Here’s an excerpt of the interview:

EM: Hey Wendy! Thanks for chatting with me. So to start with, please can you tell us a bit about where you live?

WM: Yes of course. I live in East Lothian, Scotland with Gregor, my big handsome man, and my two lovely cherubs: Woody, 12, and Harvey, nine. We share the house and mostly the sofa with Eddie, a leggy black lurcher, and the garden with two chooks, Cherie and Sylvie.

We think the house was previously a Georgian farmhouse – it has big grand rooms with gorgeous cornice detailing and large fireplaces, but it needs a lot of time and energy to get it how we would really like it. Undoubtedly we will want to move just at the point of completion…

EM: You used to work in fashion – how did you get into rug design?

WM: By accident! I’d just moved back to Scotland from London when I was introduced to a local businessman who had a wonderful little workshop by the sea creating tufted rugs. They needed some design input and asked if I was up for the challenge!

EM: What do you love about rugs?
