Cheese Before Bedtime is the pseudonym of Otago based artist, and self confessed stitchaholic, Amy Jones.
Cheese Before Bedtime came into being after Amy was made redundant from her job in visual merchandising and design. She credits this background as inspiration for her work “…(a) love of outfitting and styling still comes through in my stitched designs - it's really like mannequin dressing but on a much smaller (and craftier) scale!”
Each Cheese Before Bedtime piece has it’s own personality and no two are the same. Most pieces are based on photos or images that interest Amy and are stitched as outlines before she decides on clothes, colours and accessories by stitching on various fabrics and embroidering on details. The finished piece is then wrapped over a frame to keep it strong, ready for your wall as an individual piece of art or to sit amongst friends.
