ABOUT LUCKY FINDS
I have been collecting fabrics for years: vintage and new Liberty, block prints from India, grain sacks from brocante markets and coloured leather from visits to the US. What began as a hobby soon became something I wanted to do all the time, first making lined leather purses, then cushions and totes. A trip to Portugal, where they make the best broderie anglaise, led to making my popular knickers.
For much of Lockdown I made facemasks – lots – with all profits going to NHS Charities.
Much of the fabric I buy come from fairs and markets and, with my magpie tendency to look for all things shiny, I cannot help but be drawn to other treasures, which are also on the site. For my first fair back in Christmas 2019, I sold a number of items from small independent companies that I love and I continue to look out for lovely things for the website too. What happens next ... I'll let the fabrics and my travels guide me.
