    Make-Do-Mend attend the market on the first Saturday of the month.

    Maria has spent her life sewing, with childhood memories of summer holidays with her mum and grandma making clothes for herself or her dolls, "it's just what we did!" She studied Fashion & Textiles at college and in her twenties working in the fashion trade: on the factory floor, in the fabric cutting room and as a grader and pattern cutter during a season when manufacturing was gradually moving away from Britain.  Early this century "boy does that make me feel old!" she moved into teaching and became a course leader for a BTEC National Diploma in Fashion and Clothing at our local FE college on Oxpens Rd.  Maria took voluntary redundancy from teaching about five years ago, when she was reminded about a prophetic word she was given as a teenager, about being Dorcas, a Bible character who was a dressmaker, a disciple and who helped the poor.  She decided there was more to it than where she currently was.
