Q.  Tell us a bit about yourself and your shop.

A.  I am a long time crafter. I have had a go at nearly everything you could possibly think of. Paper making, candles, decoupage, tassles, cross stitch the list goes on. In amongst all of this, a recurring theme has always been hand sewing. I love to embroider and hand sew and so when I made my first pincushion it felt so right, I just could not stop at one. Over the last few years I have made literally hundreds of pincushions. You can only give so many away though and so my etsy shop began.

Q.  What or Who inspires you?

My materials inspire me. I love to sit down with my giant pile of felt in all its wonderous colours and my stash of embroidery thread and see what emerges. I am always brimming with ideas for new designs and never enough time to create them.

Q.  When you're not doing things for your shop can we find you around the internet?

A.  I can be found on Facebook  and Twitter

Q.  What tool could you not live without?

A.  My needle! Well make that needles. I have many - all threaded with lots of different colours.
