About


I’ve always been obsessed with fabric and I’ve loved sewing since I was a little girl. My Grandma Vee taught me embroidery and English paper piecing, and I still love hand sewing.  I have a passion for traditional British Design like William Morris and Liberty of London, but I also love to mix these classics with modern fabrics and designs to make something totally new. 

I’m originally from Liverpool, a beautiful city on the water in the Northwest of England. After finishing university, I ran a retail business selling household textiles before moving to the US in 2007. I now live in Austin, a beautiful city in the heart of Texas, with my American husband, our three children and our Wheaten Terrier, Seamus.

Morris Textiles brings together my love of British design and fabric with my retail experience. I am passionate about fabric and all things sewing, but also about great customer service. I want you to be delighted with your order so please e-mail me if you have any questions or issues and I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

At Morris Textiles, we are united by an appreciation of fine British fabrics. Our customers, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or origin, are always welcome to join in celebrating the warmth and joy that comes from our community of crafters and quilters across the globe. Morris Textiles is committed, now and in the future, to promoting the inclusivity and diversity that brightens our world, much like the fabrics we know and love.
