For many years I have been an avid reader and collector of needlecraft magazines and books. I am constantly researching new techniques and ideas.

While I always endeavour to create original designs, I am undoubtedly influenced by the amazing designs and artwork I see. There are times when a certain design lends itself perfectly to a creation.

I would never knowingly reproduce any pattern in part or whole without seeking permission and giving full credit to the designer. I would only ever use patterns to meet a brief I am unable otherwise unable to create.

A number of designers have very kindly given me permission to use their patterns in my own designs providing there is an acknowledgement.

Customer’s invoices always include:

  • The fabric used and the name of the designer (when known)
  • The pattern creator (when a pattern has been used either in part or in total)

I would like to give particular thanks to the amazing Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly Designs for permission to use her designs.
