Janet Clare ~ Sussex Stitch Artist

As you (might) know, every month I post my favourite article that I have written for etc Magazine here.

With a blink and a gasp of “well would you believe it” here we are in August, and that means it is decision time. The August issue is a Wedding Special, which means I have a lot of beautiful things to choose from. Including a piece on where to wed abroad and another on some very funky favours.

But I didn’t choose either of them, and I didn’t choose my interview with Janet Clare either but I love her work so much I thought I would blog about her anyway…

They are so simple, quirky and fun I think it is impossible not to fall in love with them. The horse-patch-quilt in particular really gets my sewing impulse inspired. Done using jointed templates, a technique Janet came up with, the possibilities are plenty when it comes to adapting the style to suit your own ideas.



While the free machine drawing of a girl with her dog is a great idea for adding life to an exisiting object.

I suppose I better warn my friends and family now, given the chance my sewing machine will be pimping anything it can get it’s needle on in the not so distant future.
