A long time since my last post - a busy summer. I started with week teaching at Crafty Retreats  in Limoges at the beginning of July where I met some lovely people (see some photos in my gallery pages). This was  followed by my own holiday and now I am back preparing for upcoming shows and workshops.


See my events page for full details of upcoming bookings

I have been really busy preparing for my trip to Cornwall at the end of this month. I will be doing 3 workshops, visiting Wadebridge, Truro and St Ives. So a busy few days.


Hoping for some dry weather, preferably with some sun thrown in too!

Just a quick update, back from Cornwall where I had a great time. Very talented and welcoming groups and they have all asked if I can come back next year!


Would love to re-visit so just need to work out dates.


If there are any other groups who would like to be included in my "tour" just get in touch and I will see if we can get the dates to work.

Finally have a bit of time to add my new workshop to the site - a lighthouse doorstop (see workshops page for details).


I have had a very busy but thoroughly enjoyable start to 2017. Exhibiting, giving talks and running workshops and on every occasion meeting some very nice people. I do hope to be able to get my gallery more up to date in the next couple of weeks so if your workshop isn't yet showing, keep checking!!

I can't believe its February already.. I have been really busy making pieces for the Zero nine exhibition in Romsey, which is on until 20th February and I am off to the Craft4Crafters Show in Exeter next week. - Please see my events page for full details.


I really enjoyed my afternoon with the Quirky Quilters recently in Stoke sub Hamdon. Those of you whose  workshop photo's aren't yet on display, I am working on that too! Re designing some pages of this website that will be on display soon

My name is Anne Hellyer - although some of you will know me as Anne Moore!


I started this website to introduce my painted and stitched textiles to a wider audience.


I love paint and I love textiles and I combine the two in my work.  


I hand paint all the fabric I use and then print the finer details, and embellish with machine stitch. Each piece is individually designed,


I create work that is flexible - able to change location as the mood takes you!


To that end each piece is self supporting. They do not require frames - can be either free standing or wall mounted - manipulated into a shape or hung "flat".


I do hope you enjoy looking at my site.

There are just not enough hours in the day at the moment. I had a brilliant time at Craft4Crafters in Exeter, so now I am trying to re-stock, develop new designs and prepare for forthcoming workshops. So the website and Facebook are having to take a back seat (again!!)


If you bought a Beach Hut Bag Kit in Exeter and you have no "beach" please get in touch, a slight error  when packaging a few of them - sorry.

Another quick update, where are the days going!!!


Off to France tonight for a holiday and a weeks teaching at Crafty Retreats near Limoges. I am really looking forward to

it  - I met Philippa and Fran at the shows in Exeter and Bristol and then visited them at the studio last year.

The studio is well equipped and in a beautiful location and it should be a very inspiring week.
