Gayle's colour

I love the bright splash of colour Gayle Bicknell's work gives to the shop. Gayle, from Alton, teaches textiles and makes wonderful thread covered birds and screen printed pieces as pictured above.

The shop is full of handmade stock - 17 makers plus myself. There's almost too much to choose from. As it gets dark and the fairy lights twinkle it looks magical ...
I would love to be making more of the stock myself but I spend most of my days happily talking to customers. From Monday onwards, with the table cleared for workshops, you will see me sitting busily making at that table. A promise to self!
