Welcome to
Smallbeans - for your home and your coat!

“ Stop Press” again! I feature in the latest edition of
Workbox magazine with a rather large quilt I made last year with a local school to celebrate their Centenary.

Here you can find links to my crafting and teaching blogs, etsy shop and C&G Creative Textiles courses

Here is a link to the
New Summer course brochure to download and Creative Textiles is right at the top of the page:

  • A 8 week introduction to Creative textiles, introduction to working with sketchbooks, dying and printing fabrics, appliqué, weaving and collage work, hand and machine embroidery.
  • A creative textiles beginners course and a 3 day Summer School to make a rather lovely sample which could be a hanging or a book cover. We will be dyeing velvet and working with metallic foils and then embellishing with hand or machine embroidery.

There is also an introduction to Machine Embroidery on the 7th of June .

If you would like information about any courses email me and I will endeavour to reply asap.

I am also planning a Smallbeans Textile day on the 26th of April at Arts Central, a new arts hub above Central Milton Keynes Station. A day of indigo dyeing and embroidery - email me for more details.

On the 10th of May I will be venturing out with
Best Made Local in Buckingham, really looking forward to the day and showing some of my new work to the public. Do come along and say hello!

There is lots going on, hopefully something to interest you along the way.

Thanks for your time
