Di believes that everyone should feel able to sew regardless of their background, ability and especially income. Di makes 99% of her clothes and quite a few for her husband, son and wider family.
During the Covid crisis Di made 40 sets of scrubs for her local intensive care unit and then designed a face mask with a 'see through' visor to assist better communication with lip reading and enabling people seeing facial expressions. This community need brought together her passion for sewing and understanding the challenges faced by those with additional needs. Di's smile mask pattern and tutorial are free.
Di has contributed to the Sewover50 community as a guest editor and she had written for sewing magazines including Threads magazine.
