Hello. My name is Irina Charnley, I come from Omsk in Siberia. I was a seamstress there for 30 years and moved to England some time ago.

I worked from home but as my business grew I needed larger premises. I moved to my shop in Gosport and never looked back. When I originally settled here I thought at first my trade was not needed. Unlike Russia so many items were off the peg, however I soon found out that there was indeed a need for my talent.

I was the seamstress for Omsk Ballet School which took a lot of my time up but so proud that my creations were to be seen on stage in front of hundreds of people.

…If it’s fabric let me do the fabrication.
Nothing is impossible.
