of Bizzylizzysewz.
I live with my husband and two daughters in Catshill, Bromsgrove.
I have a BA in Surface Pattern Design from Huddersfield University and have been a Textiles teacher for 22 years. When I am not teaching Art, Textiles and Product design at a local secondary school, I love to sew from my beautiful new conservatory in Catshill, Bromsgrove.
I have always loved making things and was inspired by my mother, who used to make her own clothes. Here she is in a lovely red spotty number she made for her 25th Wedding Anniversary.
I love to make things from bits and pieces. I really enjoy the idea and freedom of free machine embroidery and being able to work repeatedly over an area with the sewing machine. I like to recycle fabrics that I find. It is just me and a sewing machine! I especially like making custom gifts for friends and family who are usually my inspiration. I also enjoy making my own clothes and home furnishings. I am a huge fan of 'The Great British Sewing Bee'!
The next chapter is starting my own sewing school here in Catshill. Here you can learn to sew with my beginners classes or develop your skills further through sew along classes with my guidance. Or if you prefer to work with others on a new project these will be coming soon.
