Hello, my name is Michele and I’m a textile artist designer/maker based in Northumberland. Welcome to my blog, called The Thread Shed Studio because I was lucky enough to have a studio shed built for me, in my garden, in 2014 for my 50th birthday. It’s where I experiment with messy art supplies, hand dyeing, printing, and various creative pursuits.

In June 2018 I graduated from Northumberland College with a Distinction from the HND Fashion and Textiles course.

I love learning new things and teaching others what I know. I’m a self confessed fabric-a-holic and sewing supplies junkie.

  1. Congratulations on your drum carder.
    I got mine 2 years ago and I’ve had such fun with all colours and fibres. You’ll find that you become very popular when the word gets out. I’ve processed fleece for people for a contribution to charity but I’m sure it will be possible to make an income from it.
    If I can give you a small piece of advice it would be to always inspect any fleece before you take the job. Not everyone appreciates that a drum carder doesn’t make it possible to card any old part of the fleece.
