Janis Hobbs once ran her own children’s clothing shop, but has now taken her business online, having expanded into clothing design and alterations for all ages.
At the age of 13 Janis first ventured into sewing when she made her own school uniform – a summer dress – and later went on to attend regular sewing classes at night school. She has a passion for making dresses and tunics, and is always drawn to autumn colours: tans, greens and browns. Of late she has been experimenting more with blue shades.
She confesses she couldn’t live without her seam ripper whilst using the sewing machine.
