Three shows this Autumn – pop in and say hi…

Autum is a busy season for us and I’m going to be exhibiting in three different shows in three different locations in the next few months. If you are nearby – pop in and say hi.

MANCHESTER 4th to the 7th October. I will be exhibiting with The Crafts Council’s Hothouse Alumni on stand HH05 at the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair – Spinningfields.

13 artists and designer makers from years one and two of the Crafts Council’s Hothouse Emerging Makers programme are sharing an exhibition space.

For more info on exhibitors and how to get there please visit:

FARNHAM – Farnham Maltings – Festival of Crafts 20th and 21st October
I will be exhibiting with members of the Farnham Maltings Textiles Network. We have our own designated area within the festival in the dance studios.

LONDON – Selvedge – Old Chelsea Town Hall – 10th November

I am excited to announce (as I am a fan of the textile magazine Selvedge) that I am taking part in their Winter Fair at their new location of Old Chelsea Town Hall on the Kings Road.

It’s a one day fair so make sure you come and see us between 10am and 4pm.


New Stockist for Autumn/Winter 2012-13

It’s been fun dropping off new work to new stockists. The latest stockists are Liscious in Oxford and WCD – Walter Castellazzo Design in Highgate, London. Both venues are stocking Emma’s painted scarves and her latest designs –  100% wool painted cushions.

The cushions are made from 100% soft lambwool spun in a Scottish Mill. Once knitted by Emma in her studio, they are hand painted using a special textile print process which strips the colour from the yarn.  The combination of the hand print and wash process creates a unique cushion with a colourful painterly effect which distorts the regularity of the knitted stripe.

Watch this space for new stockists. Cushions and scarves will be available at the following shows later this year: The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair – Manchester 4th to the 7th Oct, Festival of Crafts – Farnham 20th and 21st October and The Selvedge Winter Fair – London 10th November.

…and don’t forget items are still available at Handmade in the Oracle Shopping Centre – Reading until the 1st November.
