I usually work with reused or found fabrics.

If you have unwanted fabric you would like to donate (from lacy curtains to corduroy chair throws) I may well be able to make good use of it.

It does not matter if a piece is damaged or stained in places as I will either incorporate or work around the damage.

I may be able to collect around mid-devon or arrange collection by a friend elsewhere.


*red brown jumbo cord
* light-medium weight black, charcoal or dark brown fabrics
* white cotton(/poly) (torn sheets?) for cutting into strips
* small floral prints
*ivory/cream lacy fabrics
* candlewick bedspreads
* night dresses (especially cotton/old fashioned)
* brocade curtains (old fashioned quite heavy fabric) especially bright colours, but muted or natural colours also welcome.


I take on commissions at an hourly rate (plus the cost of any necessary materials purchases)

In the past I have created domestic soft furnishings such as cushions, lampshade, roman blinds.
I have made viking costume and altered wedding dresses, and mended teddy bears.
I take commisions from small alterations and mends to creating backdrops for a touring show or large artistic creations. I also take paint based commissions (such as decorating a letter box)

Contact me to check the practical details and make arrangements for commissions.

* Lampshade commissioned to be made from upcycled/reused materials to match the decor and scale of the room in a holiday let. *Letterbox for a new property decorated on the side and top with apples and single blossoms too. * Backdrop(what doesn't show so well in the pictures is the luminous paint detailing. )
