Mary Quant – The Victoria and Albert Museum

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the beautiful vintage clothing collection of Mary Quant -from miniskirts & hot pants to vibrant tights & makeup, discover how Mary Quant launched a fashion revolution on the British high street. Filmed at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Contemporary Craft Festival 2018, Bovey Tracey – YouTube

The recent heatwave has provided a perfect opportunity for me to catch up with a little housekeeping. Not the domestic kind but a bit of computer housekeeping.  I’ve tweaked and organised some photos and rediscovered some video footage from The Contemporary Craft Fair at Bovey Tracey.  So after a little editing I’ve put together this rather jolly video diary to share with you.

I regularly receive questions on Instagram, about the artists I meet on my travels and how to contact them. Therefore, at the very end of this video I’ve included a selection of wonderful artists along with their contact details.


Over the years, you have followed my many textile journeys on this BlogInstagram and Facebook. Therefore, I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to join in my next big adventure as I take the leap into the world of YouTube.
