I have stitched for many years but found doing a City & Guilds course in Embroidery opened up a whole new world. Although I tend to favour more traditional textiles I enjoy exploring new techniques and products. Recently I started an online sketchbook course, I’ve found it challenging but hope it will have a positive influence on future work.
I am also a member of a local Patchwork group.
Stitching is more of an obsession than a passion for me! Since completing City and Guilds a good few years ago, I have experimented with various media and have enjoyed stitching on paper in particular. In order to improve my design skills and art work I am currently following an on line sketchbook course with the Linda and Laura Kemshall, and I am sure this will influence my textiles in future. It’s great being a member of Fimbria for the companionship and support we give and get from each other.
