Welcome to the world of
Welcome to the world of
I have developed some patterns from workshops, easy to understand with lots of photos.
Mellymade Designs is now working with Aahilya Creations in India and helping to support Indian Artisans, These blocks were made, using my designs by Block carvers in India.
You can now book my workshops at Mellymade Designs online.
Workshops at other venues need to be booked at that venue.
My workshops have resumed from September 2021. I have now put together a programme until the end of the year. This is a mix of Zoom and 'in person' workshops at the studio. The workshops at the studio are all subject to Covid rules . I am also teaching at various studios and shops, including at Alexandra Waylett's, Fabric Paper Scissors and Sewing Daze.
I am also collaborating again with Cambridgeshire Community Arts in November, teaching My little hand stitched book and Beginners Patchwork. Go to www.camcommarts.org.uk for more information.
Have you seen my new shop page? You can book places on my workshops as well as buy patterns and project boxes.
So however you want to learn, I now have an option that will suit you I hope. As always, if you want something else, please do get in touch and I will try and find a way to facilitate.
The next big event for Mellymade Designs is Textiles East on Friday 18th / Saturday 19th February 2022. Come and find me and say hello - it would be lovely to see you!
I am a British Textile Artist and Tutor. I have been working with textiles for over forty five years. In the last fifteen years or so I have been teaching textile and mixed media workshops for beginners and advanced . I love to pass my knowledge on as well as still learning new techniques myself.
I have passion for all things floral and fauna as well as old arts and crafts such as Indian Block Printing. I was fortunate enough to visit India in 2019 twice and saw so much inspiration in all that I saw and now using some of it in my present work.
I am a past Co-ordinator for Region 9 Quilters Guild. I set up the Elysian Quilters group in Ely, Cambridgeshire. I am chairman of Stitched Together (formerly Cambridgeshire Embroiderers' Guild) and joined a newly formed Contemporary Quilters Group CQ Iceni which is affiliated with The Quilters Guild. Exciting times ahead.
I am chuffed to have a piece of work published in the WOW book 5, and I also have had some other pieces printed in various stitching magazines.
I hope what you see inspires you .
Sit, Sew and Create!
