My name is Eliza Conway and I am a retired teacher which means I can
devote my time to textiles. I have been a member of the Staithes Arts and
Crafts since 2003. I make rag rugs using old woollen blankets or wool yarn. I
sell carpet wool at 50p per ball and it is very popular. If you have bought
some and would like more please email me and it can be posted to you.
I also enjoy knitting small animals and gifts.
I usually have a stand at five events per year -
- Unravel (Farnham, Surrey in
- Wonderwool Wales (Builth
Wells in April),
- Woolfest (Cumbria in
- Staithes Festival
- Yarndale (Skipton, Yorkshire
At these shows I sell the carpet wool, cones of wool, rugs plus vintage
textile treasures collected far and wide.
