About The Craft Room

The Craft Room

Sara Thursfield textile artist at work in the Craft Room

I have always had a thing for sewing and textile art allows me to indulge a great passion for fabrics and fibres and to explore the boundless possibilities that materials can offer. I love to heat manipulate synthetic fabrics, design and create unusual flower sculptures, dye fabrics and fibres and mix and match combinations of everyday fabrics, lace and fibres. Textile art is my world and I am always on the look out for new inspiration.
Creating 3D textile art through free machine embroidery is an ongoing theme for me and I love to make embroidered vessels, tea light holders and candle holders. The discovery of Angelina fibres gives the items a little additional and unique sparkle.
I also enjoy making bespoke bunting fit for any occasion - Shabby Chic is an obsession of mine and of course an abundance of lace needs to be included into their designs.
My new thing is to make soy candles. This evolved from not being able to source the colourful tea lights that are incorporated into the Angelina fibre embroidered holders -so I decided to take the plunge and learn a new process. Hand pouring tea lights morphed into creating Eco friendly soy wax candles and these just had to be decorated with lace....everything lace!!
I hope you enjoy all of the shop items and delight in looking around my world of the Craft Room.
Best wishes,
