Retrouvius selected a group of hand dyed velvet colours for cushions which were delivered just before Easter and are now available on their website and shop. As well as being my main stockists of cushions in London and I have collaborated with them for many years, supplying textiles and cushions for numerous design projects.
Another small group of cushions with antique textiles, hand embroidery and hand dyed fabrics have been added to the online shop.
I work with a small group of embroiderers and makers in England to make up my designs and will be now continually adding to the shop as they are made.
Embroidered commissions can be undertaken for interior projects including curtains, wall panels and upholstered panels for furniture.
Also, a note to put in your diary that the next Hand Sale will be on 15th,16th and 17th May at The 20th Century Theatre in Notting Hill, Please email if you would like to be added to our mailing list.
Running a little behind, but here are some of the new colours just added to my online shop:
cushions with antique textiles:
Over the next few weeks I will be adding more, but have now started to add a collection on the online shop that I have put together over the past few months and hope to continue with a small stock, some may be made in pairs, or along a similar theme, but they are all unique pieces.
Also just added, a new range of colours in deep blues & greys in hand dyed velvets and dip dye tie dyes.

I make up in small groups of colours and am continuously making, I feel it is better to wait for the right thing to come along.
Next will be a few more corals and blues and a deep green then some greys and jewel colours after that……..please ask me to send samples of colours of any of the colours listed in the current stock that you think will work but need to make sure.
For your diary: 9th – 11th May, the next Hand Sale.
This sale there will be delicious homemade food by Asa Simonsson on the first two days as you enter downstairs. The main sale is held upstairs in the theatre and there will be longtime favourites of ours selling: collected and handmade jewellery, clothes, furniture, ceramics, handblown glass, textiles etc., plus new people with new finds. Not just a sale for shopping but a great place to catch up with friends who come back year after year.
We have chosen The Homeless as the charity for this sale to whom we will donate all the £1 entrance fees. If you have had time do a spring clean of your cupboards and If you can, please bring a bag of old clothes as we will be collecting these to donate as well.
