Welcome to SewDanish' Blog !

I, Birgitte Hendricks would like to welcome you to my blog. I'm a Danish Textile Artist, living in England with my American Husband. Since early childhood I have been making things. Through out my life, I have never stopped creating. Creating and making things makes me happy. It energizes me.

I love building up surfaces from scratch with focus on the texture. I often use very basic and recycled materials in my work. I find it very appealing giving discarded items a new lease of life. It challenges me. Probably due to my Danish background, I'm very attracted to light to medium tones and colours, often combined with a minimalistic, clean design.

Most of my items in my shop "SewDanish" are One Of A Kind or made in limited editions.

Your blog is off to a great start!! I am fairly new to blogging too. It is very fun. The hard part is finding the time to blog often. I would jot down notes of things that pop into your mind to blog about, and then you won't have to be coming up with ideas on the spot.
