Mr Darcy Loses The Plot

19 Jul

I’ve had lots of fun working again with Avenue Crafters and Crumpsall Craft Crew, plus Full Circle&friends from Oldham Coliseum stitching a patchwork stage backdrop for Lip Service’s hilarious new comedy Mr Darcy Loses the Plot, inspired by the works of Jane Austen.

Thanks to everyone who got involved with this patchwork challenge and if you are interested in adding to this magnificent stage backdrop, just visit Lip Services website for all the info.

A Stitch in Time

7 Dec

Over the last couple of months I have had the pleasure to work with members from the Avenue Craft Group and Crumpsall Craft Crewe to create two textile wallhangings entitled A Stitch in Time. The brief was to incorporate and showcase the many different types of textile crafting techniques and stitches that the members utilise, whilst also depicting local and well loved landmarks, both historic and modern.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with the groups and as well as learning much more about their local areas, was thoroughly impressed by the skill and stitching expertise of the group members. The resulting colourful wall hangers (that can be displayed seperately, or together) are not only eye catching, they also encourage the viewer (whatever their age!) to look closely to spot all the flora&fauna on display and also to see if the local landmarks in Heaton park and Boggart Hole Clough can be spotted.

and if you are tempted to buy, and I hope you are; there’s a 5% discount on all my quilts at Make it British http://makeitbritish.co.uk/ until the end of the year.

Today the wintry weather is being particularly lousy, so wrapping up in a cosy quilt and hibernating at home is just what is needed.
