I used to fit all my creative projects around my full-time teaching job, but that all changed when I retired in 2015.  At last I had a little more time on my hands!  I wanted to do something that would be more than just an absorbing hobby - something which would bring lots of pleasure to others and lots of personal fulfillment too.  My husband suggested, 'What about making beautiful rag dolls?'  This wasn’t quite as random as it sounds, as you’ll see if you read on.  The idea inspired me, and I set out straight away, experimenting with fabrics, shapes and colour schemes.  The result is Jemima & Co!
