one more bag and cushion !!

Getting ready for Christmas

Yes, its that time of year again when I spend most of my days off, sat at a sewing machine !! Not that thats a bad thing though. Ive got lots of markets and fairs planned for October, November and December so its a busy time. Following that amazing trip to Harris and Lewis earlier on in the year, where I bought lots of beautiful Harris Tweed, I have been putting it to good use. Mixing it with both silk, vintage silk and felt, I have created a collection of bags and cushions.

It also been a busy time planning and organising the Manchester Craft Mafia annual Christmas market at the Whitworth Art Gallery. This year it will be held on saturday 18th December 10am till 4pm. Weve had lots of interest from many crafts people wanting to participate, so it should be a great event.

Latest work

Here are some images of my latest work, I've become a bit obsessed with Harris Tweed and also vintage silk.

The latest news!!

Well I am terrible, can't believe that it has been so long since I have actually added to this blog. So it look like I am again new to blogging but will try and keep it up this time !!

Alot has happened in the last 18 or so months. I have been doing lots of making and selling and will attempt to put some of my latest work on here. I have also been busy doing lots of workshops for both adults and children. I have been working in primary and secondary schools, with various year groups making loads of fantastic things. I am also working with adults with mental health issues, which is combining my love of textiles with my skills in mental health.
