Kick starting ‘Alice Selwood’ Design Company by raising money towards a Digital Embroidery Machine.
The snazziest little lady around – this jolly beastie has 15 needles for colour changing designs, laser point self-cutting technology and only runs at 240V! With an embroidery field of 400x520mm and speeds of 1000 stitches per minute, this machine will transform my design capabilities and enable me to continue pushing the boundaries of digital embroidery. THE CATCH: this machine retails at £10,495 + VAT: so I am in need of your help to raise a small fortune!
Hello! I am Alice Selwood.
I am a Cornish Textile Designer with a passion for great design and embroidery. My goal is to push the boundaries and capabilities of digital embroidery technology, going beyond quick stitch logos to create something truly beautiful.
Since graduating in 2015 I have had an incredible year!
September – I won the Wilcom prize at the New Designers London show with my graduate, digital embroidery, collection ‘ Kernewek Bywedh – The Cornish Life.’ This provided me with the design software and a sponsored embroidery machine (for 6 months). I needed this to be able to continue designing for myself after university.
Following this I was selected by Texprint and taken to show in London and Paris.
October – I won an award with Hand and Lock for my uniquely embroidered statement chemise.
November – I was invited by the Embroiders Guild to exhibit my work in Harrogate and London.
This has given me the courage to set up my own business; designing and selling bespoke cushions/soft furnishings, beautifully embroidered bags and art pieces. I’ve been approached by numerous publishers and as a result have been featured in ArtsThread, WGSN Trend Forecast, and most recently, VOGUE. I am also soon to be featured in House of Coco, Mr X-Stitch and Elle Decoration.
My first year as a designer has been amazing. My digital embroidery collection is growing, and product range is expanding, but now I NEED YOUR HELP!! To assist start up I was lucky enough to recieve the loan of a machine, which has now come to an end, so I need to invest in a new machine to keep going!!
THANKYOU so much for reading through and supporting great design!!
