Hi, I'm Caroline Pearce
My husband Richard and I built and opened Bryher Gallery in 2012 where not only do we sell his and other local makers artwork its also my workshop. I mainly work with textiles after developing my sewing skills despite not being allowed to use the 'good girls' electric sewing machine at school donkey's years ago.
I first came to Scilly in 1977 as a seasonal worker in The Mermaid where I meet Richard, we lived on St Mary's till 1981 until we moved to Bryher. It wasn't until the 1985 I started my Sewing Business mainly refurbishing Tresco holiday homes and both hotels in Recent years I have just concentrated on sewing stock for the Bryher Gallery.
I really can't imagine living anywhere else.
