First of all I would like to thank those of you who have sent pictures of completed workshop pieces, I do like to see how they turn out, everyone manages to make them so personal.

I will post up some pictures in the gallery soon  - My Autumn resolution?? is to work on the website,  I would rather be stitching and painting than sat in front of the computer but I will do my best to stick to it!!!

First Job:

I will be posting my upcoming bookings on my events page

I have updated some parts of this site, hope you like the new photo's.


I have been busy teaching workshops, giving talks and trying to develop new kits and work shops, so look out in the New Year when all will be revealed.


In the meantime, hope you all have a great Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

A happy time visiting Portsmouth & District Embroiderers Guild and Haselmere Quilters, I hve also finished my "I Love Beer" cushion. (I love the art work I made so also did a cushion so that I can take it with me on my travels!!


am also designing a couple of new postcard kits for the Craft4Crafters Show in April. See my events page for full details, and a video link to see what was happening  at the last show.

21st October 2018


Home from the Craft4Crafters Show at Shepton Mallet. I had visits from old students and met up with some old friends, It was good to be back there again.

The show gets bigger each year and there were so many taster workshops on offer - including mine!!. There was also a 2nd Hall exhibiting quilts, neddlefelting, textile pictures to name but a few.


The next Craft4Crafters is at Westpoint, Exeter in February and then again at the Bath & West Showground in Shepton Mallet, in April. See my events page for full details.

I have been busy preparing workshops and new kits for the Craft4Crafters Show in Shepton Mallet later this month, I will also be taking part in the Big Textile Show in Leicester at the end of the month. Full details are now on my events page. Do come and say hello if you are visiting either show.


I have also had all my work re-photographed, I am really pleased with the results, will be adding them to my website in the following weeks !!! Like all of us I could really use a few more hours in the day.

My name is Anne Hellyer


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.

After visiting and talking to the lovely ladies of King Alfred Quilting Group in Wantage last night, today I was off to Winchester to meet with my Zero Nine friends at our  monthly Textile Group meeting. We are all busy making new art works for our exhibition in August.


I am hoping for a continuation of this lovely weather so I can get outside and  paint up more fabric.


Usual story - Just not enough time in the day!!!!
