Wholecloth Studio was started in 2017 by quilt maker Elli Beaven to bring together her one-of-a-kind quilts and quilted homewares made from high quality repurposed and waste textiles. Over time this grew to incorporate her own plant dyed textiles. Then in June 2020 she and her family realised a long held dream to move aboard a sailing boat. Wholecloth Studio now embodies a greater focus on plant dyed textiles and smaller hand stitched projects, all produced by Elli in her compact floating 'studio' (aka the guest cabin) as she sails the Mediterranean and beyond.
Her forthcoming book, Conscious Crafts: Quilting, is due to be published in June 2021 and can be pre-ordered now.
