About

Hello and welcome to a website all about textiles. I’m so glad you have come to visit.

I’m Amanda. I’m a fabric and quilt designer, artist and maker (listed in the Crafts Council Directory here).

If you are interested in textiles of all kinds, there is plenty here for you to enjoy,,,

If you like fabric, there are 118 unique and charming FABRIC DESIGNS here (I’m a surface pattern designer by training). Fabrics are supplied by print-on-demand firm Spoonflower. Fabric is shipped from Berlin, Germany or Durham, USA. Fabric sizes start at an 8 x 8″ (20 x 20cm) swatch.

If you need a QUILT/ SEWING PATTERN take a look at the 50+ easy-to-follow patterns here. (I’m a published pattern-writer, as you can see here.)

There are also some free patterns on the TUTORIALS page here.

You might like to join the QUILTALONG in 2021 to make ‘Summer Bouquets’, a pretty double-bed quilt – see here for details

If you’d like to learn something new, explore the CLASSES page here and YOUTUBE channel here. (I’m a qualified Textiles and Art teacher.)

If you are interested in ART, CRAFTS and TEXTILES topics, the most recent weekly blog post is here and there’s a search box to find what you need.

You might also enjoy the inspiring MONTHLY NEWSLETTER (you can sign up for it here).

If you would like a handmade QUILT or an original PAINTING to enhance your home or workplace, or to offer as a gift, you can find it in the shop here.

My studio (just seen in the photo at the top of the page) is at historic Ushaw, Durham, UK (see here.)

If you want to know (even) more about me, the story of how I got into Textiles is right here!

This is my MISSION here.

It’s easy to get in touch and I’d love to hear from you. I do use the post (as seen left) but the contact form below is quicker!
