Listening to You

By Rachel Awes on February 2, 2018

This dear artist, Daniela Gargiulo, is a sister Gudrun Sjoden ambassador in the U.K!:

The pic above is Daniela wearing some glory from Gudrun’s new spring collection, and if that isn’t enough to be delighted by, she also makes her own dresses AND ukulele cases!:

Ivy Arch is the creative project of British artist-maker Daniela Gargiulo. A lifetime crafter, maker and fabric hoarder, the birth of her daughter gave her the opportunity to leave a career in publishing and launch her own craft label. Her handmade quilted ukulele cases and appliqué bags took the international ukulele playing community by storm and she made and sold over 100 of these in a 3 year period. In 2013 Daniela pledged to give up buying clothes for a year and embarked on sewing her own handmade wardrobe – and she hasn’t stopped sewing since!

One of Gudrun Sjödén’s colourful ambassadors, Daniela continues to make and create from her seaside home in Lancing, West Sussex, UK. She also works on local arts and heritage projects, and with her ukulele partner Harriet Booth runs L.U.V. Club – Lancing Village’s ukulele jam.
