Madeleine Millington is best known for her work with recycled, dyed blankets. Her main signature has been a bright, bold use of colour and there is often a touch of humour in her ideas. Her inspiration comes from Medieval and Elizabethan periods, which are both rich and exciting in embroidery, as well as Folk Art with its bold and simple shapes. Madeleine enjoys classical music, gardening and going to the theatre, and she teaches regularly for both the Embroiderer's and the Quilters' Guild. She has also had articles published in numerous embroidery, patchwork and quilting magazines and is the designer behind the successful kit range 'Blankits'. You can find more information about Madeleine and her work on her website, www.madeleinemillington.com.
I taught Art in Schools before starting a family. I studied City & Guilds Embroidery and designs and then went on to teaching the subject myself here in Exeter.
I have always been interested in making and my mother made a lot of our clothes and so I was brought up with fabric and thread around me.
Over twenty years.
I source my materials in various ways. Charity shops, sales and also a lovely collection of friends look out for old blankets for me.
Knitting & Stitching show at Alexandra Palace.
We will wait and see!
Do not be afraid to have a go particularly when it comes to working with colour.
A lovely big darning needle.
I have travelled all over the UK, but not abroad.
A lot of my inspiration comes from observation but I also look to Medieval and Elizabethan embroideries as well as Folk Art.
