House and Garden Magazine

July’s edition of House and Garden magazine includes two of my art textile apron pieces in a design feature called Lace it Up.  I can’t show the page here because of copyright but it’s a lovely feature and shows the aprons looking bold and beautiful on a dark green wall.

Selvedge Fair

SV-WF-728x90

The fantastic Selvedge Winter Fair is coming up next week! I have visited the show a few times but this will be my first time exhibiting.  The fair is always amazing. Chelsea Old Town Hall is a stunning building and the main hall, side rooms and corridors are crammed with textile gorgeousness. There are designer-makers, antique textile dealers, sellers of exquisite haberdashery, hand-printed fabrics and so much more. It really is like the magazine brought to life. Wonderful stuff. It will be hard not to spend every penny I take!

My recommendations for this years show include Asa Parsons, John Gillow and Linda Bloomfield. There are loads of people I don’t know too, so I know it will be a treasure hunt – finding new and exciting things. I like the look of Anna Ray,  Avani and Parna.

I’ll be showing my smaller works, perfectly suited for the home. I’m hoping to have new trapunto quilting kits as well (fingers crossed!) and I will have little bits too like a new range of postcards and handmade greeting cards.
