Happy New Year!

This site is heading for a spring clean very soon, and the addition of a shop facility. I have been contemplating how best to sell my indigo-dyed yarns online in the simplest way for everyone.
Most skeins are one-offs and it's not practical to photograph and upload every single one! There's also the fact that monitors vary so the shades may look a little different on your screen than they do on mine.
So, I'll just have to try and see what works and what doesn't!

I am in love with colour, texture and pattern. They are an intrinsic part of my life; I focus on them everywhere.

I’ve been ‘making things’ since childhood, hands always busy with salvaged scraps. Using simple tools - needles, scissors, carders, spinning wheel - I make my own intricate colour stories with fibres and fabrics, incorporating new techniques as I learn them and revelling in the process of experimentation.

Handwork is central to my practice. I incorporate diverse textile and book-making techniques, dependent on the quantity and type of materials available.

Textiles and paper are my favourite natural raw materials and ideas for combining them abound, ever more so since visiting India in 2012/2013...
