Introduction Welcome to the Room for Change Blog! I am a textile designer who loves auctions, rummaging through car boot sales, second-hand shops and being creative. Anything old and broken, or vintage that has outlived its usefulness, I can mend and transform into pieces that are usable again. I make an eclectic mix of colourful sometimes vintage bazaar style pieces that are sometimes slightly kitsch, sometimes romantic and shabby chic but always visually stimulating and fun to wear or to have in your house. I creatively up-cycle, making new products of better quality and wherever possible I use recycled materials. Useless bits and bobs can be converted into higher value items that can be useful for a long time. In this blog I will chronicle the creations I make and sell on the website. Grab a cup of tea and I hope I can inspire you. Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. (as George Bernhard Shaw said) because in all of us and the world around us there is room for change. Marjolein
