Christine Leech

An avid crafter since childhood, Christine is a talented maker and designer who can turn her hand to almost any craft.

Christine Leech has been an avid crafter since childhood, sewing menageries of of felt animals, wardrobes of dolls' dresses and has always refused to buy a greetings card when a handmade one could be sent instead.  Aged five she won first prize for Best Hemmed Handkerchief in the Ringmer Village Flower and Produce Show, which she still considers to be her proudest achievement.  As a grown-up, she now has over fifteen years' experience designing and art directing a host of women's magazines, most recently working as Creative Director of the acclaimed Marie Claire Runway.  When not writing top-notch craft books, Christine divides her time between this and blogging about all things creative at www.sewyeah.co.uk.

Christine co-created the bestselling book Everything Alice: The Wonderland Book of Makes and Bakes and Everything Oz: The Wizard Book of Makes and Bakes, which introduced a truly groundbreaking approach to craft.  One day soon she hopes to return to Ringmer to claim the cup for Best In Show.
