a bit about me…..

…..and what I get up to in my workshop.
I customise items of clothing that I find in charity shops. I decorate and embellish them with fabric and turn ordinary garments into very special pieces. I’ve been collecting fabric for almost 30 years so I’ve got a lot to choose from.

I also add buttons to them which I make with my partner Steve. They’re made from resin which is a messy, sticky business so I leave that bit to Steve, and I do the arty decorative bits.

I also make textile accessories – scarves, bracelets and brooches.

Another thing I make is textile art to decorate you home, bunting, hooplas and framed art.

So, in a nutshell I’m a textile artist and a button maker. Pleased to meet you.
