Yarns and Fabrics is a fusion of my love of yarn, fabric, embroidery threads and colour. I have been a knitter for over 40 years. I fell in love with textiles, embroidery and dyeing. I often make my own pure wool felt using the wet felting method. I love to stitch by hand, machine or using an embellishing machine.
I create unique fabrics, yarns and threads that are hand dyed. The fabrics include luxurious materials such as pure silk and velvet. I dye many different types of threads including silk and cotton. The colours lift these hand dyed yarns, threads and fabrics out of the ordinary. You can make your work more individual and create something unique by using my hand dyed supplies.
I also use my own hand dyed fabrics and threads to create textile art and practical gifts that are a joy to receive. I have so far created a collection of hearts, fabric jewellery cuffs and a range of iPad, Macbook, iPhone covers.
My love of colour also shows in my art – I paint canvases that reflect the emotion I feel when I take up a paint brush. I interpret the landscape around me.
I enjoy the journey of making things from scratch. You never know where the process might lead. Currently I am engaged in a journey of discovery that is learning from the past to forge a new future.
My work has featured in some of the UK’s top sewing/craftwork magazines. The company is based in Sheffield.
