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 (spot them in our pic’s) 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.
Wow! I have just had a very quick look at some of the posts on your blog and you are a very productive pair. You have made so many beautiful items. I will now follow your blog and also take the time to look back at your previous posts. You are an inspiration.
Thank you, that is very kind.
Thank you for stopping by and following From The Boudoir and The UFO Garage & Fabric Depot. 🙂 Jule
I adore my momma and was so tickled to read about you lovely ladies. My mom taught me to sew and she and I continue to inspire each other even at quite a distance.
It’s such a pleasure for us both, special times spent sewing x
Hi, I’ve nominated you guys for the Versatile Blogger award. Keep up the good work!
Oh wow. We have just seen this. Thank you for the nomination, sounds similar to the Liebster Award.
Thanks for dropping by my blog and the follow. You have a lovely blog and some fabulous projects going on. I shall return the follow in the hope that I can learn some great techniques and ideas from you. Keep it up!
I’ve just started following you and I can see you’re going to be VERY inspiring – I’ll just need more hours in the day! Love your blog 🙂
Thank you, it’s good too hear someone’s interested in our ramblings. I work full time & Laurie is a full time science student so neither of us get enough time too craft. As long as I get a few hours in a week I’m happy lol x
I agree a little ‘fix’ of hobbying does wonders for making me happy too 🙂
