A crafty journey
I'm a fully qualified horticulturist and worked as a designer with my husband for several years in his landscape and maintenance business. My hobbies were equally creative and have now taken over my life - in a nice and very rewarding way.
My great loves are spinning and dyeing. I teach and talk about these and often demonstrate at craft shows and events with other members of the West Essex & East Herts Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers. I actually started with knitting when I was 17 - a craft I have now returned to. My recent (well 17 years ago) return to textiles started with crochet - a craft about which I am passionate - I think it's much under rated, and am glad to see it having a revival and reinvention.
I now have an Etsy shop selling hand dyed yarn and fibre plus other hand crafted items, a Spoonflower shop for my fabrics and a shop on Zazzle with a wide range of gifts featuring my designs. To learn more about my shops click here.
