About

 

Sally, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland; now based in London, studied MA Fashion at the Royal College of Art and has designed for, amongst others, Levi's and M&S.

Since bringing up a young family, her long-held interest in handworked craft, surface pattern and vintage textiles has come to the fore.

She designs and makes machine-knitted toys, blankets and cushions using soft lambswool. Sally has also trained as an upholsterer, hand embroidering the top cover of chairs to create functional works of art.

Her love of vintage toys — especially the imagery and colours of early Galt and Abbatt wooden puzzles and picture card games — is a predominant influence in her work.

All her work is hand made in the UK.
