Jo Ashcroft


Jo has had a passion for sewing for as long as she can remember. She made her first project, a circular skirt, as the age of 8 and has never looked back.

In 2012, Jo put her career as a Primary Teacher on hold to study pattern making and industrial techniques. She enjoyed it so much that now she runs an alteration and dressmaking business alongside teaching both adults and kids all about the joys of sewing and pattern making.

Come along and join Jo at Rutherford College for an unforgettable experience and discover just how easy and rewarding it is to make your own garments.
