Buffy Fletcher


 

Buffy Fletcher has lived on the edge of the Mendips near Wells for more than 15 years. She designs and makes her own range of knitwear in wool, silk, linen and other natural fibres. She designs garments using traditional shapes such as ganseys and shepherd's smocks. Her emphasis is on using colour and pattern to give a new and distinctive feel to traditional ideas. Buffy worked in the field of vocational guidance until redundancy gave her the impetus to develop her passion for textiles and colour. She is self taught, though her fascination with textiles had resulted in a lifetime of experimentation with spinning, weaving and hand-knitting before moving on to working with a knitting machine.
