I have always had a passion for vintage textiles. As a child, I would scour market stalls for remnants for my dolly clothes, and I am still at it. I grew up in England (a publican’s daughter) and have a textile degree from Canterbury College of Art …many decades ago.

Coming to Canada in the 60’s I continued to practice as a textile artist, teaching collage locally at schools and libraries. I exhibited as well. A wonderful job in the publishing industry came my way and textiles took a back seat for quite a few years, although I always bought more! Since 2005 I have been buying and selling vintage textiles….anything that appeals and ‘speaks’ to me. I sell at Ontario markets and online. I am still intrigued.

 

Statement

To serve my customers in a friendly and knowledgeable fashion, hoping to spread appreciation for vintage and antique textiles.
