Quirky and contemporary textile art and gifts.

Leigh, England

Announcement    I love to experiment with colour and texture, and my work incorporates a lot of collage and mixed media. I am a little obsessed with crochet at the minute and it will often find it's way into my work in one way or another.
I am a big fan of vintage and love the idea that items have stories behind them.

About APatchworkedAcorn

Sales 2
On Etsy since 2016

I am a textile artist working with an assortment of materials, including fabric, yarn, paper, and paint.
I graduated from the University of Huddersfield in 1997 with a First Class honours degree in knitted textiles, and after graduating spent time working as a designer for a spinning and dyeing company in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
After getting married and subsequently becoming a mum to three boys, I have spent the last few years working on personal projects and exploring ideas for new pieces.
I am inspired by all sorts of everything but love anything with a vintage feel and the idea of the stories behind old items.
Old derelict buildings intrigue me, and I love the fantasy about them.
I am also inspired by fossils and fairytales and the idea that we age not by years but by stories.
