I am a bird biologist turned fabric designer. I particularly specialised in studying seabirds but I love all birds and nature. I have always been creative and enjoy many crafts, but my favourite has always been patchwork. So, when I decided to change my career and pursue one in design, I knew it had to be designing patchwork fabrics. My designs are very much influenced by my previous career and my passion for nature, and so mostly feature birds and their habitats.
It was my first time at Craft4crafters last October and it was such a great experience that I’m back for more this April! I’m back with new designs, as promised, so as well as my Spring garden fabric collection, I now have the other three seasons to make the set: Winter hedgerow, Summer meadow and Autumn woodland. Each season features nine birds and five complimentary plant fabrics. All are available as fabrics or kits. Of course, I will still be selling my popular puffins, penguins and mini kits.
If you love wildlife and crafts as much as me, then my stand is for you. See you there!
