The bastard child of Doris Day and Germaine Greer, Miss Alison is obsessed with making things. This includes, but is not exclusive to, knitting vintage cardigans, sewing summer frocks, simmering lemon curd and constructing the perfect sentence.
Miss Alison’s loves books and the people who write them, the three minute pop-song and the people who sing them, vintage frocks and handbags, Hamish the Cat (who is no longer with us) and Calamity (who is). She puts pedal to the metal on an Elna 1000 and a Husqvarna Viking – and exceeds the speed limit on both. An introvert by nature, she is not often spotted ‘outside’ – but her heart belongs to Skein Sisters, Campos Baristas, New York City, small bars, independent bookstores and Sufjan Stevens.
Miss Alison is not to be trifled with, nor taken too seriously.
