I am busy trying to set up a new website.


The system used to run this version of my website is not going to be supported by the end of this year so I am taking this quiet time to start afresh.


So not all of my kits etc are in the shop on this site and setting up the new site is proving to be rather challenging to say the least.


If you want anything just drop me an email :


Stay safe and keep well

Summer finally seems to have finihed so I have spent the last couple of days trying to bring some semblance of order to my craft room!!! I think I'm loosing the battle though.

Having had a great summer now back home and have been busy getting ready for The West Country Qult and Textile Show - details on my events page.


I am launching a new limited edition kit at the show plus I will have copies of the DforDaisy Book with a fabric pack to make my project at a spec[al price for anyone who buys the book.


If you are coming to the show please come and say hello to see me in the gallery section

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.

Finally had time to put some new kits on my shop, they will also be available  at the Craft4CRafters Show at Shepton Mallet in April.

I will also be taking part in an exhibition with Zero NIne Textile Artists in May at Harold Hillier Gardens in Romsey but first of all off to the Sewing for Pleasure Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham next week to hang "The Soldiers in Petticoats" pieces of art. These were part of an exhibition by Andover Branch of the Embroiderers Guild last year to commemorate the Centenary of Votes for Women (well some women anyway).
