I am based in Penzance in Cornwall in a workshop full of old singer sewing machines and spotty, stripy, flowery fabric. Me and my little band of stitchers design and make a range of quirky accessories for fashion and the home. We use freehand machine embroidery to draw the designs in stitch onto a variety of products including tea cosies, bags and purses. I have also used my designs to create ceramics, stationery and printed tea towels (so we can have a break from sewing once in a while!)
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
