Over the past 6 months I’ve been working on a project called Threads – more info about the project in this previous post – and since January I’ve been working hard on what the exhibition will look like and how I will curate all the work that participants have produced during the making sessions. At first […]
I sell my work online through Folksy, a fast growing website selling work from British craftspeople and makers. It’s a really friendly and supportive place to sell work and I’d encourage you to have a look around and support the shops selling there, even if it’s just by buying a card or other small item […]
I came up with the idea for Threads earlier this year. I thought it would be great to do something collaborative with the curve stitching technique and to combine this with an exploration of what happens to conversations while groups of people are making together. I’ve been interested in this group dynamic since visiting an […]
Here’s my stall from Saltaire Maker’s Fair. It’s taken me too long to get around to writing about it but I had a brilliant two days there in September. The quality of the work was extremely good, although as usual I only got to whizz around quickly to look at everything! I met some lovely makers, including […]
I’m having an Open House on the weekend of the 28/29/30 November. There will be an evening party on Friday 28th from 6pm and then I’ll be open from 11am – 7pm on Saturday and Sunday. The kettle will be on pretty constantly, I will no doubt do some baking, and there’ll be wine and […]
I’m contacting lots of stockists across the UK at the moment (hopefully in time for Christmas!) so it was great timing when an email dropped into my inbox about a Folksy and Design Network North’s Meet the Buyer event on 20th October. A couple of weeks to really get my act together then!
After a busy summer with Chapel Allerton Arts Festival I’m starting to get my head around Christmas (I know, far too early for things to be actually in the shops but have to at least think about it now!) and potential new stockists for my curve stitching. I’m looking to widen my geographical area so am […]
Folksy is a UK website that is dedicated to selling the work of British designers and makers. There’s some really great stuff on there (including my pictures now!) so it’s a brilliant place to find a unique gift, some great art and interesting clothes/accessories – all handmade.Here’s a link to my shop if you’d like to have […]
Work all hung (well, shelved really!) ready for the Same But Different Art Fair this weekend. There’s a really great selection of work there, hope it goes well for everyone.
I’ll be selling framed curve-stitch pictures at this art fair and they’ll be priced between £30 and £200. I’m having a lot of fun experimenting with new curve-stitch designs and colours – a particularly lovely daffodil yellow got me all giddy during last week’s sunshine. There’s also a lot more than just the art exhibition going on at the fair; there […]
