Welcome

Hello,

and welcome to my textile treasure house!

I am a dyer, a stitcher, a maker, a sharer and a lover of words. I hand dye natural fibre yarns using indigo and a range of coloured dyes. I create unique stitching kits and packs to enable and encourage stitchers at all levels.

Explore the shop for these and more, try a workshop, read my tales, invite me to talk to your group …

💙 indigo threads🧵

This might be a ‘winding tiny skeins’ afternoon while listening to something less gruesome than my last book 😳
I’m in multi tasking mode but none of it is  photogenic so here’s a lovely new euphorbia in the garden instead.

I received a big fat package from afar, packed full of hand spun handwoven indigo dyed ‘’stuff’. 

I will show you more in a couple of months!😉

Full of breakfast and in absolutely no hurry to go out for a walk…
