A bit about Mercedes... Mercedes lives just outside Brighton with her husband Graham and their two cats, Maggie and Erica. Although their two children have flown the nest, Mercedes still uses them as guinea pigs for new designs and fabrics she wants to try out. Having worked in IT for over 20 years, Mercedes has a keen interest in all things technical and wants to know the ins and outs and whys of everything. Some years ago Mercedes conquered her fear of stretch fabric. Now it’s her passion. Developing new techniques and encouraging others to use and love this fabric has become her crusade.
