Being a spinner, knitter, dyer, weaver, dressmaker and image consultant I love using these skills to make smart clothing (that fits well) and accessories that are special. Here I show:
- The stories, the processes, helpful hints and tips
- The textile heritage of Norfolk, my home county and Shetland also dear to my textile heart.
An example of the story I like my clothes and accessories to tell is shown below. (Each stage described below the pictures.)
Beginning with Shetland sheep in Shetland. They produce yarn of amazingly fine quality, to the Shetland yarns which I have seen made in the mill. Weaving the cloth, checking the drape of the fulled fabric and cutting out the custom pattern. The finished tailored skirt and the vintage detail button.
