About Us .......

Eileen Sews is an independent, home  based business owned by me, Eileen Fac. 


About my work

I always say that if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well and I don’t believe in short changing my customers by doing a shoddy job, so everything I do is carried out to a very high standard.  I like to see the smile on faces as I hand back their items and so I take great pride in everything I do.

Home Visits

A number of my customers  welcome the option of the Home Visit, especially those that are housebound or have mobility issues.  

My mum, for example, doesn’t like the hassle involved in using shop changing rooms and occasionally need help fastening zips etc. so loves it when I call in on her to discuss her needs. We can chat at length about what needs doing and she is much more comfortable knowing that she is in her own surroundings.

If you would like a Home Visit, please get in touch with me and we can arrange a visit.  I’ll even bring the biscuits!



About me .......

I was born in Gibraltar in 1955 and have been handling a needle since I was 18 months old, when my mother, to keep me occupied while she nursed my baby sister, would give me a selection of buttons  that I would sew onto a  piece of scrap fabric.  As I grew older, my knowledge of sewing increased and improved, as did my projects.  Dress making has been a major part of my life for many years but I have enjoyed many types of needlework from appliqué to counted cross stitch and I love trying any new craft that I come across.



Knitting is another of my passions (My dad taught me how to knit when I was 5 and all my dolls proudly wore my fashions!!). I remember spending  many nights sitting with mum knitting jumpers etc for the family.  When I was 11, I taught myself to crochet and read a pattern and am often found outside of my sewing room, with either a pair of knitting needles in my hands or a crochet hook in my fingers.  




Watch this space !!

I want to be different and unique and so as the web site and business develops, I have plans for the future. I will be adding a knitting and crocheting service where we will knit your bespoke jumper or cardigan to your pattern and yarn.

I also want to include various different ideas.  Crocheted baby bootees with a twist and quirky baby and toddler shoes and slippers are some of the things I am pondering over.

The sky’s the limit as far as development goes so keep watching this space!
