Welcome to Sewing at Damgate! My name is Kate Pannett – seen here on a rain-lashed beach on the Isle of Wight.
Sewing at Damgate is mostly about sewing! And some knitting and a bit of writing. I live in Martham on the east coast of Norfolk, very close to the grey North Sea. My main aim has been to develop practical sewing workshops which are relaxed, informative and reasonably priced. Often the best way to learn is to have someone show you a particular technique and then suddenly it all makes perfect sense.
Since leaving school I have been a costume maker, a student, self-employed (sewing), a stay at home mum of four, a primary school teacher and now a dressmaking tutor in adult education. And always fancied writing a novel before discovering the blogging world.
