Most of my work is commissions for keepsakes, but I have a deep love of all textiles, and a need to connect the past, when textiles were expensive and treasured, with today’s sustainable sensibilities.

Reclaimed, refashioned and repurposed, Magpies Laundry gives that ethos a contemporary, relevant twist. Drawing on traditional textile art techniques of patchwork, applique, embroidery and quilting, I experiment with colour, texture, technique and stitch …. the pieces that I love the most, and meet the high standards I set myself, can be found here, in my Etsy shop.
