Comfy bum, Feet up, with a nice piece of cake and a wonderful cup of tea.

It all started with my lovely mum, she used to make our clothes when we were young, I was the last of seven, so hand-me-down where my best friend. This gave me a love of clothes and the skill to take things in and the know-how to make do and mend. My mum she was a bright star and would love to bake up a storm, with her warming westindian rum cake in hand she would bring a bright smile to our little faces;-)

I loved watching my mum turn her had to all those wonderful thing in the home, this made her my hero. The products that I create are all because of my mum. She put so much love in the things she created, my favourite was always her cakes.
Because she wanted to create a comfortable home for us, her actions and passion have inspired me to create homeware products.

Quilting Mafia was founder by textile artist Elizabeth Oniri, it came about because she was faced with a small sink filled with a large pile of dirty dishes, her pet peeve (smile) unable to face it she decided to find ways that would encourage her to do the washing up and enjoy it. She has always had a passion for all things textile and wanted to use that passion to overcome her lack of enthusiasm for domesticity. So the first luxury tea cloth was born and she has extended her range to art cloths, table cloths (not wanting to clean up after guest) wall hang (to hide marks on the walls) cushions (because the sofa was getting old) and fabric post cards to send to love one’s. All pieces are handmade and are one-off's made from recycled, new and gifted fabrics. All pieces are either made using a sewing machine or by hand. I tend use’s nature fabrics to create just because I loves the way in which they feel and respond to manipulation. I must admit that sometimes I do use man made fabrics they are usually vintage fabrics. I also runs workshops in schools and museums and accepts commissions.
