Vintage Charity Shop Find

I find fabric and vintage are the perfect combination.
One of my weekly trips to town, includes a wander around a selection of  favourite charity shops.  I can’t resist anything fabric or vintage, so when this lovely fabric was spotted peaking out from the corner of a rummage basket, I was in like a shot to retreive it.


What a Find… it came home with me.

It was quite a large piece of fabric and very draped beautifully. I held it up to me and realised  there was enough to make a tunic dress!

Tim Holtz – Creativity in Action

I spotted the wonderful Tim Holtz demonstrating at a recent trade show,  CHSI 2012.
He’s the font of knowledge when it comes to all mixed media. A warm and very generous man who is happy to share all he knows about his art – and he knows a lot !

Are you a fan Tim Holtz?

I’m a long time Stitcher and have only recently discovered his work.
I love his paper based art and find the cross over into fabric based surface design quite exciting.
