huswif






I'm busy making for my next fair on 16th May. It is the Selvedge Spring Fair in Stroud. I love stitching these sewing huswifs, filled with vintage finds....this one is made from a wonderfully soft and slightly threadbare piece of vintage quilt. I have more of it left so it will probably pop up on some other makes. It also has an uncharacteristic bit of  bright colour, but the vintage velvet milinery flower seemed too perfect not to use.

On another note, you might like to know there is a little interview with me in the Spring issue of Hoop-la Magazine.

I'm so sorry I cannot come to your sale (geographical issues;) .... would you consider selling the huswif to me via mail order?

Your artistic work is so beautiful. Have you given any thought to doing tutorials? Using "any" material would be exciting for those of us that don't acquire antique cloth and would have to use various other material. The overwhelming finished product would be so rewarding for us to accomplish.
Thanks for sharing you amazing talent.
