MY BIO

Jo creates stunning pieces of original textile art inspired by British wildlife, evoking the beautiful colours of the countryside. An accomplished artist and designer with over thirty years' industry experience, Jo uses the exciting technique of free motion embroidery to 'draw' the details of the design onto the fabric with the sewing machine, bringing the piece to life. With her sophisticated use of colour and stitching technique, Jo captures the delicate detail of our wonderful wildlife such as birds, hares and wildflowers. The admiration and love Jo has for our British countryside is evident in every piece she produces. She can often be seen stitching 'on location' with her sewing machine and battery pack, gathering inspiration directly from nature and sketching it with fabric and thread. Once she has created the original, handmade design, a local professional photographer then takes a high quality photo of Jo's work. The design is then printed onto Jo's range of beautiful homewares. All items are proudly made in the UK. Jo has spent a long time sourcing and visiting the manufacturers which are able to deliver the finest quality products. She is confident that all products show off her designs at their best, and crucially, are timeless and made to last. Jo's work has been featured in Period Living and Staffordshire Life Magazine. Recent solo exhibitions include the Museum of Cannock Chase, Staffordshire (2017) and Gallery at 12, Staffordshire (2017). After a successful few days at Harrogate Home and Gift Buyers' Festival in July 2018, Jo is now proudly stocked in many shops across the UK. A selection of wall hangings, cushions and lampshades can be seen in shops and galleries across the UK, with the full range available www.johilltextiles.co.uk including many exclusive designs and products! Feeling creative? Jo also runs a popular programme of workshops throughout the year on free-motion embroidery, lampshade making and many others. Please see the Workshops page for further details. Bring a little bit of nature into your home and celebrate the wonderful diversity of our wildlife!

MY BUSINESS TIPS

I'm not sure I'm qualified to give business tips but my best advice as a designer is to always create things that you love, and don't try to imitate anyone else!
