My studio is on the picturesque north east coast of Scotland, which is shown on the shop banner - that's Cullen Bay. I have for sale a range of hand knitted and crocheted items, including accessories and garments, and a collection of my own original paintings.
I have been making things by hand since my early childhood. First it was drawing and painting, then 3-D cardboard modelling with old corrugated card boxes. After that I taught myself to stitch clothes for my dolls by hand, using recycled cloth from my mum's rag-bag of worn out clothes, household linens and furnishing fabrics, and I have always enjoyed making new uses of cast-off materials. I learned to knit when I was seven, and was 18 when I received my first sewing machine. At that point a relative introduced me to the joys of dressmaking, enabling me to produce well-made and fashionable items for myself and others…
