A fabric collage made in exchange for a beautiful sewing machine I got off freecycle. The machine had belonged to the Lady in the collage her name was Alice Frances Kinder and she had been a dressmaker all her life. I made this for her son who was parting with the machine but it obviously held precious memories for him he said he remembered turning the hand wheel while his Mother sewed. She lived past her nineties and continued sewing all through her life.
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 .....
I have been a Textile artist all my life but only been trying to make a living from it since I was made redundant from my teaching job last year. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
