About Me

Textile Conservator.  Fabric Designer.  Tutor and Demonstrator.

Maria Maidment

I have 30 years experience in printed textile design, working in the textile fashion industry as a fabric designer during the 80s and 90s. I have recently graduated at the University of Lincoln as a textile conservator and have experience working with the National Trust.

My passion is working with vintage historical fabrics, embroidery and beadwork and creating exciting upcycled products to sell.  As well as selling my products I also design sewing kits for crafters who want to create their own products, I am a member of the Embroiders Guild and teach heritage sewing in goldwork and beading textiles and embroidery. I demonstrate and deliver talks to all ages and diverse groups sharing my skills in conservation and the creative ideas, after all its all about sharing !

Please contact me if you would like me to talk, teach or purchase my kits or products.

Thank you.
