Welcome to Flossie & Twts
Most of my work is done using free hand machine embroidery. I occasionally embellish by hand.
I am planning on creating limited edition prints of some of my larger, more detailed pieces. I also will be creating greetings cards and postcards. More information coming soon.
My love and fascination of sewing has grown since I began sewing 6 years ago and developing as a textile artist at the beginning of 2015. I'm inspired by so many creative women and by accomplished, brilliant, established artists. You can find my biggest influences on my links page. I live in North Wales with my partner and two cats, surrounded by nature and wildlife. I was born in Wales, have travelled only a little, but have travelled to many places in my head. Some of my inspiration comes from my past, in particular the valleys of Wales, the terraces of our industrial past and from the natural world around me. My Grandmother, Nain (pronounced 'Nine' as in the number) was a seamstress and had an incredibly interesting life about which you can read in my blog. I wish I could get some lessons from her now. Alas, I should have listened when I was younger.
We have big plans to run workshops here hopefully one day soon and we are working on renovating an old mill where we hope to host them. We're very privileged to live in such a lovely place and hope to share it with you sometime in the future.
It can be a little lonely in the workroom sometimes, and so I'd really value a tweet or a comment on Facebook or Instagram, or an email from you. Please share any work you may be doing. It's great seeing other people's creativity.
Stitching happiness into life
