“The work of creativity I probably draw it from my father who was an upholster. When I came to Ireland I worked for Bewleys cafe as catering assistant. Then moved to health care. It was 10 years in Ireland that I went on a first date with my boyfriend now my husband who was mesmerised by what I was wearing. When I told him I made the garment he was so surprised and thought I had hidden talent and ask what machine I needed I said “overlocker” he bought me one as a present rest is history.”
