Annabel Wilson - Townhill Studio

I’m Annabel. I live and work in the beautiful abbey town of Sherborne in Dorset. Here I have been creating and designing with shibori for 15 years. There is such delight in the process of hand sewing, it is a meditative practice and the slow stitching of shibori enables me to take life one stitch at a time.

The wonderful craft of shibori stitch resist is totally fascinating and I get great pleasure from exploring new ways of manipulating the fabric to create my latest designs and passing these ideas on to you.

Furthermore, I love to make beautiful things – to improve our home environment, to bring pleasure and add colour to our lives.

Additionally, I am passionate about introducing others to the delights of shibori stitch resist and enabling them to create their own beautiful patterned fabrics. You can learn shibori with me. I enable this by designing step by step downloadable patterns, writing my blog, running workshops and making video tutorials. There is nothing so satisfying as creating yourself.
