 Samantha Newbury - writer, artist, craftswoman



 Follow this link for my Folksy Shop



Hello and welcome to my website.

My name is Samantha Newbury and I'm a  writer, artist and craftswoman. Although I write all sorts of things, I am predominantly a poet and my first poetry collection 'Finding My Tail' was published by Indigo Dreams Publishing in July 2013.


Sainsburys Book Signing March 2014 


My artwork includes pencil drawings, photography and one off embroidered pictures.

I also make a range of handcrafted items including handbags, bunting, bridal sashes, Christmas stockings and decorations, which are  now available via my Folksy Shop as well as at craft shows, pop-up shops and local stockists. I'm also on Twitter @BagsPoemsCrafts .

For regular updates on poetry, new designs and upcoming events check out my Facebook page here. 

My other interests encompass; books in general, children's literature and fairy tales in particular, astrology, architecture, cinema, theatre (especially musicals), dragons, crystals, photography, music and gardening.

Why ''?  Well the other half usually refers to me as Smanf so it seemed reasonable choice. Have a rummage about, and I hope you enjoy your visit.
