Painting the Town
23rd August 2017
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
25th February 2018
The Craft4Crafters Show was very busy and I met a lot of old friends, I also had visits from some of the students from the SWQ Retreat in January. Two of them bought their completed "I Love Beer" pieces, it was really good to see how they had finished them.
I had also managed to finish my re-packaging, over to cardboard and using a minimal amount of polythene. It will be in my shop once I have photographed the kits!!
Now it's time to complete some more new pieces of work.

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.

I had a great time at the South West Quilters Retreat in Beer at the end of January. I made a new piece of art work for the occasion and was pleased that a number of the ladies made their version of the piece. My version is on the Gallery page.
I am gradually adding to my gallery of phto's from workshops but this week i am busy getting ready for the Craft4Crafters Show at West Point in Exeter next week. -
Full details are on my events page - come and say hello - I will be on stand 165.
25th September 2017
Getting ready for the Threads textile event at Farnham Maltings this coming Saturday (30th). Full details on my events page, please come and say hello if you can make the day.
Then its workshops / talks and off to the Big Textile Show in Leicester at the end of October
.I will be doing a 1 hour taster workshop in Leicester - students will be making a "Gingerbread Cottage gift box", just in time for Christmas - it will be here before we know it!!
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.
30th December 2017
I am busy updating various parts of my site, there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day at the moment.
Hope to get it done early January - until then Happy New Year to you all - the "hidden pages" I am working on will be revealed soon!!!!
I have updated my events page which gives details of where I will be up until June 2018.
29th June 2017
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.

As I said in September - getting ready for the Big Textile Show at Leicester Race Course.
I will be on a stand with my good friend Alison Hulme, she will be selling her fanbulous screen printed pinnys, amongst other things. Do come and say hello if you are visiting the show.
Then its just a few more workshops in the run up to Christmas, followed by a busy 2018!
