A little about me…..
My name is Dee Hudson, I live in the UK, Medway in Kent to be more exact. I have been in the textile industry for 30 years. Working in both fashion and interiors. My mum taught me how to Sew, Weave, Spin, Quilt, Embroider, Crochet…. in fact if it’s made of fabric, I have probably made it.
I started my working life in soft furnishings, then decided that I wanted to work in fashion, I did an apprenticeship in the Fur trade as fur machinist, but decided to leave 3 years later as the industry was declining due to trends. Back to the soft furnishings to complete my apprenticeship in interior design.
In 2004 I decided to get some formal qualifications in art and design. so did my BETC in Art and Design and a ‘A’ level in Fine Art, Then on to University to study for my BA in Applied and Decorative Arts. Majoring in Textiles.
