Ruth Packham

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Wales   

My background is as a Fine Artist, graduating from what was Newcastle Polytechnic in 1992. Since 1994 I have been living in the wilds of West Wales where I have had 2 children. I have always loved fabric and when my daughter was tiny, 1995 I took a screen printing class at my local Arts Centre. I have been printing since then, inspired by the patterns of nature, creating bold colourful images. Five years ago I made my first piece of felt and am now in awe of wool and its potential. Three years ago I made my first needle felt creature and am addicted! Birds are a current theme.
I also machine applique and make one off sewn items.

Sam Pickard

category: Fashion Accessories   Printmaking   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South West   

Because everything I do starts with drawing, I often arrive at my studio with armfuls of blossom, roses or leaves I’ve gathered from the garden or woodland and sit down and draw.

My lovely print studio is based in North Devon where I create bespoke interior textile products, fabrics, wall-coverings and accessories using traditional printmaking and craft skills, combined with experimental digital technology using the very best materials sourced in the U.K. wherever possible.

My designs have been commissioned to create trays and rugs and have twice been shortlisted for the British Design Awards.

Stitching for the Soul

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Yorkshire   

My name is Beverley Holmes-Wright and I have been stitching and creating for over 20 years, but started up a part-time business a few years ago, after completing an honours degree in Creative Practice from Leeds Met University, for which I received First Class.

Why Stitching for the Soul? Stitching makes me happy and is an integral part of my life, it keeps me busy and enables me to meet people who are like-minded, making and buying well crafted hand-made items. I am partial to a bit of soul music too!

I produce carefully made, physical pieces which please the eye and brighten up the homes which take them in: using only the highest quality fabrics and threads, each piece is made using a variety of free machine embroidery, appliqué and delicate stitched patterns. But perhaps the largest part of my work involves planning aesthetic colour schemes and composition so that each creation is harmonious and balanced.
