About Samantha Newbury

Samantha Newbury

Original artworks, handbags, notebooks and Christmas decorations, with a side order of poetry and photography

My Grannie was a Luton milliner (hat maker) and some of my earliest memories are of sitting with her in the back room whilst she sewed hats. My job (age three and a half) was to pick apart die-stamped blocks of silk flowers ready for her to use. I remember being fascinated by the leftover scraps of satin, velvet and paisley, and building castles and towers with empty cotton reels. And it was Grannie who taught me that you could make pretty much anything from fabric, if you put your mind to it, which meant, in due course, that I made a three dimensional fabric model of the inside of a pocket watch as part of my GCSE Art & Craft coursework, along with an embroidered dragon!

I love working with fabrics and thread - I even occasionally weave my own fabric on a small knitter's loom, and, having inherited the contents of Grannie's needlework box, I still find myself using her threads some days - though I'm still not sure what to make with piece of moonbeam-soft parachute silk that we found in there. She taught me never to throw anything away, it's amazing what you can do even with tiny scraps.

I find inspiration all over the place, and usually have a camera with me when I go out - I particularly like taking macro photos of the intricacies of nature. I'm also a writer, so always have a notebook to hand and sometimes the various threads of my creativity merge:

Something to Hang on Your Tree

Taking pieces from my workbox,
I add a skein of silk
the colour of holly berries, and delve
amongst the beads and sequins
for just the right green glass leaves,
a pinch of golden stars
and a single, perfect, snowflake.

Now I can sew;
setting each stitch with care,
each star one of wonder,
each leaf a hint of Christmas spice,
laced with the Season's crimson joy
and the sparkle of snow magic,
to create this little heart
for your Christmas tree
from me, to you, with love.

A Note About Packaging - I am working towards being as environmentally friendly as possible. Cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, polystyrene pellets and air packs that arrive with supplies I've ordered are checked for cleanliness, saved and reused when packing outgoing parcels. In addition we get a lot of charity bags through the door and, rather than send the unused ones to landfill, if I need to protect an item against damp etc, I'll cut a plain piece from one of them to wrap it in. I also reuse the cellophane sleeves from greetings cards to package craft supplies and fabric that I have for sale. I do sometimes use polythene mailers, but am in the process of sourcing an eco-friendly alternative.
