With Christmas just around the corner I thought it would be great to interview a number of Creative Crafters that can offer something unique at this time of year. This week I am delighted to feature the very talented Lois Billington of May B Sew.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hi I'm Lois Billington. I graduated in 2013 with a foundation degree in costume construction. I volunteer once a week at a local theatre helping out with the costumes and am sometimes on stage.
What sort of creative business do you run?
At the moment my business is based around mini top hats for any event.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to have a go themselves?
My advice would be to organise yourself. Keep receipts of anything you buy or use in your projects to sum up your overall price of your item. Add in time and materials together to make a profit. Organise your time particularly if you’re in either full time or part time work.
Where can we find you?
Thank you, Lois for taking time out of your busy schedule to be interviewed. If you are a creative crafter and would like to be interviewed on a future post in this series please get in contact.
