Welcome to our Home the Lovely Leggy Lizzy all the way from Bisbee Arizona and Kim from Numinosity beads.....the LL Lizzy is another sister of my darling Augustus, who you may have read about on previous posts ...he has been a little quiet recently as he has found his soulmate, the Gentle Ellen who joined our ever expanding family from Pam at Yoroboro. Augustus and the Gentle Ellen live in my workroom where they can snuggle in the bags of fabrics and listen to radio 4 with me while I work on my glittery creations every evening .....yes folks it's true EVERY evening ...I am textile obsessed and self-confessed colourholic.....there's nothing I can do about it except give in to my passion for all things textiley.....(More on the LLLizzy tomorrow) Hot off the sewing machine and my hand needle tonight are these brooches ....what do ya think ??.....xxx
I am a qualified Textile Teacher but now I am lucky enough to follow my dream being a full time Textile Artist and I love every minute I spend creating in my studio at The West Wing. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
I run workshops for schools, colleges and groups.
I work 1 to 1 with individuals who might want help with basic sewing or more advanced techniques.
Commissions are always welcome please get in touch with me to discuss your requirements. No textile job is too small .....:)
I sell my work through Etsy and you can find me on Facebook at Artymess Textile Art ...come and say hello.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
