Where the gorgeous vintage fabric of yesterday is renewed and re-invented into the treasures of today "RETRO REBORN !"
I love the textile designs and colours of the 50s , 60s and 70s - using these rare vintage fabrics adds to the uniqueness of each item I craft. It is so lovely to take a piece of fabric that has lain unused for up to 50 years and turn it into something that can be treasured today
In my shop you'll see me using fabric from the 1950s to the 1970s, produced by such names as Heals, Horrocks, Boras, Fothergay, Sanderson, Osman and Grafton.
It's a struggle letting some of these fabrics go but they are too good to hide away - I'm going to share!
I changed my shop name to WittyDawn in 2014, but some people may also still remember me as AudreysCat .
I'm very lucky to be able enjoy my designing here in my garden studio in the stunning Cotswolds countryside, in the UK . When I not doing that I'm enjoying life with my family, gardening, walking our lovely dog and attending a few local vintage events . I have a regular stall at an excellent curated local Craft Market -Cotswold Craft Market, Corn Hall , Cirencester - Usually I am there on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month but contact me for details as sometime I have a weekend off!
It's all good fun -and I hope you can see that by the exuberant colours I favour in my fabric choices - I do like a bit of BRIGHTNESS in my life . I hope to bring some into yours as well.
