I am Linda (Lynn) Onions, textile artist and teacher.
I have been sewing for as long as I can remember, I had dreams of being a fashion designer but ended up making curtains and soft furnishings for a living! (Windows don’t change size!)
My initial training was in dressmaking and pattern cutting but my first employed job was as a trainee curtain maker, so I trained, learnt the tricks of the trade and then worked for myself.
Now I teach all different textile skills: dressmaking, patchwork and quilting, embroidery, and soft furnishings, see Classes and Workshops.
I teach from my own workshop in Havant and also at Jolly Stitcher, Fareham and Eastleigh College.
