Hello! My name is Eileen and Touch Wood Design is the one-person handmade craft business that takes up my spare time in my little old worker’s cottage on the sunny side of Brisbane. Textiles are my passion, but I appreciate all sorts of good design and art, so not just the woven kind gets featured on this blog.
Touch Wood Design started with an exhibition of cushions hanging on a washing line in a friend’s restaurant a few years ago. I have continued to make cushions, but have also subsequently held exhibitions including my hand embroidered bags and textile art. I have also been known to make children’s toys and the odd frock.
Visit my blog on Saturdays to see the latest Saturday Special vintage sewing pattern from my collection.
If you like what you see, please leave a comment so I know I’m not talking to myself. If you’d like to contact me directly, email touchwoodbrisbane [AT] gmail.com.
Thanks for looking!
