Shortly before starting my small business Amanda Jane Textiles in Autumn 2014, I began this blog. Thus far, I have written 100 blog posts and included a 30-second video about my creative life. Click here to see it.
There have been about 13,000 hits on this website. Thank you for visiting.
The plan is to write original content each week which I hope you will enjoy, and also to give access to my gradually increasing selection of quilt and sewing patterns and to my stock of fabric designs.
Over the two and a half year period, I have covered a variety of topics, the majority (but not all) textile-related. I also like to feature the beautiful North-East of England, where I live and where I am an AirBnB host. I also to write about other things that have caught my interest. Here are some examples. Just click on the title to read the post:
Skiing and Snow:
Durham and the North-East:
I also wrote a useful post about how to replace a jacket lining which appeared on the Bernina blog. Click here to see it.
