The life of a model is one of travel and adventure which I love. It is a welcome change to be able to do something on my doorstep every now and again.  Supporting local – Festiwool is a local event that I’ve done for the past few years and is such a joy.  I wanted to tell you a bit about it and why I love it so much.

Festiwool - Supporting Local

Supporting Local

Festiwool and is for those passionate about knitting and crochet and about introducing to the younger generation the joys and benefits that the age-old crafts can bring.  Plus you can make a bang up to date fashion statement using these crafts too.  You can’t be too old or too young for Festiwool!  Set up in 2014 it is proof that creative and relaxing crafts have a place in today’s hectic world.

Festiwool with Tamara

This year I got to model with the gorgeous teenage model Tamara (another local) who I’ve worked with before.  A Youth and Wisdom combo – Tamara definitely has youth on her side and I like to think I’ve gained some wisdom from all my years!


I can’t say I’m an expert at knitting or crochet but I have done both over the years and made fairly simple but satisfying items.  Dressmaking was more my thing but sadly these days I find threading the needle rather difficult!  Plus I’m still so busy working…

I love to be around creative people and if it involves dressing up even better!
