hello there! my name is lucie summers (mainly known around t'internet as lu) and i'm a surface pattern designer and printer. i sell my hand printed fabrics under the label summersville and i have designed two collections for moda fabrics. i have also recently written a book called called 'quilt improv', which is due out august/september 2013. my new venture, the turkey shed, is an outbuilding at the farm where i live in suffolk, just outside newmarket. it's actually been a studio for years, where i did lots of 'wet' work - dyeing and painting fabric. the idea is to host a variety of creative workshops, from screen printing and patchwork to different creative textile techniques. i am currently working with tutors to provide an exciting programme - stay tuned for its release within the next month or so! the turkey shed itself has space for 8 students with plenty of parking. we are situated in the countryside just off the A14 between newmarket and thetford, and within easy reach from cambridge, norwich, ipswich and london.
