Your Memories, Stitched with Love
I started sewing at a young age, on and off, encouraged by my mum, but my passion for it came later....
Michelle Corbin Design was Established in 2010, following the births of my 2 children, previously a Hairdressing Lecturer and Freelance Hair Stylist, I decided that if I was to resume this career path, it would not be so conducive to a growing family and I was keen to be a 'Stay at Home Mum'.
I have always loved being creative and sewing was a big part of my life, whilst growing up, as I watched my mum who taught me the basics, moving I gained more confidence at school, where Textile Art and Textiles Home Ec, were my most successful subjects.
My love of Keepsake Gifts and Accessories came about when my friends twin girl and boy hit the age of 5. I was inspired to make them each a Tooth Fairy Cushion. I soon realised, that Personalised Bespoke items were growing more and more popular and so the Tooth Fairy Cushions lead to a neighbour asking me to create a cushion from her Granddaughters baby clothes which lead to more of what you see today.
Creating Keepsake Heirlooms from Baby Clothing and Pre-Loved Clothes have become one of my most popular and requested items, followed by Personalised and Bespoke Hearts, Embroideries and Tooth Fairy Cushions. Free Motion Embroidery (using the sewing machine needle to draw free hand) and Hand Embroidery, are my first love, and bring the most of my creativity to the for front of my designs.
My aim is to create handmade personalised treasures, to help people to celebrate Special Occasions such as Births, Christenings and Weddings and to add beautiful accessories to their homes in a bright, fresh and unique way, providing heirlooms that can be handed down from generation to generation and so preserving their memories.
