Just a quick hello From Craft Hill Fabric Artisans

Hi, we are a mother (Lizzy) and daughter (Laurie) tea drinking, tattoo wearing duo of craters. We come from five generations of seamstresses and needle women. Every Wednesday evening we get together and make beautiful things for friends, family and sometimes ourselves. Helped along the way by sometime models & general pests Izzy the Border Terrier & Archie the Patterdale terrier. They are very good at keeping a eye on the biscuits. We are both living in beautiful Devon but grew up in Norfolk.

We call ourselves Fabric Artisans & this has come down through 5 generations of seamstresses, needle women & crafters of all things fabric. It began, pre-war, with Little Nanny Silver, who was a talented seamstress. She taught and encouraged her daughter, Mummy Bob, who was a wonderful dressmaker and produced beautiful clothes for herself and her sisters in up to date fashions. Mummy Bob in turn passed on these skills to my mother and Laurie’s Nan, Linda. She has produced many wonderful and creative patchwork murals and elaborate embroidery. So that’s how we got to where we are, come and see how we develop and learn new skills.
