Hello....

My name is Claire Player and I live in a beautiful old Sunday School House in the Yorkshire Hills.  I love antique cameos and rice pudding, Clark Gable movies and red shoes, vintage buttons and summer picnics, but most of all I love to sew.    

I have good sewing genes, for sure. One of my grandmothers was a milliner and one was an expert home tailoress and I grew up in a happy house that was always full of dressmaking. However with marriage and a family there seemed little time for sewing until we set off on an adventure in 2002 to Russia and here began my long apprenticeship with the needle.
