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.


    1. Thank you Heather, that’s good advice. I’m not really looking to do it as an income, but I would like to be paid for my time and perhaps make enough money to cover the cost of the carder.
