Threads of Colour
Welcome to my website
I am Liz Zealley and I love textiles and colour! I have been sewing and crafting for over 25 years.
Nature inspires me, colour motivates me and the fact that I love to create, enables me to make unique pieces of textile art. My main interests are machine embroidery, felt making and rag rugging.
Each piece I make is usually a 'one off', but at times I like to follow a theme.
I enjoy hand sewing and machine embroidery. These are often incorporated in each textile i create.
I make small rag rugs, rag rug hangings and large rag rugs, utilising recycled fabric. Felted vessels and felted wallhangings. I also create many items using fabric. From vases and pictures to quilts and wallhangings.
Enjoy looking through the site and I hope you will be inspired to create.
My sewing and creative classes are suitable for adults and children of all abilities.I love to teach and encourage people to create.
Please contact me if you’d like to learn to sew and create your own works of art.
