Mandy ShawMandy Shaw is one of our best-loved designers, with a heart-warming range of kits for Christmas and any special occasion. She’s the creative spark behind Dandelion Designs, and “Maker of all things lovely”. The queen of redwork, Mandy’s red-and-white range adds classic style to your home. It’s her favourite embroidery technique and although it’s simple and quick to learn – making it great for new stitchers as well as experienced needleworkers – it’s extremely effective.
As a child Mandy loved applique and now enjoys working with machine applique too. Her whimsical characters include her spoolie dolls, which are well-loved for their vintage charm. Mandy’s kits include wall hangings, cushions, garlands and small hanging decorations, as well as soft dolls and toys. They contain lots of special trimmings – buttons, ricrac and ribbons – to make your creations really special.
