Paul Newell Sailcloth Cushions
These cushions are made in a working sail loft by Paul Newell, who does the stitching, and his wife, artist Vanessa Byrne who works with him on the designs. (See separate listing for her paintings.)
Paul was born and brought up in the Isle of Wight. His father was a boatbuilder; Paul has been a sailmaker all his life and he has his own business in Bembridge.
A keen sailor, he did the second Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race and is an eager participant in the big annual sailing bonanza that is Cowes Week as well as cross channel and local sailing club events. He owns a half tonne racing boat, Chartreuse, and competes in it in every Round The Island Race. He is not averse to delivering yachts to the Caribbean if required
