About Rachel

Holm Sown was set up by Rachel Seed in 2015.  After taking up dressmaking as a hobby in the last 10 years using blogs for support, Rachel was keen to provide a fun and friendly venue where people who were interested in starting sewing, or looking to get back into it, could come and shop and learn.  Although her background in Mechanical Engineering isn’t directly applicable, the challenge of constructing a pattern is very similar!  After 10 years in consultancy the shop is a very welcome change in direction.
