About Me and Design Rocks!

My photo
Hello and welcome. Here's a bit about me: I've spent my childhood and a lot of my life traveling. Places, colour and pattern are my biggest inspiration. I've surfed & lived in a tent in Cornwall. Sketched my way round Morocco. Designed from an antique textile archive in Manhattan (dream job!). Styled and written for an interiors magazine on the sleepy island of Malta. Now I live in Manchester, UK, where I run Design Rocks greetings cards. Whilst in Manhattan I amassed a large collection of vintage textiles. These were used as inspiration for my first card range, Vintage Rocks! We sell wholesale so if you'd like a brochure visit the website or get in touch. Thanks for stopping by.

Manchester Crafters meet up this Saturday




Hi All, just letting you know that we'll be meeting up to discuss the gorgeous muffins, and business of course, at the Manchester Craft Centre this Saturday at 10.30am. Any crafters or designer makers are welcome to join in.

I'm looking forward to my Northern Quarter fix! A mooch along the fashion market out side Debenhams, followed by a trip to Den, my fave interiors shop, a coffee and chat with the crafty girls in the craft centre, finished off with a vintage clothing shop in retro rehab. If I've still got time after that, a trip to Abakan (an aladdins cave of fabric treats) to get some nice trimmings and pick up some cute fabrics.
