About

Hej, jeg hedder Birgitte and welcome to my profile :-)
I'm an exhibiting Danish Textile/Fiber Artist and the happy owner of SewDanish-Scandinavian Textile Art, Unique Handmade Supplies www.SewDanish.etsy.com
I'm currently living in a beautiful old historic market town in Suffolk, England

I have been crafting since early childhood and however busy life has been, I've always found time to do just that. Making things energizes me and makes me happy.
I love creating something from "nothing". I often combine and incorporate recycled items and vintage fabric in my products, giving them a new lease on life.

Some years ago, while living in England, I was very furtunate to enroll and complete City and Guilds part 1 and 2 (now diploma) in Patchwork and Quilting as well as several courses in contemporary free style…

Some years ago, while living in England, I was very furtunate to enroll and complete City and Guilds part 1 and 2 (now diploma) in Patchwork and Quilting as well as several courses in contemporary free style machine and creative hand embroidery. Pure Bliss!

I love dying my own fabrics, threads and anything else that can be coloured. I'm very excited about building up textured surfaces from lots of layers of fabric, paper, paint.... almost anything goes. I often work a series of limited editions within a theme, exploring the possibilities. Since each item is handmade, the individual item will always be unique.

I belong to an exhibiting, contemporary textile art group FibreFusion. We have published several workbooks books on contemporary hand and machine embroidery which can be found here: www.FibreFusionArt.etsy.com

As probably, one of the few females around I am always looking forward to the start of The American Football season. Reason being is that while my husband, the author of "Fantasy Football Guidebook" and several other Fantasy Football books, is kept very busy with his passion, I can slip away to my workroom for hours without being missed :-)
