"boss" Jo and "fixer" Steven

creative director and company secretary

Hi, I’m Jo who with my husband Steven created Sew Creative. My passion has always been textiles and creativity; Sew Creative is everything my sewing room would be, full of wonderful fabric to share. Our proudest moment is when a customer returns with our fabric “alive” as a garment, quilt, cushion, bag, bunting, hat, anything!

I am Steven, I have loved working with Jo and the team to realise her fantastic vision for Sew Creative and to see the wonderful customer response. Having hardly ever sewn a button on before, I am learning new things every day. I now know the ‘ins and outs of a sewing machine’ and have even made my own waistcoat!
