Hello, please could you tell us about your business?

Hi, I’m Mo Jackson (business name MOMO) I was a graphic designer for 25 years but textiles were always my first love. I’m happy to say I’ve now left my computer behind and for the last seven years I’ve been a creative feltmaker and tutor.

What can we look forward to seeing at your stand at ESGWSD 2015?

I use both wet and dry felting processes such as needle felting and nuno felting to create wearable art. I use mainly hand dyed merino wool and silk. This year I will be including eco printed scarves using plants and rust which I’m really looking forward to experimenting with.

What are you looking forward to most about the event and/or visiting Lewes?

I love this show, there is always such a buzz of creative excitement. There’s so much to see and buy, it’s get hard to stay on my own stand as I just want to keep looking at everyone elses!

Hello, please could you tell us about your business?

Hello, I’m Marguerite and I’ve been running www.TextileGarden.com for 8 years.  I attend events around the country where hopefully I may have met a few of you.  My aim is to offer beautiful buttons, etc., many that aren’t available elsewhere in UK.  My new website will be up and running late summer.   I visit most of the factories that make buttons for me.

What can we look forward to seeing at your stand at ESGWSD 2015?

Since the last ESGWSD I’ve got a lot of new buttons etc.  The majority of my stock is from European producers who make designs for me in colours I select, so not seen elsewhere in UK.

What are you looking forward to most about the event and/or visiting Lewes?

I always look forward to the Lewes event as the organisers manage to create an atmosphere that is friendly and welcoming for both exhibitors and visitors.  Lewes is an interesting town with lots of independent shops and good transport links.  The other big plus is that unlike other events, I can go home in the evening as I live nearby in Steyning.
