Weaving in the Surrey Hills

I moved to live in Frensham in the beautiful Surrey Hills back in 2002.
I have worked in large businesses as an accountant and then business consultant, for most of my career, but have now decided to concentrate on doing something that I enjoy - which is more creative.
I found weaving about 6 years go, and taught myself to weave on my 8 shaft Louet Jane 70 cm table loom.
I have recently taken delivery of a Louet Spring II 110cm 12 shaft floor loom, which I am gradually getting to grips with and enjoying my continuing weaving journey !

I love using fine yarns such as silk and bamboo and also Tencel. I have recently discovered linen and the ability to mix different hand together to make delicious fabrics.
I also have a passion for jewel-like colours,

In addition to weaving, I have recently started my dressmaking again, and enjoy making pretty dresses for my 5 year old granddaughter and also myself.

I also knit and crochet - so as you can see, I love all things textile!

My “weaving/ sewing room” always has at least 3 projects on the go at once. I love keeping busy.

I live in a beautiful cottage with my husband Malc, and our little dog (poodle/bichon/yorkie cross) Millie x

    I love all things textile and taught myself to weave in 2016. I particularly enjoy creating beautiful wraps and shawls out of exquisite yarns such as Indian silk, or lightweight Bamboo. I also use Tencel, which has a wonderful iridescent finish.
