Tilly Tea Dance

Maxine Smith is a lifelong fabric artist who loves bringing a home to life with quirky, unique and sumptuous pieces of textile art. 

Maxine takes inspiration from the dramatic landscapes, hillsides, hedgerows and gardens of Shropshire. With her brand, Tilly Tea Dance, she particularly likes collage, needle-felting, free-machine embroidery and hand sewing. 

Maxine loves incorporating vintage and reclaimed fabrics, buttons, beads, jewellery and other items in her work to give them a second chance at being beautiful.
