Hello, I'm Moyo I got my first sewing my was at the age of 7 years, and I learnt t to sew. Along the way my sewing journey paused until about 12 years ago when I started sewing again. From the request of friends and youth groups I start giving sewing classes to children and young people over the summer holidays and this has led to e giving sewing classes to adults as well.

Sewing give me great pleasure and I also  enjoy sharing my knowledge, expertise and experience with others. I am an author of three sewing books.
