The wonderful work of June ...

Today I want to introduce you to the lovely work of June from Nancy Jeannie Handmade on Facebook.  June shares a love for sewing and all things vintage.

I hope you have a coffee so you can sit down and enjoy June's Story ...

My daughter and I wanted to do something to showcase our passion for sewing, so we ventured into the online world and started our facebook page in February 2012.

I have been sewing nearly all my life starting as a small child on my grandmother's knee with the old treadle sewing machine hemming hankies.

Nancy Jeannie is part of Mum's name, hence the name of our facebook site.  She did a lot of patching and re-used fabric from some of her clothes.  Once she made me a costume from part of her wedding dress.  I LOVED it !

Making handbags if my first love and making clothes for my daughter Vanessa and 6 grand children brings me great joy.  I'm inspired by colours in nature and love birds.  We are very fortunate to live in a place where we have an abundance of both.

I have met many wonderful artisans since joining facebook and they continue to inspire me.
