Interviews and features for Flair Magazine

About this project

Flair was a beautifully produced magazine for machine embroiders for which I conducted and wrote up well-received interviews with designers and suppliers (one of whom took me on as a copywriter after seeing the interview); I also researched and produced features on a variety of topics, such as pearls, sewing machines, needles and pins. Flair only disappeared in 2014 because of the death of the owner.

Sample

A regular comment on production of one of a whole series of articles in the field of sewing:

‘That is brilliant, well done. Great reading. It goes in as it is!’
