Gail is a designer/maker living in Lancashire, England. She creates fashion accessories from wool mix felt as she wanted to use felt in a sculptural way.  She thinks textiles must be in her blood. In tracing her family tree she discovered her ancestors worked in the textile mills of Lancashire as far back as 1800 and probably beyond.
