In my spare time I love felt making. I'm inspired by nature and the beautiful place I live. I use 100% super soft merino wool to make wet felt scarfs, handbags, and book covers. I also make needle felted creatures such as hares, foxes, deer, seals and birds.

Venue: Staithes Museum

I taught myself to knit when I was a teenager. I love colour, knitting and design and now I am retired use my time to produce home accessories such as cushions, cosies for teapots, coffee pots and bottles alongside children's jumpers. Living near the sea means many of my designs reflect that and have a seaside vibe. I have been an integral part of the Staithes Museum team since it opened and sell all my products there.
