Who is Theodora
Theodora Cleave .. .
I am Barb Smith, the designer of the Theodora Cleave label
a reflection of my inspirational spirit.
A Small & intimate business , it is the individual way I love to meet my customers ....
In this internationally successful business, you deal directly with the creator of the wood buttons, brooches ,decorations, stitchery designs...etc !
There were times I also did paint fabric lessons from 2 of my stitchery books under the trade name of Woodcutter's Daughter .
as well as stitcheries & quilts, cloth dolls & santas
I have published 4 stitchery books in the past under my old trading name of Woodcutter's Daughter & 3 booklets for stitching under Theodora Cleave
Buttons in projects appear in French magazines & Australian publications also
In a recently ( 2018) released book in a quilt publication by Quilt Mania is a beautiful thank you for my mentoring conversations with Lisa of Max & Lousie Pattern Company
Recently a German cross stitch designer , Ulrike, has acquired copyright to convert some of my stitchery designs into cross stitch...and will be produced in a book in 2019.
I have seen one & it looks amazing... a new life begins.
I have integrity in originality & hope it is always respected for that by everyone
