Welcome to Made By Cilla. I have been sewing and knitting and crafting for as long as I can remember. My two grandmothers were my role models who taught me to knit, cook and sew (but could never get the hang of crocheting). I remember sitting on my Farm Granny's lap while she tried to teach me how to knit. She made lots of beautiful items from all different mediums and was a very talented lady. However her colour selections were often a little off as she would create something using whatever leftover wool was laying around. This would make some very 'interesting' items. My Town Granny was the one who showed me the sewing machine. I still remember her old treadle sewing machine in the back room. She would spend school holidays with me making little items. She had a large collection of fabrics that were definitely not the latest fashion colours but as a child I had no clue. We would make our own patterns and she let me loose to choose my fabrics.
