My name is Amanda Wood and I can't remember a time when I haven't stitched. It's an addiction.
I trained in textiles at London College of Fashion and afterwards I have always followed my heart and managed to land a job in something creative from Tambour Beader to Paper&Print Consultant to Greeting Card Designer. I had my own successful business for 3 years selling handmade greeeting cards and then I was offered a job doing the same thing (only I didn't have to make 1000 of each design!!)
It was this job in greeting cards that led me to Bath where I spent 8 years designing in house for two large companies.
I decided this wasn't enough creatively and here I am.
I am ambitious and love what I do. Whilst I feel I am very lucky to be doing what I love, I feel I have worked hard to get here!
I take great care in what I do and every piece I make is lovingly created and designed.
I hope you get as much pleasure from my pieces as I do from making them.
