About

Threadnoodle - noodling about with thread (and fabric and beads and buttons and paper...)

I've created with fabric and thread right from the very first day I was shown how to use a sewing machine. My grandmothers, mother and step-mother were all very proficient knitters and sewing machine botherers, so I grew up in an environment where those skills were valued and passed on, and having a stash of fabric and wool and other craft materials was completely normal and expected!

I have a City & Guilds Diploma in Machine Embroidery and my sewing machine will always be my tool of choice. I do also love a bit of felt-making, and I'm trying to expand my repertoire of hand embroidery stitches.

My most favourite materials are recycled, pre-loved fabrics, and good quality artisan beads and bits and pieces. Vintage prints remind me of my childhood, and colourful Indian cottons, sari silks and beads stir my soul.

I prefer natural, renewable materials, as my eco-warrior side is bothered by the oil used to create synthetic fabrics, and the ocean pollution from synthetic fibres. But I also believe passionately in reducing waste and recycling, so I will use a whole range of fabrics and fibres in my work: I prefer to make something beautiful out of recycled materials of all descriptions, rather than see them thrown away.

The inspiration for my work comes from my love of the materials themselves, as well as plants, wild places, and ethnic art and craft.

Many of the fabrics I use are recycled or salvaged from old sewing projects. I always wash them before using them in my projects. Most of the felt pieces I use are either handmade by me, or commercial felt that I have embellished with extra fibres, silk scraps and machine stitching. Some fabrics are also hand-dyed. All cords and braids are made by me on the sewing machine, and all beads are sewn by hand. All stitching is machine stitched by me and my sewing machine, or handstitched by me. All stuffing, where used, is clean, new polyester toy stuffing or quilt wadding.

NONE of my pieces are toys or suitable for children under 3 years of age, as they do not meet EU safety regulations.
