Thread wrapped and woven buttons created for Gina-B Silkworks

Good evening. Here are my show samples for Gina’s show on Create and Craft TV tomorrow at 5pm (Freeview Channel 23 – can watch live or on catch up online too if you miss it).

Gina Buttons

Gina is a super talented lady that uses traditional Passementerie techniques to create period costume and museum pieces to commission. She also provides kits and books with the aim of keeping these traditional methods alive and applicable to the modern maker.

Tomorrows show is all about button making. I can highly recommend her range of books and DVDs – I think that I have bought just about every one. New designs will be on the show including Dorset Style buttons.

Teneriffe Lace video reminder for beginners from Gina Barrett

For those that got a starter kit and looms from Gina Barrett (recently on Create & Craft) – she has put up a little video reminder on YouTube to help get you started.

 

I have never added a video link on my blog so will do my best.

Hopefully if you click here it will take you there – How to make a Teneriffe Lace medallion.

 

I have just got the starter kit and book so will be giving this another go later in the week.

Exciting news: I am joining Gina B Silkworks

I am still pinching myself. I will be working with the fabulous Gina Barrett and her Design Team at Gina-B Silkworks – helping out with samples for her shows on Create & Craft TV. I have admired her work for so many years. As an added Bonus I will also working with the talented Chris Offa and Gillian McMurray. So excited.

 

Gina will be on Create & Craft tomorrow at 10am launching new kits and instructions for creating gorgeous Teneriffe Lace (UK Freeview Channel 23 or watch live or on catch up online from the website).
