Fibrespace HQ


I love it when other designers / makers share pictures of their studio space, (I'm afraid I'm quite nosey), so I thought it was about time I shared mine with you. My first thought was that I should give the studio a tidy first, but then that wouldn't be a true representation at all. When we had the shed studio built I imagined this beautiful space with inspirational pictures on the wall, retro furniture and shelves with artistically arranged objects, just like you see in the magazines. Unfortunately, the truth is that it just ain't big enough to be beautiful and functional, and I need the limited space to function well as I spend most of my days in here. So here it is, Fibrespace HQ:

 The first picture is taken from our kitchen window, so you see it's just a short walk to work each morning, (please ignore the state of out garden, it is very much a work in progress).

 This is my sewing corner, where I make the brooches.

 Here's the table where I make the kits up, I do them in batches of 100 at a time.

This is the area where I pack orders up.
And finally, this is the view from my window, the Goldfinches are regular visitors to the garden in summer.

Not On The High Street Store

Woo Hoo, Fibrespace now has a Not On The High Street Store. For the time being this will be the only place online where you can purchase the full range of Fibrespace kits directly from me. Keen to make a good first impression I have been slaving over the camera to try and get some good product shots that catch the eye and reflect the 'Fibrespace' brand. I think I managed it after lots of trial and error, ( the British summer has not helped).

I have some new kits in the pipeline to add to the Fibrespace range and will post them on here as soon as they go in the store.
