Meet Your Host

Rebecca Page is the founder of the hugely popular sewing brand, www.rebecca-page.com.

She learnt to sew as a child and loved it. But as the years passed, she found traditional paper patterns hard to use (that tissue paper tears so easily!), the instructions difficult to follow and fitting for personal shape almost impossible.

Rebecca found the solution when she started to draft her own patterns part-time at home while having her 3 young children. It’s quickly exploded into a global business with 500,000+ followers and 31 lovely team members (all working from home around the world!).
