TEXTILES – FREE-MACHINE EMBROIDERY/APPLIQUE
Nature-inspired free-machine embroidered & appliqued framed pictures using Liberty fabrics. Greeting cards also available.
Part of the Gedling Artists in Mapperley
Sarah began sewing in 2010 having been told at school that she couldn’t sew! After trying free-machine embroidery she became hooked (it is VERY addictive!) & in 2012 Wildgoose Designs began. Sarah has grown her one-woman enterprise & now sells in several shops as well as at craft fairs & other events. She has also teaches free-machine embroidery & lampshade making. Most of her work is inspired by nature – birds, bees & flowers all feature as well as the ever-popular hearts. Liberty fabric and Harris tweed are often incorporated into her work to add a splash of colour.
SARAH SEWELL (WILDGOOSE DESIGNS) – STUDIO
My studio – is challenging! I am home-based, working on our dining room table, surrounded by the trappings of a textile artist – fabric, sewing machine, threads…it’s manageable but not ideal (especially when we use the table for family meals each evening!) I dream of a dedicated space to work in…one day!
SARAH SEWELL (WILDGOOSE DESIGNS) – WORK
Created by using free-machine embroidery and applique & mainly nature-inspired, Sarah’s work often features bees, birds & flowers. She also sells a very popular range of framed fabric hearts made using Liberty fabrics. Most of her work is framed art with greeting cards also available.
