About me

helen-westerby-2017

Hi, I’m Helen – aka Thredhed.

I’m a pattern maker, designer, knitter, crocheter, sewist, illustrator, mother  – the list goes on….

I’ve over 20 years of  experience in the fashion industry, working for retailers such as Topshop, Reiss, Whistles, Karen Millen, Courtaulds and a lifetime of making .

I had to give up my full time job to look after my young daughter, so now I freelance, teach and do this…

I want to inspire and show you how to make cool stuff.
