GAARN – The Magazine for Sewing Culture

Just a quick shout out to Damaris Jakschik for finishing her diploma thesis at Bauhaus-University Weimar, Germany and producing GAARN as a result..... and what a result!

"GAARN is an artful inspiration and a Do it Yourself-magazine that deals with the world of needlework and textile design in a new way. Trends of the modern handcraft along with artists from all over the world, their unique creations and handmade items are introduced. It offers instructions for your own creations as well as a Do it Yourself-section complete with patterns and designs. It also offers individual shopping tips and creative scenes with their places."

GAARN opens a new world for crafters – be's trully wonderful, crammed full of tantilising textiles and lots of fun stuff!!!
Thank you Damaris for featuring my work in your project and I wish you the best of luck with getting it published. The future is bright for GAARN for sure


Love is in the air........♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Valentines Day is nearlly upon us and I have been creating lots of lovey dovey work in the lead up to the special occasion. My new "Love" collection is on show at the gorgeous Palterman & Thomas Gallery in Swansea from the 5th-28th of February

Heres a glimpse at some of my new pieces

Also taking part in the Valentines exhibition is Saloukee aka Sarah Kelly and she is the creator of these sculptured paper-art jewellery. Lots of percise fold and cuts, along with a sensitive touch give Sarahs work a real ephemeral quality and I love it!!

Theres jewellery, trickets and gifts galore all on show at the gorgeous converted Norwegain Church. (see below) So if you are in search for that extra special something for that extra special someone, this show is not to be missed. Drop on by Palterman and Thomas and you wont'be disappointed!!
