Millicent Crow is her blog and crafty name...and here's the wonderful Emily and her partner Sam, looking stupendously spiffy and fantastic at the recent Auckland Art & Craft Fair in Aotea Square. I grabbed this picture (with permission) from Em's facebook page. I think its such a beautiful display of the wonderous talents of this girl. & here below is the rad duo singing some folky tunes at the Sew Love opening eve. They have just launched their facebook page for Mermaid & Mariner.
I feel ever so lucky, and the creative community too are lucky to have Emily sharing the love and teaching a couple of workshops coming up over the next few weeks. Some of you may have met her as part of our Sew Some Love team and Splore this year...
Hi I'm Emily and I like to draw. In the corner of my bedroom, Millicent Crow HQ, I turn my drawings into gocco prints, screenprints, cards, bunting, pouches, stamps and badges, which I sell through my business Millicent Crow. I get a lot of my inspiration from the past and love finding photographs of people’s ancestors abandoned in op shops – I often use these photos as starting points for my drawings. Finding new uses for old materials is important to me and you might find an old blanket being given a new life as a backing for one of my brooches, or one of my pouches lined with a vintage sheet.
