Diane has taught dressmaking in the Huntingdonshire area for over ten years, building a network of ex-students and contacts who were always asking her where they could obtain fabrics, patterns and other items.  Realising there was a gap in the market, Diane decided to meet the need and open her own store.

“I was brought up sewing as my mother was a needlework teacher and my grandmother a tailoress.  Sewing seemed to be getting more popular and there was nothing in the immediate area supplying dressmakers so I decided to take a gamble and do something I enjoyed,” she explained.

Diane started Bobb-In & Sew, a one-stop dressmaking, fabric and haberdashery shop that stocks: “around 4000 patterns – Vogue, Butterick and McCalls, books, ribbons/bias tapes and other trimmings, items for bag making, soft toy kits for stocking fillers, sewing kits and boxes to store them in.”  Some fabrics are from Designers, such as Armani, Paul Smith, D&G, FCUK, Burberry, Missoni and Hugo Boss.  A vast range of Haberdashery items, Gutermann Threads and more!
