Wales at Home

I've recently been in contact with Welsh company 'Wales at Home', and have been chatting to editor Nicola, who had lovely things to say about my work...

'With stylish tea towels now a must have accessory for any modern kitchen, Charlotte Macey's quintessentially English Beach Huts and Cupcakes tea towels are a breath of fresh air with the designer's distinctive signature illustrations.'
Nicola Wilkes, Editor, Wales at Home (interiors and lifestyle guide)

Egg Cosy Alert...

I am excited to announce that 'Charlotte Macey Textiles' is finally off the ground (so to speak)!
This has been in the pipeline for a wee while... it has taken months to sample til I'm completely satisfied with the products I am making, I've been on many fabric sourcing expeditions, and have spent a fair few hours at my sewing machine, as well as continuing with my 'day job'... it's been a bit of a battle.

The 2009 range features locally sourced linens and vintage cottons. The first cosy to emerge has been made from beautiful buttercup coloured cotton, with a unique 'meadow flower' stitch design and appliqued floral cotton. The second egg cosy is made from lavender linen/cotton, incorporating vintage Liberty fabric (an exciting relic found at the bottom of my mum's fabric collection!) and a floral cotton lining. I hope you enjoy the initial pictures of my 2009 collection, and I hope to put some more up soon...
