Three Things; Works in Progress – Christmas Open Event

Textile pieces for Christmas Open Studio

We have an Open Studio Event this Sunday from 10am to 4pm and Sue has been busy making some textile based Christmas gifts to have for sale in the studio.

Hand stitched covered buttons

These buttons have been covered by Sue in hand dyed fabrics including rust dye and shades of nautical blue. Sue has then embellished the fabric further using simple hand stitches. You can buy the buttons individually to add to clothing for an individual look or to add to soft furnishings.

Hand dyed stitched covered notebooks

These rust marked hand embellished fabrics are being used to cover small sketchbooks. Sue made similar books for our last open studio event and they all sold out before lunchtime. The covers are hand stitched so that the sketchbook can be slid out and replaced when full.

Hand knitted baubles by Sue Barnes

Sue has also been making these hand knitted baubles which all have a different knitted design. Worked in the same neutral pallet the textured patterns make them a sculptural Scandinavian addition to any tree.
