Angela Kane Sewing Pattern Designer - sewing with a childhood friend in 1957


Let's bring back sewing baskets. If you have children at home who are keen to get busy with sewing, make a little sewing box, maybe from a shoe box and collect together some sewing paraphernalia.

See my Sewing Supplies Page - please keep ordering online. You will help these businesses to survive!

UK Lockdown
And For Wherever You Are in the World!

We all have to get down to basics and that means getting back to making things. It's good for mindfulness. It's good for the planet. It's good for your budget. Most of all it makes you feel good!

There has been plenty in the press about this and I hope my site can offer you the resources to get you going.

All my tutorials are free. Join for access to all my classic sewing patterns.

This is me sewing with my friend, probably in 1957. I would have been nine and my friend is a year younger. This is the same friend who photographed me ten years later. See the previous photograph.

So, supporting all 70 plus year olds across the world who are staying at home, it’s a great time to learn new skills or update old ones.

Angela Kane Designer History Vogue Pattern 1968

Sewing Memories

If your children are grown up and you won’t be seeing them, you have time on your hands. Get the album out send them some pictures about you that they may have forgotten or may never have seen!

This year I am celebrating 10 years of sewing on YouTube, 15 years of sewing patterns online, 25 years since I set up machine knitwear online, nearly 50 years since I was making machine knits to sell in Bond Street and around about 60 years of sewing clothes for myself.

This is probably a Vogue Pattern. I made it up in a lovely pink bouclé wool and it would have been around 1968. I was photographed by a dear friend who was studying photography at the time.

Have fun and get creative.
