I am Vicki Hibbins, the designer and owner of Bishy Barnababes - creating cute PDF sewing patterns that mum's will love to sew and children will love to wear. I live in Norwich, UK (where a ladybird is called a bishy barnabee) with my husband, daughter, dog and cat.
A Primary teacher for over 20 years and sewing since I was 4 (my grandfather taught me using a Victorian sewing machine), I combine both these passions to make patterns with great instructions that are suitable for beginners upwards. I love sharing my skills and introducing sewers to new techniques - my favourite at the moment being free-motion appliqué. I also produce The Sewing Room podcast where I share the ins and outs of running a pattern company, latest Bishy Barnababes news and the latest creations from my sewing room.
