About Me


My Name is Freya May and I like to make my own clothes.

My mum taught me to sew when I was young, but I didn't make my first dress until I was 16.  I've still got it and you can read about it here.  I didn't touch a sewing machine for ages until Mum bought me a sewing machine for Christmas in 2010.  I wasn't 100% sure that I wanted one, until I set it up and I haven't been able to put it away since!

After working in retail since the age of 16, I opened a small haberdashery and workshop in Leicester City Centre with a business partner- she teaches sewing workshops and I run the shop.  It's my dream job! 

My husband, David, and I have been married for almost six years, and we've been dating since I was 17.  He is awesome, smart and handsome (if I do say so myself), and really encourages me to sew and improve my skills.  

One of my favourite things about blogging is the social aspect, so please contact me if you'd like to; my email address is freyamaymakes (at) gmail (.) com

And I'm on Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Thanks for stopping by!
