I set up Sew Over It in May 2011, with one main aim – to teach as many people as I possibly could how to sew!
I fell in love with sewing aged 11 when I made my first skirt. A year later my parents gave me a sewing machine and I have never looked back since.
Despite being teased for my “uncool” hobby, I persevered and carried on sewing. After studying at the London College of Fashion I worked for British designer Bruce Oldfield and then bridal couture designer Phillipa Lepley.
I set up Sew Over It in a response to the growing feeling that sewing was becoming a lost skill. I hope that I can pass on my passion for sewing through Sew Over It and encourage more people in London to pick up a needle and thread!

Since opening Lisa has published two books, Sew It, Wear It, Love It – an intro to sewing for beginners, and Sew Over It Vintage – a beginner’s guide to making your own vintage inspired patterns. She has also appeared on the Alan Titchmarsh Show and Kirstie’s Vintage Home. She guest edited Mollie Makes’ DIY Fashion bookazine and writes columns for Sew Magazine, Prima and Simply Sewing.
