A star of musical theatre.
I wish I’d never worn?
I have no regrets – it all made sense at the time.
5 things on your desk right now?
My nana’s pincushion in the shape of a hedgehog, dried seed heads from nearby woods, a cup of lemon and ginger tea and an overflowing landscape of vintage fabric, threads and haberdashery.
favorite guilty pleasure?
Buying vintage doll’s beds.
favorite movie of all time?
The Wizard of Oz
do you collect anything?
Yes, most things. I have quite a lot of vintage cream woollen blankets, mostly picked up in charity shops…mother of pearl buttons….old mending threads….feathers and twigs picked up on walks – you get the idea!
I do a Lesley Phillips (British film actor) impression that makes my husband laugh a lot.
if you got a free plane ticket to anywhere, where would you go?
The Merry old land of Oz.
I don’t ever remember not making things, Gentlework is just a continuation of that.
go to products that relate to your craft?
Vintage french linen, careworn fabrics and faded book pages.
how do you get inspired or stay inspired?
Inspiration comes continually and from all places, but often from nature, a walk in the woods with my dog, Sparky, always bears fruit.
