|Location||Berkshire, United Kingdom|
|Introduction||I am lucky enough to work from home indulging my passion for vintage & antique textiles, haberdashery & other paraphernalia that I just can't live without. I am partial to chippy paintwork, faded photographs & reading cards & letters that have long ago lost their owners. I realise that I will never make my fortune doing what I love, but the pleasure I get from hand~making something completely unique is reward enough. Working with treasures in the form of textiles, buttons, beads & trims is a privilege and I strive every day to learn more about their past.|
|Interests||sewing, collecting vintage & antique textiles, reading interior design books, playing 'shops'with my 4 year old daughter|
|Favorite Movies||Breakfast At Tiffanys, My Fair Lady, Marie Antoinette, Atonement, Oliver, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Hobsons Choice, La Vie En Rose, Gigi, Some Like It Hot, It's A Wonderful Life, Harvey, Chocolat, Mamma Mia|
