Barley Massey has been sewing from a young age. Before setting up Fabrications she worked on textiles and costumes for film and TV. She brings her wealth of sewing experience to the classes she teaches. The inspiration for this t-towel came about from observation and teaching. The fabric 'handout' enables students to practice different techniques, cut it up and sew back together and to have notes to refer to after the class.
