I've started updating the site with information on the events and workshops I'm attending over the next few months. Click here to find out more.

I've FINALLY begun to sell my patterns online.  Visit the patterns page for more details, or go straight to my Etsy shop or my Folksy shop.  I've also added a new page with my contact details (which you can also find at the bottom of each page).

We're in the middle of the Patchings Festival at the moment - well worth a visit if you're in the area, with over 150 art and craft exhibitors (including materials and demonstrations!).  I've also updated the website with our summer textile workshop programme.

Don't forget, the Nottingham Bear Fair is on Easter Monday - 5th April!


The snow resulted in a low turnout for the beading class this month, so it's been rescheduled for 13th February.  To find out more and book your place, click here.

Hello to everyone from a very cold and snowy Nottingham.  We've finalised the Spring workshop dates, adding a workshop in traditional rag-rug making and a fun class using needle felting and Dorset buttons to embellish a bag.  To find out more and book your place, click here.

Happy New Year!  The January issue of the Beadworkers Guild Journal has landed on the doormat, and includes my Saraguro Necklace design.  If you're interested in trying more with this technique, why not join me at Charisma Beads in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, where I will be teaching Saraguro netted doilies in March?
