A few packs available today ...
I will be printing onto purchased plain cottons in the future, as I have run out of vintage fabrics from my own personal collection.   There will, however, be the odd vintage pieces here and there when I can source appropriate fabrics.

Hello,
recent works, all based on beautiful, old envelopes.   A real challenge to stitch and work around the interesting writing, type and stamps, but thoroughly enjoyable.



 All available in my Etsy shop.

Hello,
here we have some of the work created by the ladies that came along to the 
'Haberdashery Brooch' Workshop at Unit Twelve Studio, Staffordshire.  Delivered by yours truly.
We had a super friendly, creative day...I thoroughly enjoyed every moment.













 Many of the pieces included small personal mementos, like Meg's lovely work above.

 I have been very happy to accept invitations to deliver forthcoming workshops at some very exciting venues.   For example, Hope and Elvis in Nottinghamshire, this coming October and 
Selvedge Magazine Shop, London in January 2017.   
At the top of this Blog, I have 'hens teeth events' link for further details of workshops I will be delivering...if you fancy joining me, for a day of fun and stitch.

Thanks for stopping by. X

 Hello,
I hope all is well with you and yours.
Well, a week has flown by since the close the The Contemporary Craft Festival
After 6 months of preparation, the Festival is all over in a blink of an eye.   I think the best part of the show was meeting up with old friends, making new friends and chatting to visitors.   I was up against the most incredible competition.   So much stunning and very desirable contemporary craft.
Here is my stand, that my current husband created for me.   I was really pleased with the look of the stand, as I wanted an English, month of June, garden theme.   The only change I would make if ever there is a next time, would be to spend the money and hire a much bigger stand.    The weather had been very changeable with heavy downpours, so visitors arrived laden with rain coats, brollies, bags etc...so unfortunately, the 2 x 2m stand would only accommodate a couple of people at a time.   All a rich learning curve, I would say.




Other Exhibitor links below...you may already know, but whose work is to me, is exquisite.
